Mysteries has gone in my life. Life has become restless for me in this western part of Africa. 29th September 2004 later in the night the murders come without a pity without a mercy they kill my father in front of me.
My father was a wealthy merchant.The trouble began early last year when my father's associates started suspecting that my father is not giving proper accounts of all the tons of cocoa being cultivated by local farmers in some villages. This mistrust deepens between Jul-Aug 2004 when they discovered a very big some of money my father deposited with one of leading  Bank  here in
Abidjan Cote D'Ivoire.
As a result of this discovery and the enviness of the money ,he was killed by his associates.Before this, he revealed to me the reasons of his being hatred.He directed me where to get the documents of the said deposit, he told me that he enrolled my name as his next of kin for the deposit, being the only child. He advised me that I should not stay in the country because his enemies might equally kill me to reap all his wealth hence my mother died five years ago of cancer.
He instructed me that if he dies, that I should look for a foreign partner who will help me to transfer the money into the person's account and the person will help me to invest the money in his or her country. My father finally died on 29th of September and since then I was out of school and went into hiding because of my father's associates.
All the relevant documents of the $8.5 (eight Million Five  Hundred Thousand dollars) that was deposited in a security company are intact with me now.
