The number of persons that have signed an online petition demanding for the sack of the Managing Director of First City Monument Bank (FCMB), Mr Adamu Nuru has now reached 2,311 and counting over his alleged illicit affair with a former worker of the bank, Moyo Thomas.
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.
Friends of Tunde Thomas had petitioned the CBN alleging that he died of depression after discovering that his supposed two children with Moyo belong to the FCMB MD.
From the petition, it was claimed that the deceased husband suffered a cardiac arrest before he died.
The FCMB Board of Directors had said it was reviewing allegations of unethical conduct against its MD, Adamu Nuru.
It petitioners called on the CBN to take decisive actions against Nuru.
“This is a case of gross misconduct based on ethical grounds and an unjustifiable economic oppression by the elite (Adam Nuru) against the underprivileged in the society.” The petition said.
“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.”
Late Tunde Thomas Spent His Final Days Alone At Home In His Last Days
A friend of late Tunde Thomas has narrated the last moments he shared with him, before his demise following alleged heartbreak caused by his ex-wife’s infidelity involving Mr Adamu Nuru of FCMB.
The anonymous person, who wrote on Twitter using @Fada_Flo, stated that Thomas was indeed depressed and alone in his last days.
The friend, who is a real estate company officer, narrated that he had gone to inspect the house in which Thomas lived in Magodo and was surprised that he was alone at home and lying on the bed.
He said, “No one is as shocked at this #FCMB issue as I am. Tunde Thomas lived in one of the properties the company I work for manages in Magodo. I saw him two weeks prior to his death, he looked depressed then but he told me he had just woken up. I noticed that he was alone in the house.
“His children’s bedroom looked like it hadn’t been occupied in a while, I assumed that they were abroad with his wife, Moyosore. I went to inspect the property to know if it was in a good state and Mr. Tunde just laid on his bed throughout the inspection and told me to let him know when I was done.
“I later heard rumors he and his wife had issues and that he had even done introduction (an event that is organized for families of partners planning marriage to know each other) with a new woman, only for me to hear that he slumped and died two weeks later. Omo! This life ehn e no balance at all.”
