The family of late Herbert Wigwe, the former group chief executive officer (GCEO) of Access Holdings Plc, has released his burial arrangements.

Recall that Wigwe died in a helicopter crash in the United States alongside his wife and son.

Onboard the ill-fated helicopter was Abimbola Ogunbanjo, the former group chairman of Nigerian Exchange Group Plc (NGX Group), which crashed early February.

According to the programme, the burial ceremony of the Wigwes 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.
