FCMB’s management has broken its silence on the suspected affair between its Managing Director, Adam Nuru, and one of its former employees known as Moyo Thomas.
One Mr Tunde Thomas (aka Tunde Gentle) was lawfully married to Moyo Thomas, and it was widely accepted that Mr Tunde’s two children were born in marriage.
But the news emerged that the FCMB MD reportedly had an affair with Mrs. Thomas, and that the children belonged to the MD bank.
It was recorded that Moyo had told her husband that she was leaving Nigeria for the United States with the children only to tell him on arrival that the children were not his, but for the FCMB MD.
The news prompted Mr. Thomas to be killed with a stroke and then with a heart arrest.
Since then, the thesis has provoked reactions and raised questions about paternity fraud in Nigeria.
Following the disagreement, FCMB announced in an official release that the Board of Directors of the Bank had started an enquiry into the accusation that it had described as unethical.
It said that, while the matter remains a personal one, the tragedy of the death of Mr Tunde Thomas and the charges of unethical behaviour compel the Bank’s Board to examine what has transpired.
“We are aware of several stories circulating across several media platforms about our Managing Director Adam Nuru, a former employee Ms Moyo Thomas and her deceased husband, Mr Tunde Thomas.
“ While this is a personal matter, the tragedy of the death of Mr Tunde Thomas and the allegations of unethical conduct, require the Bank’s board to conduct a review of what transpired, any violations of our code of ethics and the adequacy of these code of conduct ethics
“ This will be done immediately,” the statement read.
The bank appealed to stakeholders to be patient with them as they conduct this review.
