Tunde Thomas (alias Tunde Gentle), 45, died about two weeks ago from heartbreak. The two kids from his marriage were discovered to have been fathered by the current MD of FCMB, Adam Nuru, who was his wife’s boss.
Moyo Thomas is Tunde’s wife. She was reportedly engaged in an office romance with her boss, the Managing Director of the bank. Many of the members of the staff knew about the affair.
The Managing Director of the bank, Adam Nuhu, is happily married. He got carried about with adultery. He was having an affair with his staff that he knew was also married.
Tunde was a gentleman. He was so caring and took care of the kids. He spent all his resources on these kids. He took them to London and Dubai on holidays. He also spared no penny in putting the kids in the best schools.
When the older child was about eight years old, Moyo suddenly resigned from FCMB and travelled to the US with the two children as planned by her boss on holiday.
It was when the school session started in Nigeria and the children were not returned that Tunde started asking questions and the lady finally summoned the shameless courage to tell him the children were not his own.
This shameful lady went to extent of filing asylum in the US on the ground of marital violence in Nigeria. Her aim was to get the Green Card and also get Tunde barred from entering the US, so she would not be able to look him in the eye and tell him the bitter truth.
After Tunde received the sad news first in 2017, he reportedly suffered stroke. He later recovered from the stroke but he was not okay again. He cried a lot.
As he got over the illness, Tunde was said to have tried to pick up the pieces of his life. He reportedly started another relationship with a lady lawyer. Soon, he invited some friends to accompany him to visit the lady’s parents on 26th December. However, the visit was not to be. Tunde was said to have gotten home from work in the night of 15th December, 2020, and collapsed at his residence’s staircase. He died instantly.
Autopsy report puts the cause of his death as ‘heart failure’.
Tunde Thomas, a former staff of the defunct Oceanic Bank, was buried on Wednesday, 30th of December 2020.
