I became the head of auditing and accounting in the year 1997. In that same year, I carried out a general auditing, then I discovered that there is an account opened in this bank in 1992.

died in 1999, unknown to the relatives that such account is existing. My investigation revealed to me that no other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it such that the account has no trace of other beneficiary.
In 1997, this account contained the sum of $6.3million, but in 1999, I noticed that about $2.6million was transferred to this account from Switzerland and another $3million from South Africa was also transferred to it, making a total of Eleven Million, Nine Hundred Thousand US Dollars ($11,900,000.00), but up till this day, no withdrawal was made.

According to the law, at the expiration of five (5) years from the death of the owner, the money will
