Her husband, Michael Ibru, himself a Mohammed Ali look-a-like, is no less a personable individual. She still cherishes the memories of working with him in his company. She became the managing director of Oceanic Bank international in 1997.

Highly respected among her peers as the 'First Lady' of Nigeria's banking industry, Ibru was the first female leader to raise her bank's equity to N25bn, (approx $203m), the first female to head the 5th largest bank and the 9th largest company quoted on the Nigerian Stock Exchange, the first female CEO of a Western Union Agency in West Africa to meet the performance and turnover targets of Western Union, and in year 2000, the first female CEO to post over N1bn profit ($8.143m at today's value) in a financial statement.
In April 2007, Oceanic Bank International came in at number 110 in African Business' Top 200 African Companies rankings, 12th in the West African sub-region and 16th in sub-Saharan Africa.
Mrs Ibru is challenging her removal as the CEO of Oceanic Bank in court just as she pleaded not guilty to the charges the EFCC brought against her.
But if Sanusi lives up to his promise that "I want my son to be able to say ... 'if you steal money in the banks, my father will put you in jail", she faces certain imprisonment.

Olorogun Michael Ibru: An Impeccable Life at 80 by Onajomo Orere

Michael Ibru

OLOROGUN (Dr.) Michael Christopher Onajirevbe Ibru, OFR has been a man of distinction.
Michael Ibru attended the famous Igbobi College, Lagos between 1948 and 1951. During the period, he not only distinguished himself in academics, he also excelled in extracurricular activities such that in his last year in school, he was appointed Senior Prefect, a position usually reserved for the best students with leadership traits. Ibru performed so well in his onerous task that later, three of his four brothers also attended the same school.
Michael Ibru was thus brought up in an atmosphere that unified the noble and time-honoured traditions of intellectual quest, faith in God and industry. His whole life has been a wonderful demonstration of the flourishing of these traditions - a life characterised by the exercise of genius, right motivations, and fear of God.
Following the same rare path that is meant only for exceptional people, Michael Ibru, directly after leaving Igbobi College, secured a job in the United African Company (now UACN), as a manager-in-training. Here again this gifted man, Michael Ibru, set another pace for his peers, for he was one of the very few fresh school leavers to be so appointed to posts of responsibility by the UACN.
To test his entrepreneurial skills, he resigned from the UACN group in 1956 and founded the IBRU ORGANIZATION with the establishment of a modest trading company then called Laibru Limited.
