It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad in October 2015.Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of his who traveled with him at that time. But God knows the truth! My mother died when I was just 6 years old, and since then my father took me so special. Before his death on October, 2015 he called the secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told him that he has the sum of US$28.5 Million (TWENTY EIGHT MILLION, FIVE HUNDRED UNITED STATES DOLLARS) left in a financial firm. I am a deaf girl and a university undergraduate and really don't know what to do, I want an account overseas where my inheritance fund can be transfer and after the transaction, I will come over to your country by your help and settle down to plan my future.
