First of all, the most important question is: Is he/she listed as a next of kin on any of his/her parents bank accounts?

If no, he/she should forget the money, if yes, proceed with these to the bank:

-Parents Death certificate
-Letter to the bank manager stating your order that his/her parents funds be transferred to him/her
-Valid identification of yourself

U need to be the beneficiary to the accounts. Secondly u will need to process and provide the letter of administration which can take up to 6 months or more.

No issues about consent of siblings/children.

first,i dont know your location,but whatever location you are,you have to go to the high court, pay a fee for such intention. The workers might choose to guide or assist,but never free. It takes time,to file,time for the state to do publication in case of any conflict from other parties from maybe parents had/have other kids etc. The initial document that is mandatory is their death certificate. Lawyer might not bcompulsory,but using qualified ones that are knowledgable in the processing will help save time. Let him/her visit their state high court for more information.

- He will need a letter of administration from the High court if His parents died without a will, and the process is quite lengthy and tough to conclude, and handled from the Probate Registry.

- He would also require the services of a Legal personnel who will assist in running the entire cycle which will include court fees, sureties etc.

I am currently running something related to that in The Probate Registry of Lagos High court, Igbosere road, and You may PM if you need further guidance on contact(s).

my brother, same thing applies to me. My dad has accounts with ECO,UBA and Union bank. Dont waste your time processing the money. corruption has eaten deep into Nigeria more than how we are seeing it. The banks will not be happy if anyone shows up to claim an account that the owner has died. even when you get to the court, they will still probe you especially in monetary terms e.g if you want it processed btw a month- 50k.... 6 months -25k. They will frustrate your life in the bank also. you will walk and walk under the hot sun. they can even ask you to go and dig your dad's grave and bring his thumbprint..... at the end of the day, you would be persuaded to leave the money to GOD. No ordinary Citizen can withdraw from such account. you have got to have some connections BRO.! And to make matters worse, i heard in the news last Month that the federal Government will soon start to gather All the money in Inactive accounts in all banks!

just forget about it
