Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has issued a strong warning to northern and South-west leaders over embattled Air Peace Chairman, Allen Onyema, who was indicted for bank fraud and money laundering in the United States.
Speaking during a recent broadcast on Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu said he will expose corrupt leaders in the north and in Yoruba land, if any further action is taken against Allen Onyema.
According to him, it was a show of hypocrisy, for people from the South East and South-South to be slammed with corruption allegations, as if leaders from other regions were saints.
“I said I am waiting for them to do something to Allen Onyema, then we will remind the world the number of corrupt people you have in the north and in Yoruba land and then everybody will be investigated.
“And you know IPOB, once we start, we don’t stop until something comes out of it.
“You think that the reputation of Nigeria is bad. We will make it worse. Let them try it,” Kanu said.
KanyiDaily had reported that Onyema was accused by the US Department of Justice (DoJ) of “moving more than $20 million from Nigeria through United States bank accounts in a scheme involving false documents based on the purchase of airplanes.”
Onyema was indicted alongside his chief finance officer, Ejiroghene Eghagha, who is said to have committed aggravated identity theft in connection with the scheme.
