Two weeks ago, the bank adopted a resolution and I was mandated to provide his next of kin for the payment of this fund within 28 working days or forfeit the money to the bank as abandoned by the owner with no trace of next of kin. The bankers had planned to invoke the abandoned property decree of 1936 to confiscate the funds after the expiration of the period given to me.
