Tears as Access Bank CEO Herbert Wigwe, wife, and son laid to rest

The remains of the late CEO of Access Holdings, Herbert Wigwe, and his wife Doreen Chizoba, along with their son Chizzy, were laid to rest on Saturday, March 9, in a private mausoleum at Wigwe University in Isiokpo, Rivers State.

Mourners gathered at the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Isiokpo for a funeral service, followed by a burial at the family’s private tomb around 2:45 pm.

The atmosphere was filled with sorrow as the caskets were lowered into the ground.

The Wigwe family tragically lost their lives in a helicopter crash near the California-Nevada border in the United States on February 9, 2024.

Their remains arrived in Nigeria on Friday, March 8, 2024, and were transported to Port Harcourt International Airport from the US. Accompanied by a large motorcade, the remains left the airport around 1:33 pm and were taken directly to the family compound in Omueke, Isiokpo.

Numerous dignitaries attended the funeral service.

The passing of Wigwe and his family is a significant loss.

He was a visionary leader who guided Access Bank to become a leading global financial institution.

Tributes continue to pour in from the business community, with many acknowledging Wigwe’s positive impact on the Nigerian economy.
