with a heart full of tears I write to seek for your help at this time
of grief in my family. I am Alhaja Mariam Abacha, the wife of
Nigerian former head of state, Late Gen. Sani Abacha.
Soon after the demise of my husband, the succeeding regime of
Abdusallami Abubakar besieged my family and started probing every
activity of my husband while in office. The present civilian
government continued with
probe to the extent of arresting my son Mohammed Abacha alongside
with my husband's Chief Security Officer (CSO), major Hamza Mustapha.
The two are currently facing trial in the court.
Several false allegation of murder of some politician,
Activists/prodemocracy agents; misgovernance and vast loot of the
Nations Treasury were levelled against my husband. As a result, all
our properties have been seized and our Bank Account frozen leaving
us with no
means of livelihood.
The only money left for us is a defaced cash sum of US$40M (Fourty
Million U.S Dollars) contained in three
trunk boxes which I instructed my half brother to take out of the
country immediately my husband died. The money has to be defaced in
order to beat security op eratives while on transit. My half brother
was able to cross the boxes to Cotonou, Benin Republic of West
Africa, and deposited them with a Trust / Security Company as family
Right now, my family is in urgent need of having this money invested
outside West Africa because of several ongoing probes on ex-service
men and also political instasbility in the country.
My request therefore is for you to give me necessary assistance to
claim this money from the security company and transfer it to your
personal account in your country. Our family lawyer will process the
enabiling documents in your name as the Trustee/Beneficiary of the
fund to facilitate its withdrawal.
I have much hope that you will certainly help me out of this crisis
situation. I am equally willing to compensate your effort with the
sum of US$5M when the money arrives your account.
Please note that government is still keeping surveillance over the
activities of my family with regards to travelling and Telephone
calls. Therefore you should treat this business with absolute
confidentiality. All your correspondence to me must be strictly
through my e-mai l address.
The lawyer as my representative would be meeting you in due course on
my behalf as the need may arise.
I assure you that no risk of any kind is involved in this
I eargerly await your immediate reply. Endeavour to give me your
private telephone and fax numbers so that I can reach you anytime.
May God bless you.
ALHAJA MARIAM ABACHA
