Nuru, managing director of First City Monument Bank (FCMB), has opted to go on leave amid the allegation of marital infidelity, according to TheCable.
Sources said a panel is currently probing the allegation against Nuru, who has been accused of having an affair with Moyo Thomas, a former official of the bank, who is married.
“The managing director volunteered to proceed on leave pending the outcome of the investigation of this scandal,” the source said.
“Although it is a personal matter, the issue has gone really far and many allegations were made.”
Over 1,000 people had signed a petition to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), calling for the sack of Nuru.
The bank is likely to issue a statement on the situation on Wednesday. (TheCable)
