Ever since his death the money has been lying unclaimed. Now i need you cooperation to claim this money because only someone from foreign coountry can stand as the beneficiary.And the Banking law stipulates that any money lying unclaimed for four years will be transfered to federal government suspent account with cenral bank of Nigeria.
