Due to the marginalization we have been suffering from the major tribes who is ruling the country, we have decided to take our destiny in our own hands to emancipate our people. For over Forty years the Government in collaboration with foreign firms and they have been drilling crude oil in our communities in Niger Delta. After all these years, there is nothing we benefit from the Federal Government of Nigeria and The many lose of crude also has a bad effect on our agricultural statue and there is still nothing to show for it, hence we decided to take the oil ourselves and sell to whomever is ready to buy.Presently, I have the sum of 100..5 million's of U.S. Dollars in my possession which I want to send to outside of my country because i can't deposit such money to Nigeria account, I have make arrangement with a foreign diplomat that we intend to send abroad.
