From: Alhaji Usman Gwarzo

Wednesday, March 21, 2001


I wish to introduce myself to you and the reason for my reaching out to you. I am Alhaji Usman Gwarzo, blood cousin and a close confidant to Alhaji Ismaila Gwarzo the immediate past National Security adviser to our late military head of state General Sani Abacha who died mysteriously on the 8th of June 1998.

Following the death of the Dictator Sani Abacha, elections were successfully held in the country and a civilian administration was sworn into power with the assistance of the American Government under the leadership of President Clinton. With the advent of the new democratic administration, a decision was taken by the new president of Nigeria Olusegun Obasanjo to probe and ultimately prosecute all past military officers and their cohorts that served in very strategic capacities in the last military regime of the late Sani Abacha. My cousin Alhaji Ismaila Gwarzo was among those singled out to be punished because of his closeness to the late dictator, General San Abacha, and glaring flagrant violation of human rights in Nigeria, under their administration.

My cousin and I were best of friends having grown up together so he shared all his closely guarded secrets with me, hence the need for absolute confidentiality in carrying out this transaction .My cousin Alhaji Ismaila Gwarzo had amassed monies running into hundreds of millions of dollars stashed in various private foreign accounts around the world.

Presently, he has been confined under a house arrest and waiting to be taken to court by the Government of the day for a charge of looting the treasury in connivance with the late military head of state and a charge of gross human right abuses on the citizens of Nigeria. I was directly informed by my contacts at the Presidential  Villa, the seat of Government, that he would be convicted because of his position as the National Security Adviser and the reported cases of human right abuses under the late dictator. However, I have been hoping that I would use some of his friends connections to get the Government to enlist him amongst the ones to be extended the conditional state pardon as it is usually done during the Islamic sallah celebrations.

I am now constrained into seeking for this assistance today because I cannot keep on waiting on the promises from my contact at the Presidential Villa, that he will be released, I actually waited until today before seeking for this assistance because according to their assurance that the President will be giving an official pardon to all detainees and that my cousin will be considered and be released conditionally, so that we can get him out of this country. The President has delivered his special announcement and nothing of such was mentioned leaving me with no alternative but make this move, and also thus confirming my fears that he will be convicted.

Shortly, before his incarceration and subjection to a house arrest, he entrusted with me the sum of  US$ 12.5 million to be transferred or deposited hurriedly in one of his foreign accounts, but because of this pending probe on his accounts both locally and foreign I had to resort to other means of safe guarding the money in question, hence my seeking your assistance to receive this funds.

I have since had this amount with me stashed away a private security company in Nigeria. I cannot send this money to my brother's Bank accounts abroad for reasons mentioned earlier. I hereby seek your assistance in moving and securing this money in your account abroad. I will adequately compensate you with 20% of the total sum for your assistance and co-operation with me to move this fund out of the country.

The present administration has beamed their search light on any body remotely related to the culprits under detention and I strongly know for certain that I am also under surveillance, as I cannot operate any of my Bank accounts any more, due to their being frozen pending the outcome of the investigation of my cousin.

I intend and safe guard and invest this amount of money abroad, but with a reliable foreign business partner so that we can invest the funds in doing business in your country. Which is why I am soliciting your assistance and cooperation as regards this business. Arrangements are being concluded with a Security company in Europe or one of their branches in the American continent to receive the money in cash depending on where is convenient for you.

I cannot tell the full story of my predicament on this letter. However you can get more information by checking the following web links. Please note that we have a relocation plan for my cousin's children immediately and my own later, due to hostilities which they are suffering in the hands of the general public.  As they cannot even go to school any more.  We will discuss further on this when we hear from you.

Please indicate your willingness to assist me by sending to me the following information; your full name, your company name address and your private phone and fax numbers so that I can contact you and commence the transaction in earnest.

I am waiting to hear from you very soon.

Best regards, Alhaji. Usman Gwarzo.
