Adam Nuru’s suspended Managing Director of First City Monument Bank FCMB caught in the web of paternity fraud which allegedly produced two children with a former Staff of the Bank, Mrs Moyo Thomas, is facing another puzzle made complex by his legal wife known as Hauwa who has packed out from their matrimonial home and threatens to file a divorce suit against Mr. Nuru, source confirmed to 9news Nigeria.
Family source says Mrs Hauwa Adam Nuru has moved out from her matrimony and she is in talks with a lawyer to demand for formal divorce with Nuru on grounds of infidelity and dilapidation of their family common patrimony.
Inside source says Hauwa’s family is really backing her to give Nuru equal measure of embarrassment he put his wife and children to by having a mistress whom he produced children with and whose effect had led to the death of Tunde Thomas the legal husband of Nuru mistress.
Two weeks ago, the social media was awashed with allegations that Nuru had an affair with Mrs Moyo Thomas, a former FCMB staff, fathering two children with her.
Further reports alleged that, Moyo Thomas was moved to stay in the United States of America with her children, where she notified her husband Tunde Thomas that the two children she has are not his.
The resultant effect of his new status as defined by his wife led to acute depression which led to the demise of Tunde Thomas.
A petition signed by the deceased’s friends had claimed that Tunde died of depression after discovering that his supposed two children with Moyo were not his but Nuru’s.
They also called on the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to sack Nuru, while demanding a comprehensive investigation into the matter.
They claimed that Tunde suffered a stroke due to the experience but later recovered and thereafter met another lady whom he planned to marry.
Tunde was, however, said to have died two days before his relations and his fiancée’s family were scheduled to meet as is customary before marriages in Nigeria.
His fiancée was said to be pregnant at the time of his death.
“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 read.
“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.
“This is a case too many, while I agree that this is not the full story, the barest minimum will be an investigation of this unethical conduct by the current MD of FCMB Bank, Adam Nuru.”
To calm the nerves of the public who are concerned beyond Tunde Thomas’ family, Moyo recently broke her silence on the matter and denied allegations of paternity fraud levelled against her.
In her statement, she also denied ever telling her late husband that he was not the father of her children.
The statement read, “I write in reference to all the allegations and accusations that have recently been making the rounds on the internet and various social media platforms. I have refrained from responding to this matter for various reasons, one of which is to preserve the memories of Tunde who departed to be with his maker on December 16, 2020. Memories, not only to me, but to his children, who are still young, and to everybody who had a relationship with him.
“Just like any marriage, Tunde and I had a lot of differences in our marriage, some of which even led to police intervention. But I remain committed to keeping only positive memories of him. No one can ever understand what transpired between us or what each of us experienced in the marriage; like they say, it is he who wears the shoes that knows where it pinches. In all of it, I never for once wished him bad. His untimely and sudden death is still a shock to me as it is to many others.
“On no occasion did I ever tell him he was not the father of our two children. It is therefore deliberate falsehood and certainly malicious to allege and insinuate that I informed him that the children are not his. The children still bear his name. Only God knows why he died in an untimely period. It is not in my place, or anyone’s place to play God and talk with certainty as to the cause of his death, without proven medical facts.
“Despite our separation, we never allowed our differences to affect the relationships we respectively have with the children. He still had conversations with the children like any father will, up until his sudden and unfortunate death. It is quite sad and disheartening to see the pictures of these innocent children splashed all over the internet with very disparaging and weird comments.
“I do wish his family and friends the fortitude to bear the unfortunate loss and I ask that we all be allowed to grieve his loss in peace. He has now been laid to rest and we implore all and sundry to please respect our privacy and allow those grieving his loss, including the children and I, to do so in peace.”
While Mr Adam Nuru has been asked by the bank (FCMB) to proceed on compulsory leave to the financial institution carry out a comprehensive investigation on the allegations, an Acting MD has been appointed and the fraudulent paternity takes another turn as his wife packed out from his house and threatens divorce.
