A close member of the family of the FCMB manager who committed suicide said he could not have killed himself because he owed the bank money.
A close family member who spoke to Pulse on the condition of anonymity said , the N350 million debt that was hanging on his neck could not have been the cause of the suicide because the family has enough property and houses both in Nigeria and in Europe, that they could have sold and paid back the debt.
"Olisa was depressed all right but I can tell you that the N350 million loan debt that people are saying could have led him to commit suicide is far from the truth.
Those who know the Nwakoby family will know that they are very rich with choice properties in Lekki, Ikoyi, Victoria Island and in Europe.
Something must have triggered the suicide and not the money because the family had been making plans to sell one or two houses to raise the money to pay back the loan."
"In fact, one of his brothers could bring out the money without stress, so that could not have been the reason Olisa killed himself. There is more than meets the eyes," the family member concluded.
