The Managing Director of First city Monument Bank FCMB, Adams Nuhu has been called out over alleged infidelity with a former worker with the bank, Moyo Thomas, which led to the death of Moyo’s estranged husband identified as Tunde Thomas.
However, Thousands of Nigerians demand the sacking of Adams Nuhu. The petition is requesting the Central Bank of Nigeria and the FCMB board to dismiss Nuru on ethical grounds.
It came on the heels of the death of Moyo’s estranged husband, Tunde Thomas, who reportedly died of depression about two weeks ago after Moyo reportedly told him some months ago that her two kids were fathered by Nuru.
Moyo had reportedly left Tunde and travelled to the United States with the kids, informing him that the children were not his when she got to the US. Tunde was said to have been down with stroke but later recovered.
It was gathered that Tunde tried to put the matter behind and decided to remarry. He reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest and died two days to the introduction with his new girlfriend.
The petition which had been signed by 1,927 persons as at 11pm and was posted on an online platform called ‘change.org’ read:
“This is a case of gross misconduct based on ethical grounds and an unjustifiable economic oppression by the elites (Adam Nuru) against the less privileged (sic) in the society. The MD has been doing everything possible to sweep this case under the carpet.
“We implore the Central Bank of Nigeria as the apex regulator and the board of FCMB to investigate this for the integrity of the bank and Nigerian banking industry. This is a case too many, while I agree that this is not the full story, the barest minimum will be an investigation to this unethical conduct by the current MD of FCMB, Bank Adam Nuru.”
Reacting to this reports, the bank in a statement said:
“We are aware of several stories circulating across several media platforms about our bank’s 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 this code of conduct ethics. This will be done immediately. We enjoin all our stakeholders to bear with us as we conduct this review and to please respect the various families involved.”
