6 Gidado Idris Road
First, let me apologise for the surprise or embarrassment this mail may
cause you.I beg for your sincere understanding With due regards, I take the
liberty to contact you for this urgent business transaction which will be
of immense benefit to all parties concerned.
I am soliciting your immediate assistance or co-operation as to enable my
family round up the remains of our life. Following the sudden death of my
husband General Sani Abacha, who was the former head of state of Nigeria in
June 8, 1998.I have been thrown into a state of utter confusion,
frustration and hopelessness by this present civilian administration.
I have been subjected to physical and mental torture by the security agents
or rather his followers in my country.And believe me, I and my children
have not done anything wrong, we were never part of my late husband regime.
The new president has succeeded in turning the whole country against us.
This is just because, this present day President of Nigeria planned a coup
d'etat against my husband in 1995 and was charged by the military headed by
my late husband for treasonable offence.He was tried,sentenced and jailed
by my late husband's government before my late husband died . It is rumored
that my husband was secretly murdered by these same people,"May his soul
rest in perfect peace".
This same man (Rtd.General Olusegun Obasanjo) was released and elected as
the President of this country in 1999 and since then he has openly vowed
that, he will frustrate my family and wipe out our entire family race and
he is really doing that to us now.My son was framed up and is still under
detention,arraigned before the federal Supreme court of Nigeria holding in
Abuja for an offence he did not commit. As a widow that is so traumatized,
I have lost confidence with everybody within the country.
You must have heard over the media reports and the internet on the recovery
of various huge sums of money deposited by my husband in different
Trustee/Deposit firms abroad, some companies wi llingly give up their
secrets and disclosed our money confidently lodged there on outright
Some companies willingly give up their secrets and disclosed our money
which we confidentially lodged there on outright blackmail.In fact US$620
million dollars were confiscated by Luxembourg authoritiesthe,550 million
dollars in Swiss bank accounts linked to my husband was frozen by the Swiss
authorities since 1999, Fifteen(15) British banks were actually censured in
March 2001 for
lax controls on my Late Husband's Bank Accounts.

This present government have turned the people against my entire family and
are really out to purnish us and make my family poor for life.I can not
really explain the measure of the kind of suffering my family is going
through right now.
Come to think of it, I am a woman and I was not in any way part of my
husband's military regime. My late husband may have stepped on toes during
his tenure, he was a difficult soldier and I never had any control over him
or his government.
So I do not see why I and his poor children should be going through all
I have been looking for help and due to my previous experience I am afraid
that if I contact any other embassy I might be exposed.Please do not betray
me.Some time ago, I deposited the sum of [US$64.7 million U.S. dollars]for
my late husband in a security firm, whose name I cannot disclose now until
I gain your trust and I can open communication with you.The money was
deposited there in a
form which I would explain later.
I engaged the assistance of an Italian Business man by name Mr.Paulo Luigi
of Milano Construction S.P.A who assisted to finance and receive the
release of the US$50 Million to him for Safe Keeping.I was suprised to find
out Later that Mr.Paulo Luigi has frudulently deceived me and my family.He
made away with my money and all efforts to trace him proved abortive.
I will be very grateful if you could receive the balance of US$14.7 Million
for safe keeping.I never really intended to touch this money which is very
safe and secure in the vault of this security firm. But due our present
situation I do not have any other option.
I need money to safe my son's life. All our accounts here and oversea have
been frozen and all our properties apart from this only house which we live
in. We are badly in need of money. My son Mohammed is very sick in prison
and his lawyers are ripping us off. We have almost resulted to state of
The problem is that I cannot lay my hands on this money due to the fact
that all our international passports belonging to any member of my family
has been seized by this government, pending when they finish ivestigation
into my late husbands assets.This arrangement is only known to you, myself,
my lawyer and my Son who was discharged by a Supreme court in Abuja of all
charges but is still being held in prision by the present Nigerian
