Details of 6-day funeral rites for Herbert Wigwe, wife and son

The Wigwe family has announced a six-day funeral schedule for Herbert Wigwe, his wife Chizoba, and their grandson Chizi Wigwe, who tragically died in a helicopter crash while en route to the Super Bowl in the United States earlier this month.

The funeral rites will span from March 4th to March 10th, 2024. The first two days will be dedicated to celebrating the lives of the deceased individually, with Herbert Wigwe honored on the 4th and his wife and grandson on the 5th. A tribute night will follow on the 6th.

A combined service of songs is scheduled for the 7th at the RCCG Resurrection Parish, which was chosen by the family despite their close ties to the City of David Parish in Victoria Island, Lagos.

Pastor Siju and Pastor Idowu, senior pastors at the City of David Parish, will not officiate in any of the burial rites. Instead, the Resurrection Parish in Lekki, located in Jakande Estate, will host the service of songs.

Following the service of songs, a Christian wake-keep will be held on the 8th at the Wigwe University in Isiokpo. A combined funeral service is scheduled for the 9th at the RCCG Lion of Judah Parish in Isiokpo, followed by a private internment ceremony on the same day.

The funeral rites will conclude with an outing service on Sunday, March 10th, 2024, at the RCCG Lion of Judah Parish in Isiokpo. Herbert and Chizoba Wigwe are survived by three children, Tochi, Hannah, and David, while Chizi Wigwe is survived by his wife Doreen and daughter Zara.
