The manifest of passengers on the helicopter that killed Access Bank CEO, Herbert Wigwe, his wife – Chizoba, 29-year-old son – Chizi, and Chief Abimbola Ogunbanjo, has shown that Wigwe’s personal assistant pulled out at the last minute.
The manifest besides registering the particulars of the passengers also indicated that the P.A., identified as 49-year-old Faleye Olushola John, pulled out at the last minute.
He reportedly chose, at the last minute, to travel by road with their luggage.
Faleye flew with Wigwe (58), his 56-year-old wife, son and the 61-year-old former Group Chairman of Nigerian Exchange Group Plc (NGX Group), Abimbola Ogunbanjo from London, United Kingdom to Palm Spring, a city in California, US.
On getting to Palm Spring, Faleye declined to board the ill-fated flight going to Boulder City in Nevada. He insisted that he would not travel by helicopter at night due to the weather conditions.
