First City Monument Bank (FCMB) has appointed Yemisi Edun as its acting Managing Director.
The development followed the paternity scandal involving its current MD, Adam Nuru, and an ex-employee of the bank, Moyo Thomas.
In an official statement on Wednesday, the bank said, "In line with normal corporate practice, Mrs Yemisi Edun is acting as the Managing Director of FCMB in the interim period while Mr Adam Nuru is on leave. She has not been appointed as the substantive Managing Director. Thank you."
SaharaReporters had reported how Nuru went on leave to enable the bank to investigate the allegations against him.
