“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.”

But in an interview on Saturday, the bank’s spokesman, Diran Olojo, said FCMB was reviewing the matter.

He said, ‘‘We are aware of several stories circulating across several media platforms about our bank’s Managing Director Adam Nuru, a former employee Ms. Moyo Thomas and her deceased husband, Mr. Tunde Thomas.
