Due to the chaos and endemic crisis caused by his continued absence in the Country to handle his duties as the a President and the embarrassment caused to the King of Saudi Arabia on the President’s continued stay in his country, he was forced to depart Saudi Arabia on an air ambulance back to Nigeria. During this 3months absence; my elder brother in collaboration with his close childhood friend Turai Yar’adua, who is the beloved wife of the President connived and stole up to 55Billion Nigerian Naira out of the 70Billion Naira officially removed from the Federal purse (Equivalent of about US$38Million; this money was claimed to be used to take care of the sick President. Turai and my elder brother has secretly shared this money and my brother gave me the authority to move all his share of US$17Million to a foreign country far away from Africa at once because he cannot be noticed by Government that he has this kind of money because that will put him in direct serious problem in the Country; my elder brother has been removed from office and already replaced by another person; I have to act immediately by taking off with the money.
