In a shocking turn of events, Faleye Olushola, a special aide to Access Bank CEO Herbert Wigwe, narrowly escaped the tragic helicopter crash that claimed the lives of his boss, Herbert Wigwe, his wife, and son.
The accident occurred on Friday night as they were en route to Las Vegas, near the border of Nevada and California.
According to reports, Olushola had initially flown with Wigwe, his family, and Abimbola Ogunbanjo from London to Palm Springs, California.
However, upon reaching Palm Springs, he made the fateful decision to opt out of the helicopter trip, citing unfavorable weather conditions for night helicopter travel. Instead, he chose to take a road trip to their final destination.

The tragic incident has left the Nigerian banking community in mourning, with many expressing their condolences and shock at the sudden loss of such a prominent figure.
Faleye Olushola’s decision to travel by road instead of joining his boss and colleagues on the ill-fated helicopter has undoubtedly saved his life.
It serves as a stark reminder of the importance of considering all factors when making travel decisions, and the potential consequences of taking risks.
As the investigation into the cause of the crash continues, the world mourns the loss of Herbert Wigwe, his family, and the other victims of this tragic accident.
