Firstly, I do not know if you are very familiar with my family case with the present
civilian Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria under President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Following the sudden death of my late father - (Gen.Sani Abacha) on the 8th of June 1998
(Former Head of State and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria),
I and members of my family have been thrown into a state of utter confusion, frustration and hopelessness.
Our accounts in banks in Switzerland and other European countries have been frozen illegally by the
Federal Government of Nigeria, allegedly us that the funds were siphoned away while my late father
ruled Nigeria from 1993 until his sudden death in 1998. Our family lawyers are still on the case at
the Supreme Court fighting to have some of the money returned to us.
