My late husband was killed during to the war in my country by the rebels due to he was to contest for the presidential election in my country.

Before the death of my husband he told me in secret were he kept the documents which he used in making this deposit in a security company in Ghana, he warned me never to allow the first wife Mrs. Enid Ayo to know about this deposit because she will want to take it away from us.
