Since the news broke on social media on Friday, January 1, 2020, the Managing Director of the bank, Adam Nuru has been at the centre of the scandal.

Nuru’s alleged affair with a former employee of the bank, Moyo reportedly produced two kids.

After realising that the two children he thought belonged to him were fathered by his wife’s boss, Tunde suffered a stroke and later died from cardiac arrest and depression on December 16, 2020.

According to the petition against Moyo and Nuru, Tunde’s wife allegedly informed her husband that she was leaving Nigeria for the United States with the kids, only to call him upon arrival that the children did not belong to him.

Reacting to the scandal, the FCMB Group Head, Corporate Affairs, Diran Olojo in a statement said the bank is aware of the allegations against the MD.

He added that the bank’s board of directors had started reviewing the matter and that its findings would be disclosed in due course.

This will be done immediately.
