    My father has once own Dangote which he has paid him some amount in kind and the remaining which according to him was not settle legitimately in Islam. And he is worried about his judgement with God after he depart that we as children might find it difficult to settle it since he has no any evidence to show an outstanding balance after court ruling because neither a company receipt nor court ruling documents was found to show the balance.
