The African scammers love to play the part of Doctors or Pastors, hoping their victims will consider them more honest and believable, the irony is, why would a Doctor or Pastor be working for a bank, why would they be contacting a stranger out of the blue and why wouldn't they collect this money themselves if it actually existed.

The answer to all of those questions is because its a scam, please dont fall for it, delete and ignore is your best option here
