Questionable paternity: Stop this rumour, fake news says Tunde Thomas friend, Adetunji Iromini - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news! 

A new twist has emerged as another round of petitioner claiming friendship of Tunde Thomas, has commenced new online slaught, this time in support of the embattled Managing Director of First City Monument Bank (FCMB), Mr. Adam Nuru, saying he never fathered any children belonging to late Tunde Thomas, reports ITREALMS.
The latest petitioner on behalf of friends of Thomas, who goes by the name, Adetunji Iromini, challenged the anonymous petitioner linking late Mr. Thomas children to Mr. Adam Nuru to own up.
Iromini, in his version of the petition, appealed to the public and Nigerians to desist from bastardising the name of the bank chief and his friend, Tunde Thomas, describing it as fake news.

Iromini who claimed friendship of over 20 years with late Tunde Thomas, said there is no iota of truth in the initial petition by faceless persons seeking sack of bank MD, Adam Nuru and inviting the Central Bank of Nigeria into the matter.

Details of Adetunji's appeal read:

"Dear All,

"I am inundated with calls/queries about marriage scandal circulating on social media to petition the current MD of FCMB on allegations that he is the father of the two kids from Tunde Thomas' first marriage. 

"Other than circulating rumours, that petitioner offers no iota of fact on the matter. 

"In as much as the writer and publisher of the article remains anonymous, I will enjoin us all to maintain the story as FAKE NEWS that it is (stop spreading rumours). 

"If anyone is truly concerned or have information, such should take the legal and proper approach. 

"Tunde is a highly private person who views challenges in life as opportunity to shine. But for death, Tunde would not have taken kindly to this publication. He never complained nor claimed to nurse a grudge against anyone on his past marital affairs. This much I know because we talk, wine and dine together often within the last 20 years. Neither Tunde nor any member of his family raised any dust about this matter."

"It is very wrong and totally unacceptable for an alien entity to seek cheap publicity at the expense of a gentleman that has gone to be with the Lord. Grieving friends and family members (surviving mother, siblings and wife) should not be caused further hardship.

"Please, I appeal to you all to stop spreading rumours.

"Adetunji Iromini"

Meanwhile the initial petition seeking to compel the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the board of the First City Monument Bank (FCMB) to dismiss Adam Nuru on ethical grounds over alleged marriage scandal is gaining momentum as it nears target of 2,500 signatures.
