This report says the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has waded into the forty-four point nine million dollars alleged fraud and money laundering case against Air Peace Chief Executive ALLEN ONYEMA hours after his indictment in the United States.

It was gathered that the EFCC raised a special panel to investigate the matter shortly after receiving the charges against ONYEMA.

The EFCC is also investigating two Nigerian banks for allegedly facilitating the transfer of the money to the US and processing letters of credit to buy planes for Air Peace. 

It was further gathered that the probe would cover the activities and inflows into the accounts of four non-governmental organisations and non-profit groups sponsored by ONYEMA.

ONYEMA was indicted by the US Department of Justice along with his finance officer, EJIROGHENE EGHAGHA.

They were accused of moving more than twenty million dollars from Nigeria through some United States banks in a scheme involving false documents based on the purchase of airplanes.
