Wife of the embattled FCMB MD, Mrs. Hauwa Adam Nuru, has denied reports of seeking to divorce her husband following the lingering paternity fraud scandal.
Reports had surfaced on the rumour mill online that Hauwa Nuru had decided to divorce her husband following the allegations.
Mr. Nuru, Managing Director of First City Monument Bank, caused serious controversy in December over allegations that he had an illicit affair with a former staff of his organization, Moyo Thomas, and fathered her two children while she was still married to her husband, Tunde Thomas.
It was alleged that Mr. Thomas died in December from the shock upon discovering that his two children were not actually his, but belonged to the FCMB MD.

However, in a statement released on Saturday, Mrs. Nuru, said the report which circulated online was an attempt to further demonise her ‘beloved husband and a loving father.”
Part of the statement read: “I want to clarify for the avoidance of doubt that I am still very much with my husband.”
She added that she has never thought of leaving her husband because there are no grounds on which to do so.
FCMB in reaction to the allegations against Mr Nuru revealed that the Bank’s board of directors have begun an investigation of the allegation which it termed unethical.
