Tragic Helicopter Crash Claims Lives Of Nigerian Business Leaders

Date:

The recent helicopter crash in California, United States, has led to the untimely demise of prominent Nigerian business leaders, Herbert Wigwe and Abimbola Ogunbanjo, along with their family members. The tragic incident has sent shockwaves through the Nigerian financial community and beyond, leaving behind a profound sense of loss.

Herbert Wigwe, a revered figure in the Nigerian banking sector, served as the Group CEO of Access Bank and played a pivotal role in its growth and expansion across Africa. His contributions to the financial industry were widely recognised, earning him accolades such as the African Banker of the Year award.

Abimbola Ogunbanjo, former chairman of Nigerian Exchange Group Plc (NGX Group), was also onboard the ill-fated helicopter. His leadership and vision were instrumental in shaping the transformative journey of NGX Group; leaving an indelible mark on Nigeria’s capital market.

The tragic accident has not only robbed Nigeria of two exceptional individuals but has also left a void in the corporate world that will be difficult to fill. The loss of Wigwe and Ogunbanjo is deeply mourned by their families, friends, colleagues, and the entire nation.

As investigations into the crash continue, reports suggest that adverse weather conditions may have contributed to the accident. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) in the U.S. is leading the investigation to determine the probable cause of the crash.
