First City Monument Bank (FCMB) has said it is looking into sexual allegations against its Managing Director, Adam Nuru.
Mr Nuru is accused of being romantically involved with a married woman, Moyo Thomas, who was working with him at FCMB. The secret relationship is said to produce two kids.
Moyo Thomas reportedly ran to the United States to seek asylum along with the two kids. She told the US authorities her husband Tunde Thomas was abusive and that she feared for her life.
On reaching there, she allegedly opened up on the extra-marital affairs to her husband Tunde Thomas, resulting in him being depressed and down with stroke. He reportedly died of cardiac arrest on December 16.
Reacting, FCMB said “We are aware of several stories circulating across several media platforms about our bank’s Managing Director, Adam Nuru, a former employee Ms Moyo Thomas and her deceased ex-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.
“Our Board of Directors are reviewing all aspects of this report and once they are done with their review, we will revert to you,” said Diran Olojo, FCMB Group Head, Corporate Affairs.
However, some Nigerians on social media have taken to the micro-blogging platform to express themselves concerning the matter.

“FCMB, an organization without proper rules or governance looked the other way while the open and unprofessional romance was going on between the MD and a subordinate staff of the same organization, a married woman. The MD, Adam Nuru, who was supposed to be the chief.”

That being said. @BolanleCole saying “FCMB is an organization without proper rules or governance” is just a misguided hate speech, leave the bank out of it.”

Corporate Governance, Risk Management and Internal Control etc are all duties of the Executive Management which Adam Nuru is one.”

However, the lesson won’t be complete without hearing from Adam Nuru & Moyo. I really need to know what prompted such evil. Meanwhile, how much is DNA Test?”
