Many Nigerians on Twitter are clamoring for fathers to run DNA test of their children to avoid paternity fraud after Managing Director of First City Monument Bank (FCMB), Adam Nuru’s scandal broke out.
Reports involving the MD revealed that he fathered two children with a married ex-employee, Moyo Thomas (nee Ojo), whose husband, Tunde Thomas reportedly died of cardiac arrest over the matter.
The allegations were laid in a change.org petition started on December 30 seeking to “Compel the CBN & Board of FCMB to dismiss Adam Nuru on ethical grounds”.
More than 400 people have signed the petition asking the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to Nuru for unethical behaviour.
Reacting to the news, Nigerians have been debating on the issue on twitter, asking men to secretly conduct a DNA test on their children to avoid Tunde Thomas’s situation.

Nothing is expensive for Nigerian women until the topic is DNA Test.
Bone Straight hair?
Jimmy Choo shoes?
Of course, chicken change.

They will say you don’t trust them and you should use the money to buy land.

My house will have a DNA test. It has nothing to do with insecurity; nothing to do with mistrust. But everything to do with prudence. I have seen & heard enough to act like an ignorant man. If I must raise another man’s kid, it must be of my own volition. The old world is gone.

It’s only a lazy man that will ask you for DNA test and you have every right to divorce him, no woman should be married to a lazy man… Real men stand up, go out there and run the DNA test by themselves…

If you’ve ever gone through your partner’s phone out of suspicion of infidelity, you have no moral right to disagree with a man wanting to get a DNA test for the kids

Tunde died of depression after discovering that his supposed two children with Moyo belong to the FCMB MD.. Looking at this pictures, You don’t need anybody to tell you that this children is not Tunde children. You don’t need a DNA test to know if your children is yours or Not pic.twitter.com/rvjivRl5j0
