The woman at the heart of the sexual misconduct allegation that led to the removal of the MD of FCMB, Adam Nuru has sensationally stated that her two kids were indeed born for her late husband and not the bank chief.
In her first public response to the controversy, Moyo Thomas also said all she wanted was to be left alone to mourn her late husband.
She said in a statement released at the weekend: “On no occasion did I ever tell him he was not the father of our two children.
“It is, therefore, deliberate falsehood and certainly malicious to allege and insinuate that I informed him that the children are not his.
“The children still bear his name. Only God knows why he died in an untimely period.
“It is not in my place, or anyone’s place to play God and talk with certainty as to the cause of his death, without proven medical facts”.
She said she refrained from commenting on the issue to preserve the memories of Thomas, who died on December 16, 2020.
“Memories, not only to me, but to his children, who are still young, and to everybody who had a relationship with him,” she said.
Mrs Moyo said they had many differences in their marriage, some of which led to police intervention but she remained committed to keeping only positive memories of him.
She said despite their separation, they never allowed their differences to affect their relationships with the children.
“He still had conversations with the children like any father will, up until his sudden and unfortunate death.
“It is quite sad and disheartening to see the pictures of these innocent children splashed all over the internet with very disparaging and weird comments,” she said.
She implored everyone to respect her privacy and “allow those grieving his loss, including the children and I, to do so in peace.”
