Dear, My late father, Marshall Sokari Harry (died. March 5, 2003) was a Nigerian politician. He was the former National Vice chairman of the All Nigeria People's Party who was later assassinated in Abuja in 2003 during the presidential elections. He was buried in Obuama, 40 kilometers South of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on July 5, 2003. Previous to his murder, he was the chairman of the Rivers State People's Democratic Party. He left his position that year after he threatened to leave the party if the national executive of the party didn't carry out fresh party congresses in the state. He was immediately welcomed into the ANPP soon thereafter which angered the PDP; the late prominent politician was murdered in his Abuja home in the early hours of March 5, 2003, by five men believed to by five men believed to be hired assassins. My father was born on July 6, 1942, in Obuama, Gegema Local Council area of Rivers State, to the family of Chief Sokari Harrison Youngman Tom Big Harry and the late Virginia Harrison. He was educated at the Bishop Crowther Memorial School, Abonnema and the famous Enitonia High School, Borikiri Port Harcourt. He received a honorary doctorate degree in Business Administration from the University of Southern California, Bakersfield, U.S.A. in 1989. He was until his death the chairman and proprietor of Harrison Publishing and Harrison Petroleum Marketing Company. The present PDP government made life so miserable for me and my family as they seized my late father's assets. With the help of our family lawyer, John Okafor, the assets and deposit in Europe are safe and we want to relocate them to your country. The value of the assets is $11.5M, presently with a Finance Company. The family wants you to be in possession of the funds, I will plan to relocate the family to your country. I will appreciate your response. In view to confirm this letter, I will like you to go online (Google or any search website) and confirm that I have stated above. Thanks Sonny Marshall
