The wife of late Tunde Thomas, Moyo, in a statement on Friday laid to rest paternity concerns over her children, saying the deceased was their father.

Mrs Thomas said she refrained from commenting on the issue to preserve the memories of her late husband Tunde who died on December 16, 2020.

Recall that there had been controversy over why Moyo, a former banker left her husband and relocated to the United States in 2017.

The controversy led to media reports alleging that she was into a romantic relationship with the Managing Director of the FCMB, Adam Nuru.

This is the first time Moyo spoke since the scandal went viral on social media.

Below are key things she said in a statement issued on Friday:

1. She said on no occasion “did I ever tell him he was not the father of our two children.”

2. According to her, it is  deliberate falsehood and certainly malicious to allege and insinuate that she informed him that the children are not his.

3. The children still bear his name.

4. “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.”

5. She said she’s preserving the memories of her late husband, “not only to me, but to his children, who are still young, and to everybody who had a relationship with him.”

6. Mrs Moyo said they had many differences in their marriage with some leading to the intervention of the Police.

7. She claimed Tunde still had conversations with the children like any father will, “up until his sudden and unfortunate death.”
