Ralph Uwazuruike, leader of Biafra Independent Movement, has accused the federal government of masterminding the travail of Allen Onyema, the Chief Executive Officer of Air Peace Limited.
He said the federal government is planning with the Economic and Financial Crime Commission to probe Onyema.
According to him, the plan by the EFCC to probe Onyema and the recent call by President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Assistant on Social Media, Loretta Onochie, asking Onyema to face his charges in the United States of America indicated that the FG was behind the probe.
He said Onochie spoke the mind of the Presidency but warned that Ndigbo would rise against any plan to humiliate Onyema.

The EFCC had, on Saturday, set up a special panel to look into the allegation of $44.9 million wire frauds and money laundering against Onyema.
Uwazuruike said, “I am Ijele of Igboland and it’s my responsibility to defend Igbo people since the demise of Dim Odimegwu Ojukwu, which Onyema is one of, and I tell you that I have all it takes to resist the FG from persecuting my people”.
“We have been pushed to the wall by the Federal Government and Onyema’s case will prove a point, so he should not be intimidated and must remain firm”.
