Adam Nuru ‘flees’ FCMB in guise of leave as bank probes paternity allegation

Managing director of First City Monument Bank (FCMB), Adam Nuru, has gone on leave amidst the allegation of marital infidelity.

According to reports, a panel is said to be 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.

Kemi Filani News recalls Moyo had informed Tunde, their children were not his, but Nuru’s. after leaving him and travelling to the United States. Tunde reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest and died on December 16, 2020.

Over 1,000 people had signed a petition to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), requesting for the sack of Nuru.
The petitioners had claimed that the bank chieftain was responsible for the demise of Tunde. They also claimed that Tunde was down with a stroke but later recovered and thereafter met another lady whom he planned to marry. 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.”


TheCable understands that the bank will issue a statement on the situation on Wednesday.
