his business associates in one of their outings on a

one of the prime banks here in Nigeria, that he used my name as his only son as the next of kin in depositing the fund.

He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth that he was poisoned by his business associates, That I should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice
