Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore Socio-cultural Association and the National Committee of Yoruba Youth (NCYY), have alleged that there is plot to silence the Air Peace boss, Mr. Allen Onyema.
The groups, therefore, who also expressed worries and concern of the safety of Mr. Allen Onyema, drew the attention of Nigerians and the international communities to this plot.
The groups, in a joint statement condemned insinuations in some quarters that a former Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta Affairs and Chairman, Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP), Mr Kingsley Kuku purportedly used billions of Naira stolen from the Amnesty programme to purchase airplanes to start Air Peace, Nigeria’s leading airline.
The Statement signed by Engr. Saleh Alhassan, National Secretary of Miyetti Allah and Comrade Oladimeji Odeyemi, President, National Committee of Yoruba Youth (NCYY), expressed their concern to the development, saying that they cannot fold their arms and allow desperate individuals mess up a honorable individual like Mr Allen Onyema.
The statement observed that with each passing day, it is becoming clearer that the apostles of politics with bitterness are bent on pursuing the path of perdition and do not care if they drag the names of innocent person with them into the mud.
They added that they cannot and will not fold their arms and allow others to mess up Mr Allen Onyema, who has contributed immensely to the socioeconomic transformation and development of the Country, stressing that to remain silent is to allow desperate blackmailers to continue to mislead and misinform Nigerians and the international communities about Mr Allen Onyema and the Air Peace conglomerate.
The statement explained, “We have good reasons to believe just as we have it on good authority that this latest phantom allegations against Air Peace and its Chairman have the imprimatur of a desperate individual, one Austin Ogannanah, a United States based serial blackmailer, who is being used by some characters who are envious of the rising profile of Mr Allen Onyema.”
It noted that the latest allegations is a rehash of some previously unsubstantiated allegations against Mr Allen Onyema, pointing out that the allegations is akin to the proverbial voice of Jacob but the hands of Esau.
