this information came to me through a member of the senate who is our family friend and one of my late husbands loyalists. in view of that i in agreement with my family have consulted our family attorney, his very willing to assist push this money out of Nigeria without any delay.

he further advised that we should look for reliable and truthful person from abroad in whose account the money would be transferred, meanwhile our family attorney by name CHIEF CHIMA NWACHUKWU have held meeting and concluded the whole transfer arrangement with the bank manager where these money is lodge and duly awaiting the foreign account where this fund would be transferred into.

after i had deliberations with my family, we resolved that you will be compensated with 20% of the total sum for nominating an account for this purpose and any other assistance you will give.10% of the total sum has been mapped out to pay all local and international expenses like telephone and
fax bills. Expenses you may incur in the processes of opening an account and other expenses which may be incurred in the transfer processes,5% has been concluded to the local bank manager here in Nigeria who would be facilitating the transfer.
