Plot 802 Constitution Avenue,Central District,PMB 535, GarkiAbuja Nigeria.
*RE:IMMEDIATE PAYMENT ORDER.*
I am JUSTICE EMMANUEL AYOOLA, Chairman,Independent Corrupt Practices
and othercrimes Commission (ICPC) of Nigeria,
It is with dismay that I have noticed what is happening in foreign
contract payment that almost all the privilege and opportunity given
to some Government Officials who are responsible for the payment of
Foreign contractors have been turned to dupe and swindle money from
these contractors. Also, I am very much aware that most of you have
paid so much money that you don't even have money to take care of
yourself,families and run your day to day business. With these
developments I have informed the president about it and to be candid
he is not a happy man. Due to these reports received by the presidency
alleging predominant cases of illegal extortion of money from foreign
Contractors by irresponsible Nigeria officials. The presidency is
highly disturbed and embarrassed by the activities of these
irresponsible officials and wondered why these officials are
sabotaging all the effort of the present administration by frustrating
the payment of the approved contract beneficiaries.
However, he had instructed me to contact all the approved contract
beneficiaries that your contract payment file is now with the Deputy
Governor of the CBN,
Deputy Governor: Alhaji Suleiman Barau
You are hereby directed to discontinue immediately every communication
with anybody,institution, agencies and banks *EXCEPT * through the
Deputy Governor of the CBN who has been mandated to wire immediately
without any further delay all the approved contract payment, to enable
the President have a good understanding of what is happening. *BE
INFORMED ALSO THAT WE ARE AWARE THAT SOME OFTHESE CORRUPT OFFICIALS
HAD MADE SOME FOREIGN CONTRACTORS TO BELIEVE THAT YOUR FUND IS IN ONE
FOREIGN ACCOUNT WAITING YOUR COMPLETION OFFEES.ALL THESE ARE FALSE. NO
FUND LEFT NIGERIA. SOME WHO AREIMPERSONATING TELEX DEPT STAFFS SAID
THEY HAVE RAN AWAY FROM NIGERIAAFTER TRANSFERING YOUR FUND PLEASE YOU
ARE ADVISED NOT TO LISTEN TO SUCHFALSEHOOD.*
Based on the fore-going, the President has.personally given his
approval and endorsement for the immediate release of your outstanding
contract payment which has been long overdue based on the fact that
the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Federal Ministry of Finance
(FMF),Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and off-shore
correspondence Banks used such illegally from contractors fortheir
private purses instead of only the official fees as directed bythe
The president therefore instructed me to withdraw every instruction
and authority given to every ministry including the Central Bank of
Nigeria,Federal Ministry of Finance, Nigerian National Petroleum
Corporation. All the powers given to them in the past has now been
cancelled. As the Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices
Commission, I want to assure you that your contract payment will be
released to you immediately without any further delay.
To receiveyour payment details, you should immediately contact the
Deputy Governorof CBN, Dr. Tunde Lemo only through hise-mail
address:.(*email@example.com)* You are to note that
the presidency has exempted you from all forms of charges,fees,
levies, taxes etc before your contract sum is wired once you have paid
the sum of US$280:00 being for payment release charges.
Alhaji Suleiman Barau is going to send you all the original documents
and certificates through an Insured.Diplomatic Courier Service so as
to back up your fund on arrival. To find out more about the Deputy
Governor, *You can visi tthe CBN website which is www.cenbank.org. If

mailingaddress immediately to the Deputy Governor, for him to arrange
for the mailing of all the documents to you. Due to security reasons
