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.
