Following the involvement of it’s Managing director in a paternity scandal that led to the death of a 45-year-old man, First City Monument Bank (FCMB) Board of directors have launched an investigation into what transpired.

The deceased, Tunde Thomas (alias Tunde Gentle), 45, died about two weeks ago from heartbreak. The two kids from his marriage were fathered by the current MD of FCMB, Adam Nuru who was his wife’s boss (MD) in FCMB. Tunde’s wife, Moyo Thomas was engaged in an office romance with her MD.

Tunde  spent most of his resources on his children. He took them to London and Dubai on holidays. He also spared no penny in putting them in the best schools.

However, when the older child was about eight (8) years old, Moyo suddenly resigned from FCMB and travelled to the US with the two children, ostensibly on holiday. It was when the school session started in Nigeria and the children were not returned that Tunde started asking questions and the lady finally summoned the courage to tell him the children were not his own.

Moyo filed for asylum in the US on the ground of marital violence in Nigeria, against a man known to all men by his gentle and easygoing disposition. Her aim was to get the Green Card and to also get Tunde to be barred from entering the US.

Within a few months of hearing this news, Tunde suffered a stroke at about the age of 42. He recovered from the stroke but became a shadow of his former self. Recently, he tried to pick up the pieces of his life and started another relationship with another lady. Tunde got home from work in the night of 15th December only to collapse by his staircase and die immediately. The cause of death was reported as heart failure.
FCMB in a statement via twitter said;
“We are aware of several stories circulating across several media platforms about our 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 these 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.
Thank you.”
