My husband was a highly reputable business magnet (a Gold/Cocoa merchant) who operated in the capital of my country during his days.
It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in my country during one of his business trips abroad on 12th.Febuary 2004.Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been master minded by an uncle of his who travelled with him at that time.
But God knows the truth! Before his death on February 12th Febuary 2004 he called the secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told him that he has the sum of eighteen million, seven hundred thousand United State Dollars. (USD$18.700,000) left in one of the leading security company while he have uncomplete Gold business which worthy amount 1500 kilograms.
He further told him that he deposited the money in my name, and finally issued a written instruction to his uncle whom he said is in possession of all the necessary legal documents to this money and the security company .I really don't know what to do. This is because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in my country . The death of my husband actually brought sorrow to my life.
