Faleye, Wigwe’s personal assistant, explained how I was unable to accompany my employer on a helicopter trip due to baggage problems

Herbert Wigwe, who was the late Group Managing Director and CEO of Access Bank Plc, had his personal assistant Sola Faleye on board the helicopter that tragically murdered Mr. Abimbola Ogunbajo, his employer, wife, and son. Faleye missed the plane because of baggage problems.

Since the helicopter couldn’t hold their stuff, Faleye chose to accompany them by road instead, even though he was originally intended to travel in the chopper.

At Wednesday’s Night of Tributes, he made the statement while paying tribute to Wigwe and lamenting her loss.

“On that journey, five of us set off. On a Tuesday, Bimbo and I were chatting, and he expressed his desire to accompany us. I also informed him that my boss’s path isn’t always easy. Faleye explained that there are instances when it is possible to change course while in flight, and he mentioned that he intended to wait.

He stated he would wait after I told him he was still on his way to Abuja that day, but that he might not leave until after midnight.

Despite my best efforts, he insisted on staying home and waiting, even though we will actually be in London on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

From London, we took a plane to Palm Springs. I approached him, I recall, while we were in the air. I asked, “Sir, are you comfortable flying a helicopter at night?” Until now, I had never attempted it. “This is America, they have navigation systems for flying a chopper at night,” he said, and I returned to my seat.

“As they were loading the luggage, this thought started playing in my mind that, okay, you will fly a helicopter. One hour you are there,” he added. They have no intention of showing up for the next 3.5 hours. No, I am not going to bed. The arrival of these bags is still pending, and I must sit down and wait. I figured, what the heck, I can just bring the bags to the room and hand them to him and the others. In the line of duty, I always reason, as I mentioned before. Going up to him, I said that I felt it would be best to simply ride and deliver the bags to you since I thought it would be safer and more secure. I yelled out “Safe flight” and he gushed, “Brilliant idea.”

The late employer was a “great man,” according to Faleye.
