The death of an ex-member of staff of FCMB, Tunde Thomas, is currently being laid at the doorstep of the bank MD/CEO, Adamu Nuru.
Late Thomas, aka Tunde Gentle, died about two weeks ago at the age of 45 allegedly from heart attack, which according to a petition from persons believed to be close to him accrued from the heartbreak he suffered on the back of his marriage breakup with his wife, Moyo Thomas (nee Ojo), also a FCMB staff member.
The petitioners in the letter to the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, wherein they called for the sack of Nuru as FCMB MD alleged him of being the chief architect of the couple’s breakup and the death of the deceased.
They accused him of having office romance with Mrs Thomas to the point that under the pretext of travelling to United States with the children for holiday she sought and got asylum on abusive husband grounds and went on to tell him their two children (the eldest then 8 years old) were fathered by Nuru.
The disclosure was said to have cost the deceased his health and allegedly had stroke.
The account said he was in the process of full recovery having found a new love in a lawyer fiancée when he slumped and died.
Here is the petition posted on change.org:

Tunde Thomas died recently like about a week or 2 from Depression. Apparently, kids from his marriage to Moyo Thomas belongs to wife’s boss (Adam Nuru, the current MD of FCMB). Moyo Thomas left Tunde to go to America with the kids, she told him kids were not his when she got to America. He was later down with stroke but recovered.
Apparently, Tunde met someone else he was going to remarry but apparently didn’t recover from the first Marriage issues. Tunde was just made director for the MFB he works for. Got back from work last week and had a cardiac arrest 2 days before introduction to pregnant new girlfriend.
This is a case of gross misconduct based on ethical grounds and an unjustifiable economic oppression by the elites (Adam Nuru) against the less privileged in the society. 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 to this unethical conduct by the current MD of FCMB Bank Adam Nuru.
