Adam Nuru, managing director of First City Monument Bank (FCMB), has opted to go on leave amid the allegation of marital infidelity.
Sources said that a panel is currently probing the allegation against Nuru, who has been accused of having an affair with 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.
It understands that the bank will issue a statement on the situation on Wednesday (today)
