All you need to do is go to the Registrar of the bank or organization whose shares you own.

They'll give you an Indemnity Form to fill. You have to take this Indemnity form, get a Police Report or a sworn affidavit and one passport photograph of the person who owns the shares. Go to any branch of Guaranty Trust Bank Plc around you.

Ask for the Bancassurance Associate there and you'll be given a Shares Indemnity certificate. With that, your Shares Certificate will be replaced and you can get your dividends.

Just go to the registrar. They will give you an indemnity form to fill and issue another certificate to cover the lost one. The big deal is having to go to teh registrar. If you have a broker, that should help. Note however that it may take sometime.

tell your mum to give the companies head office a call and they will pass you on to their registrar,speak with them because they have all the details registered on their system,so they can issue out another one to her.

Guess ur mom does not have a broker. Identify the Registrars to the company and get across to them.

simple, u get back to your broker with your proof of purchase, in case, u've lost that too, you mandate them to go the Registrars to look for your duplicates etc
