I narrowly avoided being on the crashed chopper that tragically took the life of my boss, the late Access Bank CEO Wigwe.

Faleye Olushola, Herbert Wigwe’s special assistant, miraculously survived the tragic helicopter accident on Friday night, February 9, which claimed the lives of his boss, wife, and son.

Kindly remember that the CEO of Access Holdings Plc, along with his wife, Chizoba, and son, tragically lost their lives in a helicopter crash in California, USA.

On Friday night, February 9, 2024, a tragic incident took place near the Nevada-California border while they were en route to Las Vegas.

Olushola, whose name was on the manifest, narrowly avoided tragedy by choosing to travel by road instead of boarding the ill-fated aircraft.

As reported by ThisDay, Olushola travelled with Wigwe, his wife, son, and former Group Chairman of Nigerian Exchange Group Plc (NGX Group), Abimbola Ogunbanjo from London, United Kingdom to Palm Spring, a city in California.

However, upon arriving in Palm Spring, Olushola politely refused to board the unfortunate flight bound for Boulder City in Nevada.

 He expressed his concern about travelling by helicopter at night due to the current weather conditions.

It was reported that he chose to travel to Boulder City by road, avoiding the air disaster that tragically took the lives of four others.
