Whoever she used as her next of kin has a right to the account. S/he will need:
Affidavit of next of kin
Death certificate
Letter of administration by court.
Newspaper publication about what you are about to do.

Whoever she used as the next of kin will have access.
The person will get the necessary document like death certificate and obituary poster, letter of administration from court.
An estate account will now be opened where the deceased money will be transferred to. The next of kin can then access the estate account.
Let the next of kin approach the bank.

Get her ATM card if you know her PIN.

Certain amounts can't be withdrawn over the ATM, he will surely get stuck and the bank will still know.

How come you know that she has some money in her account

Does she work and if she works, who is her next of kin

Does she trades or do business, if yes which bank does she operate with

Have you searched her apartment to see any bank books in her house

Did she by any means told you about her financial strength

Well when you get to her bank, first of all, they will check who her next of kin is and will direct you to federal High Court for a letter of administrator

Bear in mind that after all this struggle, if you are nit the next of kin, kobo will not be released to you

So get to know who the next of kin is and join hand with the person
