The source of this funds is as follows: During the last Military Regine here in Nigeria, the government officials set up companies and awarded them selves contracts which were grossly over invoiced in the various ministries.

However, by virtue of our position as civilian servants and members of this panel we cannot acquire this money in our names. I have therefore been mandated as a matter of trust by my colleagues of this panel to look for a foreign partner into whose account we would transfer the sum of US$42,000,000.00 (FOURTY-TWO MILLION DOLLARS) hence we are writing this letter. We have agreed to share the money thus: 1. 20% for the account owner 2. 70% for us ( the officials) and 3. 10% to be based in settling taxation and all local and foreign expenses. It is from the 70% that we wish to commence importation business.
