FROM THE DESK OF:ENGR. ISA KABIRU.
GREENFIELDS AGRO-ALLIED COMPANY.
10 BROAD STREET,
FOR YOUR KIND ATTENTION,
BUSINESS PROPOSAL: TRANSFER OF USD13.2 M (THIRTEEN
MILLION, TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS)
& BUSINESS INVESTMENTS PARTNERSHIP.
First, I must solicit your strictest confidence in
this transaction, this is by virtue of it's nature as
being utterly confidential and top secret as you were
introduced to us in confidence through the Nigerian
Chamber of Commerce, foreign trade division. and if
the contents of this mail does meet with your
approval, I humbly crave your indulgence.
I am recently retired as the director of finance of
the Federal Ministry Of Power & Steel (FMP&S). During
my tenure, I was also in charge of the tenders board.
The job of the tenders board was to access bids made
to the FMP&S by foreign and local contractors for
execution of contracts recommend to the government for
In the course of our work at the tenders board, we
received a bid of (USD46.8M) from Arab Contractors
Company of Egypt for the refurbishing of the six
thermal flow stations and the supply of 27KVA
transformers for the south-western part of the
country. The bid was unusally low for the contract in
question considering the other bids we had gone
through. The tenders board then invited them for an
appraisal of their bid. After the appraisal, we the
five members of the tenders board agreed to recommend
them for the award of the contract only if they
increase their bid to USD60M. The balance USD13.2M was
to be paid to us (the members of the tenders
board)after the execution of the contract for us. Not
trusting the contractors to live up to their own part
of the bargain, we established the above mentioned
company and had them sub-contract the USD13.2M to the
company as a sub-contract. The deed of sub-contract
was perfected by a notary public and copies circulated
to the FMP&S and the central bank of Nigeria (CBN).
Arab contractors have executed the whole contract and
have been paid off, leaving the balance USD13.2M.
Considering the amount of the fund involved we cannot
ask the CBN to pay directly into our local bank
account as the bank regulatory bodies will want to
know the directors of the company. Though I am
retired, my other four partners are still in
I have therefore been mandated as a matter of trust by
my partners to source for a business partner to whom
we could transfer the sum of USD13.2M by drawing up a
letter of domiciliation instructing the concerned
government parastatals i.e the FMP&S and CBN to pay
into the partner's account the contractual entitlement
of USD13.2M. You will agree with me that a letter of
domiciliation is an accepted form of doing business
