NDLEA Mourns late Access Holdings CEO Wigwe

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, condoles with the families, friends, staff of Access Holdings and Nigerians in general, over the death of Mr. Herbert Wigwe, members of his family and others in the tragic chopper crash of February 9, 2024, in California, United States of America.

Accorxing to a preaa release on Wednesday, 14th February 2024 signed by the NDLEA Director of Media and Advocacy, Femi Babafemi, said that the death of Mr. Wigwe, co-founder of Access Bank and CEO of Access Holdings, was a colossal loss to the nation.

Mr. Wigwe was an outstanding Nigerian, an icon of the banking profession, and a model of selfless service to humanity, who, in his ways, strove to make the Nigerian narrative better.

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, remembers him, especially for his donation of a parcel of land for the building of the NDLEA barracks in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, which is an invaluable contribution to the ongoing effort to rescue the country from the scourge of illicit drugs.

We join millions of Nigerians in mourning the passage of this rare gem, even as we pray that God gives his family, loved ones and the nation at large the fortitude to bear the loss.
