Paternity scandal: FCMB MD, Adam Nuru Embarks On Mandatory Leave As Investigation Begins

Embattled Managing director of First City Monument Bank (FCMB), Adam Nuru, has embarked on a mandatory leave amid allegations of marital infidelity involving him and a former staff of the bank, Moyo Lawal.

It was gathered that Moyo’s estranged husband, Tunde Thomas, 45, died on December 16, 2020 from heart attack after battling with depression upon discovering that the two children from their marriage were allegedly fathered by the FCMB boss.

According to report by the deceased’s friends, Moyo had resigned from FCMB and travelled to the US with the two children, and thereafter informed Tunde that he was not the biological father of the children.

Mr Nuru, according to a report that emerged on social media, has been dating the wife of Mr. Thomas for good 8years.

Over 2000 people had signed a petition to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), calling for the sack of Mr Nuru.

On Saturday, January 2, 2021, the bank released a statement saying its Board of Directors had commenced an investigation into the matter.

In a statement released by the bank on Tuesday, Mr Nuru has been sent on leave to enable the bank to investigate the paternity allegations against him.

The statement read,

“We are aware of several stories circulating across several media platforms about our bank’s Managing Director, Adam Nuru; a former employee, Mrs 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 this code of ethics.
“This is already under way. During the period of the review, the managing director has volunteered to proceed on leave. This will guarantee the sanctity of the review process.
“We enjoin all our stakeholders to bear with us as we conduct this review and to please respect the various families involved.”

Also, in an internal mail sent to all workers on same Tuesday January 5, Nuru announced his plans to embark on leave immediately to allow the board to carry out an independent review of the circumstances surrounding the reports.
