Canada Declares Air Peace CEO Allen Oyeama Wanted For Alleged Fraud In The US

A magistrate court in the U.S has issued a corresponding warrant of arrest for Messrs Onyema and Eghagha in Canada..






Canadian authorities have commenced efforts to execute a corresponding arrest warrant issued for a Nigerian businessman accused of fraud in the United States.

Allen Onyema, chairman of Air Peace Limited in Nigeria, is facing multiple charges of money laundering and bank fraud in excess of $20 million. A United States grand jury recently indicted Mr Onyema and Ejiroghene Eghagha, Air Peace’s head of finance and administration.

Both suspects denied the allegations in a statement Saturday and indicated their determination to fight the charges in court.

Although Messrs Onyema and Eghagha are currently believed to be in Nigeria, judges in the U.S. have been issuing warrants for their arrest, according to court filings seen by PREMIUM TIMES

On September 5, Russell Vineyard, a magistrate at the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, issued a corresponding warrant of arrest for Messrs Onyema and Eghagha in Canada.

American prosecutors had sought the warrant to enable Canadian law enforcement authorities take the suspects into custody if sighted in their jurisdiction.

As part of a longstanding tradition on cross-border crimes, American authorities have briefed their Canadian counterparts about their case against the two Nigerians, documents said.

Similarly, on November 19, Justin Anand, a magistrate at the same district, issued a separate warrant against Messrs Onyema and Eghagha for their arrest in the United States, especially by the U.S. Marshals Service.

Although the major aspects of the alleged fraud were committed in the U.S., some of the bank accounts used in some of the suspicious transactions were domiciled in Canada.

Meanwhile, the United States authorities have frozen about $14.2 million in bank accounts linked to companies registered by Allen Onyema, it is learnt.

  6. I pray God vindicates him if he is innocent. Anytime his post comes on I always remember his heroic act to Nigerians few months ago. I pray it ends in praise for him.

  8. Anybody with a Nigerian passport needs to work very hard to convince
    other nationalities that they are not fraudsters.
    It is a shame. Nigerians should look inwards and stop attacking anyone
    who makes a comment.

    1. We owe you and your ilk no obligations whatsoever. Other nationalities also needs to convince us too that they’re without crime as well. You ignorant, hateful swine !!

  9. Let him clear his name if he's sure to be innocent. Nobody should involve Nigeria government in this.

  10. CFOs of fraudulent employers should be very careful. Once you detect anything, tender in your resignation immediately and make sure you keep records. How sad.

  15. That Air Peace was set and it bought all its aircraft without any credit facility will naturally raise the question of where did all that money come from. Someone in the know must have ratted him out to smear out of envy because he was being termed a hero for freely rescuing Nigerians from south Africa.
