“How I miraculously escaped death in the helicopter crash – Late Access Bank CEO’s aide speaks

Faleye Olushola, the Special Aide to the late Co-founder and Group CEO of Access Holdings Plc, has stepped forward to share the harrowing account of his miraculous escape from deathon Friday night.

The ill-fated helicopter crash, as reported by Hitgist on  Saturday, claimed the lives of his boss, Dr. Herbert Wigwe, along with Herbert Wigwe’s wife and son.

The Co-founder and Group Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings Plc, Dr. Herbert Wigwe, along with his wife, Chizoba, and son, lost their lives in the helicopter crash that occurred on Friday night in the United States.

However, amidst the tragedy, Faleye Olushola, whose name was in the manifest, managed to survive.

According to ThisDay, Faleye Olushola had initially flown with Dr. Herbert 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, US.

However, upon reaching Palm Springs, Faleye Olushola, declined to board the helicopter bound for Boulder City in Nevada, citing adverse weather conditions and his reluctance to travel by helicopter at night.

Opting for the safer alternative of traveling by road, Olushola narrowly escaped the air disaster that claimed the lives of four others.

Meanwhile, Access Bank Plc has released a statement indicating its lack of “specific information” regarding the death of the Group Chief Executive Officer, Herbert Wigwe, who died in the helicopter crash in California near the Nevada border, United States of America.

The bank statement reads;

“We have received numerous inquiries concerning an airplane crash in the USA.

“Presently, we lack specific information; however, we are actively collaborating with US authorities who will furnish updates.

“Your understanding and support are valued, and we commit to keeping you informed promptly as we receive updates on the situation.”
