Embattled FCMB Boss Adam Nuhu goes on leave amid paternity fraud scandal investigation

Adam Nuru, managing director of First City Monument Bank (FCMB), has gone on leave amid the ongoing investigation into allegations of marital infidelity.

Reports have it that a panel is currently probing the allegation against Nuru, who has been accused of having had an affair with Moyo Thomas, a former official of the bank, who is married.

According to reports, Moyo had reportedly left Tunde, her husband, and travelled to the United States with her two kids, later informing him that the children were not his, but Nuru’s.

Tunde reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest and died on December 16, 2020.

The banks decision to probe Mr Nuru comes on the backdrop of a petition on change.org which has over 2000 signatures,the petition to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), called for his sack as well as threats to boycott FCMB.

The petitioners had alleged that the bank chieftain was responsible for the demise of Tunde.

They claimed that Tunde was down with a stroke but later recovered and thereafter met another lady whom he planned to marry.

He was, however, said to have died two days before his introduction to his already pregnant girlfriend.

“This is a case of gross misconduct based on ethical grounds and unjustifiable economic oppression by the elites (Adam Nuru) against the less privileged in the society,” it read.

“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 of this unethical conduct by the current MD of FCMB Bank Adam Nuru.
