Over 1,000 people have so far signed a petition to compel the Central Bank of Nigeria and the board of FCMB sack its adulterous managing director, Adam Nuru.
Adam Nuru, reportedly fathered the two children of a married woman, working with him at FCMB.
The woman, Moyo Thomas, nee Ojo, confessed her extra-marital affairs to her husband Tunde Thomas, after she escaped to the U.S, where she is now seeking asylum.
The shattered husband, who all along believed that the two kids of the marriage belonged to him, died of depression and heart attack on 16 December, some days before introducing another woman to his family.
A group that has sprung up, Justice for Tunde Thomas, is spearheading the campaign to get Nuru dismissed.
It has also given FCMB two weeks to sack Nuru, on ethical grounds, for being mired in marriage and paternity scandals.
Here is the petition posted on change.org:
Justice for Tunde Thomas started this petition to Godwin Emefiele and 3 others
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.
Akure-based human rights lawyer, Bolanle Cole, is also waging a campaign of his own to compel the CBN and FCMB sack Nuru.
In a Twitter thread on Friday, Cole called out Nuru and lampooned the FCMB for allowing the ‘unprofessional romance’ to happen.
Cole gave the bank two weeks from 30 December to sack Nuru or else witness a campaign of boycott by customers.
“We use this medium to call on FCMB to separate and detach its brand from this evil man, Adam Nuru, immediately”, Cole wrote.
“If this notice is ignored and Adam Nuru is at his desk in another two weeks from 30th December 2020, we will be left with no option than to vehemently call the attention of the public to the abysmal lack of ethics in the organization and to advise the members of the public to withdraw their funds and banking business from FCMB”.
Now read the full thread:
Tunde Thomas (alias Tunde Gentle), 45, died about two weeks ago from heartbreak. The two kids from his marriage were indeed fathered by a man without scruples or conscience, the current MD of FCMB, Adam Nuru who was his wife’s boss (MD) in FCMB. Tunde’s wife, Moyo Thomas
(Nee Ojo), a useless an unconscionable adulterer was engaged in an office romance with her MD, a relationship that was well known throughout the organization as the lack of shame and decorum in both lovebirds made them to get carried away and to throw caution to the wind.
FCMB, an organization without proper rules or governance looked the other way while the open and unprofessional romance was going on between the MD and a subordinate staff of the same organization, a married woman.
The MD, Adam Nuru, who was supposed to be the chief Governance Officer and Chief Image Maker of FCMB spared no thought for the husband of this lady who was bringing up his (Nuru’s) two children while thinking they were his.
He also did not think of the organization he was leading while engaging in this foul conduct, the scandal with which no ethical organization would want to be associated.
Tunde was so in love with & attached to his wife & children that he spent most of his resources on them. He took them to London & Dubai on holidays. He also spared no penny in putting them in the best schools
At the height of the shameful relationship and when the older child was about eight (8) years old, the lady 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 easy-going disposition.
Her aim was to get the Green Card and to also get Tunde to be barred from entering the US, so she would not have to confront him to look him in the eye and tell him to his face the evil that she had done to him.
Within a few months of hearing this news, Tunde suffered a stroke at about the age of 42. He recovered from the stroke but became a shadow of his former self. He would often shed tears from the blues.
Recently, he tried to pick up the pieces of his life and started another relationship with a lawyer lady. Tunde had invited some friends to accompany him to visit the lady’s parents on 26th December.
They were planning the materials to take along for the visit but alas, it was not to be. Tunde got home from work in the night of 15th December only to collapse by his staircase and die immediately.
Autopsy report puts the cause of death as heart failure.
The wicked souls, Adam Nuru and Moyo Ojo (later Moyo Thomas) have done their worst, the death of an innocent man, and their hands are dripping with his blood. God will demand it of them.
In the meantime, the family and friends of Tunde Thomas (alias Tunde Gentle) hereby wish to bring this shameful conduct to the knowledge of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), the board and management of FCMB and to members of the public.
“We use this medium to call on FCMB to separate and detach its brand from this evil man, Adam Nuru, immediately. If this notice is ignored and Adam Nuru is at his desk in another two weeks from 30th December 2020, we will be left with no option than to vehemently call the attention of the public to the abysmal lack of ethics in the organization and to advise the members of the public to withdraw their funds and banking business from FCMB.”
A word is enough for the wise.
N:B Tunde Gentle was buried 30th December 2020.
He had worked in Oceanic Bank back in the days. He was one of the most gentle and yet, most friendly of all individuals, as many would testify of him.
He died as an Executive Director in an asset management company, GDL Asset Management Company Ltd.
He was survived by an aged mother and siblings.
May his truly gentle soul rest in perfect peace.

FCTA Takes Steps To Tackle Climate Change, Institute Best Environmentally Friendly Area Council
As part of measures to support the actualization of President Muhammadu Buhari’s pledge that Nigeria will within a 10 year period plant 25 million trees to mitigate the effects of climate change and enhance the country’s carbon sink, the FCT Administration has announced the institution of an annual award to select the best environmentally friendly area council in the territory.
FCT Minister of State, Dr. Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu, made this known on the occasion of the 2021 tree planting campaign and flag off of the distribution of tree seedlings to area councils, communities and schools in the FCT held in Kuje Junior Secondary School, Abuja.
The minister also added that the administration has sustained the tree planting campaign with the planting of over 12,000 trees across the six area councils annually as part of efforts by the FCT Administration to reclaim lost trees and forests as well as keep the existing forest landscapes intact, stressing that this campaign also helps in raising the level of public awareness on the importance of engaging individual and collective actions to boost tree planting activities in the nation’s capital.
Aliyu, who described the theme: “Forest Restoration: A Path to Recovery and Well-being” as apt, however, stressed that the theme sets an agenda for countries to demonstrate practical commitments to the safety of the environment by engaging in actions that would address issues of land degradation, desertification and effective management of the ecosystem towards the restoration of forest resources and mitigating the effect of climate change.
While calling on developers to make adequate provisions to accommodate trees, she used the occasion to remind residents that it is against the law to cut down trees without recourse to the relevant extant environmental laws or to agencies of the FCT Administration.
The minister said: “you will recall that in 2019, President Muhammadu Buhari, at the Climate Action Summit organized by the United Nations, pledged that Nigeria will within a 10 years period plant 25 million trees to mitigate the effects of climate change and enhance the country’s carbon sink.
” To support the actualization of this pledge, I would like to announce the institution of an annual award to select the best environmentally friendly area council in the FCT. The seedlings that will be distributed today on this occasion is symbolic. It is expected that the area councils will play their part by organising tree planting exercises in their various domains towards meeting this target”.
The minister revealed that as part of steps to protect the forests, the administration has begun the process of training and empowering the FCT Forest Guards to enable them effectively carry out surveillance activities to prevent further damage to the environment in the territory.
Earlier in his remarks, the Ag. Secretary Agriculture and Rural Development Secretariat, Mr. Ibe Prospect, noted that the global community is facing growing challenges of climate change, while adding that harmful agricultural practices and developmental activities are known to have largely contributed to the destruction of billions of trees around the globe.
Ibe said that the Agriculture and Rural Development Secretariat has intensified public enlightenment campaign in all the area councils, ensuring that relevant stakeholders such as the area council authorities, traditional institutions, estate developers and students are carried along to engage in practical activities towards tree planting and forest restoration.
The highpoint of the event was the distribution of tree seedlings to stakeholders and planting of trees by the FCT Minister of State, area council chairmen, traditional rulers, and notable actors in the entertainment industry.
