First City Monument Bank (FCMB) will issue a statement on Wednesday, January 6, as Adam Nuru, its managing director opted to go on leave amid the allegation of marital infidelity leveled against him.
A panel is currently probing the allegation against Nuru, who has been accused of having an affair with Moyo Thomas, a former official of the bank, who is married.
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.
No fewer than 2,000 people had signed a petition to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), calling for the sack of Mr Nuru.
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.
“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,” the content of the petition indicate.
The bank will issue a statement on the situation on Wednesday. (Additional reports from The Cable)
