The family of the late Herbert Wigwe, the former group chief executive officer of Access Holdings Plc, has announced arrangements for his burial rites.

Wigwe, his wife, Chizoba, and their first son, Chizi died in a helicopter crash in the US on February 9.

According to the funeral announcement, the family of the Wigwe will begin with a celebration of the professional legacy of the former GCEO of Access Holdings at the Eko Hotel in Lagos on March 4, and will end with an outing service at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Lion of Judah Parish, Isiokpo, Ikwerre LGA, Rivers, on March 10.

The lives of Chizi and Chizoba will be celebrated in separate ceremonies scheduled for March 5 at the Eko Hotel in Lagos, before a night of tribute a day later at the same venue.

A combined service of songs will be held on March 7 at the RCCG, Resurrection Parish, Lekki, followed by a Christian wake at Wigwe University, Isiokpo, Ikwerre LGA, Rivers.

The combined funeral and private interment service are scheduled for March 9.

The City of David parish of the RCCG was conspicuously excluded from the burial programme after the senior pastor’s wife, Siju Iluyoma, held a talk of the town birthday party about two weeks after the death of Wigwe, his wife and son. Many argued that the cleric’s wife who was like a spiritual mother to the Wigwe’s should have postponed her birthday party due to the unfortunate incident that happened to the trio who were prominent members of their church.
