The embattled boss of Nigerian airline Allen Onyema has dissociated himself from a human rights suit filed on his behalf by an Abuja lawyer.
The lawyer, Johnmary Jideobi, filed the suit after Air Peace boss was indicted in the United States for alleged bank fraud and money laundering.
Jideobi wanted the court to enforce fundamental human rights of Onyema.
But Onyema’e lawyers said on Thursday that the Air Peace boss does not know the lawyer and has nothing to do with the case.
“Our Client has no knowledge of the said action and did not consent to the filing of same. As a matter of fact, Our Client does not know the said Mr. Johnmary C. Jideobi.”
