Moyo Thomas, former FCMB employee denies the allegations against her

About two weeks after the story broke out, Moyo Thomas, the former FCMB staff accused of having two children for Adam Nuru, the managing director of the bank has spoken up at last. Adam Nuru was forced to step aside as managing director of FCMB earlier in the week after being accused of fathering two children of his employee while she was married to Tunde Thomas. Friends of Tunde Thomas said Moyo reportedly revealed to her husband that he was not the father of the children after she left Nigeria for the U.S. in 2017. This shocking revelation led to the death of Thomas on the 16th December, 2020. Friends of the deceased had mounted a campaign to get Nuru sacked on ethical grounds.

Elon Musk becomes richest person in the world

Elon Musk just became the richest person in the world, with a net worth of more than $185 billion, according to CNBC calculations. Thursday's increase in Tesla's share price pushed Musk past Jeff Bezos, who had been the richest person since 2017 and is currently worth about $184 billion. Musk's wealth surge over the past year marks the fastest rise to the top of the rich list in history — and is a dramatic financial turnaround for the outspoken entrepreneur who just 18 months ago was in the headlines for Tesla's rapid cash burn and his personal leverage against the company's stock. Musk started 2020 worth about $27 billion, and was barely in the top 50 richest people. Tesla's rocketing share price — which has increased more than ninefold over the past year — and his generous pay package have added more than $150 billion to his net worth. Amazon's share price has remained more subdued due to the potential for increased regulation from Washington. Musk passed

A knee injury that forced him to miss five months of the year has continued to play up, with the striker and club doctors being unsure how he will react to training sessions. Not only does Man City's boss have his fingers crossed that the player can start in the FA Cup against Birmingham he has had the consolation of Aguero continuing to be a significant presence in the dressing room even if he cannot do a job on the pitch. "Only me knows how much I miss him, so just look at the numbers and the quality he has in the box," said Guardiola. "He’s unique, but he’s had a tough injury, really tough and the important thing is his mood is exceptional, b
