morning with an envelope contained copies of document and the documents
are your compensation payment file.

They stated that you disclaim your compensation fund worth US$20.5m
United States Dollars) and their purpose of visiting my office is to
seek support and have my signature on the documents for easy
confiscation of your compensation fund to the government budget account

judiciary i refused to sign the documents.

However, due to humanitarian ground and sympathy. I immediately called
up the John Glover Roberts Jr, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of
United States and explain your matter to him as regards to your payment
