Apologize to Allen Onyema, GPMI Tells US

The President General, Global Peace Movement International (GPMI), Dr. Mike Uyi has described the al­leged indict­ment of the Chair­man and Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer of Air Peace, Allen Onyema by United States Depart­ment of Jus­tice as a concocted conspiracy.

He therefore demanded that the United States should appologise to Onyema within seven days.

Addressing a press conference in Abuja, Dr. Uyi said that the Air Peace Chairman, was being framed up to discredit his philanthropic gestures in Nigeria, Africa and the rest of the world.

Onyema was accused by the United States Department of Justice for allegedly laundering over $20 million from Nigeria through United States bank accounts in a scheme involving false documents based on the purchase of airplanes.

Uyi noted that the Air Peace Chairman was an upright man who believed in the unity of the country and could not have engaged in any criminal act as he is being accused.

He said, “Onyema has over the years built a reputation of integrity, a promoter of peace and a hard-working man, and cannot be allowed to be dragged in the mud by a western conspiracy”.

“He is a philanthropist. He is interested in ensuring peace and tranquility in Nigeria, and has continued to work towards that goal”.

Uyi noted that Allen Onyema organised the 1st Nigeria Forever Project in 2005, with the support of the Federal Government, explaining that the project was done to promote broad nationalism as against ethnic nationalism.

He said, “Onyema supported the government in putting an end to the Niger Delta militancy and also helped in training the group after amnesty was granted to them”.

He described Onyema as a selfless, passionate, humble, responsible, and law-abiding man who could not have changed overnight to become “what he is being accused of”.

The President General also noted that in September 2019, Allen was instrumental in the evacuation of Nigerians from South Africa as a result of Xenophobic attack.

“This act has remained a laudable effort as he was able to converge hundreds of Nigerians willing to return to their dear country”.
