Adam Nuru, the current managing director of First City Monument Bank is trending because of a paternity scandal spreading through the Internet like wild fire.
According to a Twitter user, Bolanle Cole with the Twitter handle TD Cole Esq, Adam Nuru had an affair with a married woman and fathered two of her children.
This discovery allegedly led to the death of the woman’s husband, Tunde Thomas alias Tunde Gentle. He was 45 years old when he died and has been buried.
Nigerians on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram are dragging the woman in the eye of the storm as well as her lover Adam Nuru. Many have signed the petition for Adam Nuru to be sacked as the MD of FCMB.

“Tunde Thomas (alias Tunde Gentle), 45 died about two weeks ago from heartbreak. The two kids from his marriage were discovered to have been fathered by the current MD of FCMB, Adam Nuru who was his wife’s boss.
Tunde’s wife, Moyo Thomas (Nee Ojo), was reportedly engaged in an office romance with her MD, a relationship that was well known to all in the bank.
Happily married Billionaire, FCMB CEO Adam Nuru, while he got carried away in fornicating with Moyo, spared no thought for Tunde who was bringing up the two children he thought belonged to him.
Those who know Tunde said was so in love with and attached to his wife and children that he spent most of his resources on them. He took them to London and Dubai on holidays. He also spared no penny in putting the kids in the best schools.
At the height of the shameful relationship and 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 shameless courage to tell him the children were not his own.
She then went to the extent of filing 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, we learnt, was to get the Green Card and also get Tunde barred from entering the US, so she would not be able to look him in the eye and tell him the bitter truth.
Not long after receiving the sad news first in 2017, Tunde Thomas reportedly suffered stroke. He recovered from the stroke but said to have become a shadow of his former self, as he would often cry without reason.
As he got over the illness, Tunde Thomas was said to have tried to pick up the pieces of his life. He reportedly started another relationship with a lady lawyer.
Soon, he invited some friends to accompany him to visit the lady’s parents on 26th December.
However, Tunde was said to have got home from work in the night of 15th December 2020 and collapsed at his residence’s staircase. He died instantly. Autopsy report puts the cause of his death as ‘heart failure’.
Tunde Thomas, a former staff of the defunct Oceanic Bank, was buried on Wednesday, 30th of December 2020.”
Tunde Thomas was the man whose wife allegedly cheated on with her boss Adam Nuru. He fathered their two children.
According to reports, First City Monument Bank is currently reviewing allegations of unethical conduct against its Managing Director, Adam Nuru.
Nuru is at the centre of a marriage scandal involving Moyo Thomas, a former employee of the bank, and her late husband, Tunde Thomas.
A petition initiated by friends of the deceased, recently alleged that Tunde died of depression after discovering that his supposed two children with Moyo belong to the FCMB MD.
It also called on the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to sack Nuru, while demanding a comprehensive investigation into the matter.
“This is a case of gross misconduct based on ethical grounds and an unjustifiable economic oppression by the elite (Adam Nuru) against the underprivileged in the society,” the petition, which has already garnered over 700 signatures, reads.
“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.”
The bank statement read:
“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.”
