Sad: Man Dies After Wife Told Him Her Boss, FCMB MD Adam Nuhu, Owns Their Two Children.
The News Gazette Online
Tunde Thomas (alias Tunde Gentle), 45, died about two weeks ago from heartbreak when the two kids from his marriage were discovered to have been fathered by the current managing director of the First City Merchant Bank (FCMB), Mr. Adam Nuru, who was his wife’s boss.
Tunde’s wife, Moyo Thomas (Nee Ojo), was reportedly engaged in an office romance with her MD, a relationship that was well known to all in the bank.
Happily married Billionaire Nuhu, got carried away in fornicating with Moyo, and spared no thought for Tunde who was bringing up the two children he thought belonged to him.
Those in the know say Tunde was so in love and attached to his wife and children that he spent most of his resources on them. He took them to London and Dubai on holidays.
He also spared no penny in putting the kids in the best schools.
At the height of the shameful relationship and when the older child was about eight (8) years old, Moyo suddenly resigned from FCMB and travelled to the US with the two children, ostensibly on holiday.
It was when the school session started in Nigeria and the children did not return that Tunde started asking questions and the lady finally summoned the courage to tell him the children were not his.
She then went to the extent of filing for asylum in the US on the ground of marital violence in Nigeria, against Tunde, a man known to all men by his gentle and easy going disposition. Her aim, we learnt, 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.
Not long after receiving the sad news in 2017, Tunde reportedly suffered stroke. He recovered from the stroke but was said to have become a shadow of his former self, as he would often cry without reason.
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 2020.
However, the visit was not to be, as Tunde reportedly collapsed while climbing the staircase in his residence on the night of 15th of December 2020 and died instantly.
Autopsy report puts the cause of his death as ‘heart failure’.
Tunde Gentle, a former staff of the defunct Oceanic Bank, was buried on Wednesday, 30th of December 2020.
