A Hilltown man has inherited $14,0000,0000 after he found out by email that his long-lost Nigerian uncle, Rev Father August Goodluck had died.
The lucky man told Newry Spud:
“I was on my way to the pub. So I get there like and my phone beeped and I looked at it and this fella had emailed me to say that my long-long Nigerian uncle had died, leaving me $14,0000,0000 which was nice. All I had to do was provide my bank details so they can do the transfer.”
Rev Father August Goodluck, a diplomat by profession, died earlier this month in a car crash. The Hilltown man was unaware that he was related to such a wealthy uncle.
“To be honest, I’d never heard of him but I’m happy to take the money.”
It is thought he is still waiting for his inherited money.
