Paternity scandal: Campaigners for late Thomas close case

Friends of late Tunde Thomas, whose wife Moyo was allegedly impregnated twice by Adam Nuru, the suspended managing director of First City Monument Bank (FCMB) said they have closed the campaign, with objective achieved.

The friends, who came together as Justice for Tunde Thomas, mounted a campaign for signatures in a petition addressed to the Central Bank of Nigeria and FCMB board.

The campaign, which gained traction in the social media, attracted over 2,900 signatures.

On Thursday, the group said it is moving on, having achieved its objective, with FCMB board asking Adam Nuru to step aside as it probes the matter.

“The forced exit of Adam Nuru from FCMB bank and the immediate appointment of another MD is the least and we have achieved that”, said the group, whose arrow head is Akure lawyer, Bolanle Cole.

“What a way to end a career for Adam Nuru and this is just the beginning for him.

“The action by FCMB should bring closure to this case and it will always be a landmark reference”, a spokesman for the group wrote.

Here is the statement by the group:

On behalf of friends , associates , family etc of our beloved Late brother Tunde “Gentle “ Thomas, I wish to sincerely thank each and everyone of you.

With this little pressure supported by all you , we hope to put an end to even the tiniest of injustice and this outcome will surely serve as a deterrent to people in places of influence who think they can do whatever and get away with it.

The forced exit of Adam Nuru from FCMB bank and the immediate appointment of another MD is the least and we have achieved that. What a way to end a career for Adam Nuru and this is just the beginning for him. The action by FCMB should bring closure to this case and it will always be a landmark reference.

I am happy to have championed this with no ulterior motive whatsoever, the only reason I championed was to prove to a Nigerian in diaspora as he was of the opinion that nothing whatsoever will happen to Adam Nuru. In his words “ no be Nigeria , nothing go happen “.

At least, he knows Nigeria can work once we set our mind to it .

May the soul of our friend Tunde Thomas rest in perfect peace . Thank you all.”
