Barr. Allen Ifechukwu Onyema was born in Benin City in the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria
In 1964 to parents of Anambra State Origin. He had his early education in Benin. He attended several Schools including the prestigious Government College, Ughelli. He left Government College in 1984 having obtained his Higher School Certificate and was directly offered admission to read law at the Nigeria’s Premier University, The University of Ibadan in the same year.
It was in the University of Ibadan that his appetite for peace made him to lead a group of 9 other students to travel to the ancient city of Zaria to quell a raging religious and ethnic riot that claimed lives. As a result of the publicity he and his colleagues received on return to their campus, their enthusiasm grew and this led to the formation of a group known then as Eminent Friends’ Group – a group formed with the objectives of promoting ethnic harmony amongst Nigeria’s diverse ethnic nationalities and fighting the incidence of violence of all forms in our nation.
Barrister Allen Onyema is not only today the National Chairman of FEHN but also has been appointed to the Executive Board of The Global Nonviolence Conference Series Inc.

By this appointment which was confirmed in April 2007, he became the second African ever to be so appointed to the Global Board.
His works of peace particularly in the area of transforming the restive youths of the Niger Delta Region has earned him several national and international honours and recognition.
