Herbert Wigwe’s aide, Olushola, escaped death after opting to travel by road – Reports

Faleye Olushola, the special assistant to Herbert Wigwe, co-founder and group chief executive officer of Access Holdings Plc, narrowly escaped tragedy on February 9.

Mr Wigwe, along with his wife and son, lost their lives in a helicopter crash.

The unfortunate incident involved Flight N130CZ, operated by Orbic Air LLC, crashing in the USA on February 10, with Wigwe, his wife Chizoba, and his son among the six passengers on board.

Remarkably, Olushola, listed on the manifest, avoided the disaster by choosing to travel by road instead of taking the helicopter from Palm Springs to Boulder City in Nevada.

Olushola, who had flown with Wigwe and others from London to Palm Springs, decided against the helicopter due to concerns about night-time weather conditions.

This decision spared him from the tragic air disaster that claimed the lives of four individuals, including Wigwe and his family.

Access Holdings responded to the incident, expressing a lack of “adequate information” about the crash and assuring collaboration with US authorities for updates.

Herbert Wigwe, known for inspiring messages, regularly shared positive content on his social media accounts, emphasizing living a life of purpose, kindness, and gratitude.

In another development, Adams Oshiomhole, the senator representing Edo North Senatorial District, urged Nigerians not to solely blame President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the current state of the nation.

Oshiomhole attributed some of the challenges to the policies of the previous administration led by ex-President Muhammadu Buhari.

He emphasized that national interest should take precedence over partisan considerations and acknowledged his criticism of Buhari’s policies during an interview on Channels TV.
