My Late husband deposited $25.5M usd in a security company in Burkina faso before his death , knowing that the situation in our country SIERRE LEONE is very volatile during the regime of Johnny Koromah, he decided to keep the money for his children upkeep and future, he lodged the money as family treasures and valuables belonging to him and a foreign business associate and we have the documents and proofs of ownership to the deposit During the intervention of the ECOMOG soldiers to restore the presidency of Alhaji Tejan KABBAH from Johnny Koroma, my husband was among the 23 executed ministers.
