U.S Report Says Wigwe's Helicopter Was Seen as Fireball Before the Deadly Crash

U.S Report Says Wigwe
Herbert Wigwe
The United States National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has released a preliminary report about the helicopter crash that caused the death of the Group Chief Executive Officer (Group CEO) of Access Holdings Plc, Herbert Wigwe.

Recall that Wigwe, his wife, son, and a business partner lost their lives in a helicopter crash that occurred near Nevada in the United States of America.

US NTSB said law enforcement and witnesses in vehicles traveling by road saw a “fireball” before the helicopter conveying Wigwe's eventual crash.

The preliminary investigation report conducted by the US NTSB read:

“The accident flight departed Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) at 2045 under visual flight rules and flew a northwesterly heading for about 2 miles before following US Highway 111 to Interstate (I) 10 at altitudes varying between 2,500 – 3,000 ft mean sea level (msl),” the report read in part.

“The helicopter continued along I-10, crossed over San Bernadino International Airport, San Bernadino, California, and then followed I-215 to I-15.

“The helicopter followed I-15 toward the planned destination of Boulder City Municipal Airport (BVU), Boulder City, Nevada, climbed between 4,000 – 5,500 ft msl, then descended to about 3,500 ft msl near Barstow, California, where the ADS-B track data was lost about 2146, likely due to terrain interference.

“ADS-B data resumed at 2207 near the Halloran Springs/I-15 exit west of the accident location. The last ADS-B data points for the flight tracked east-southeast, gradually descended in altitude, and increased in ground speed.

“The accident site was located 0.31 miles east-southeast of the last data point at an elevation of about 3,360 ft msl.

“According to law enforcement, several witnesses who were traveling in vehicles on I-15 called 911 to report observing a ‘fireball’ to the south.

“The witnesses reported the weather conditions in the area were “not good” and raining with a snow mix. The accident site was located by law enforcement at 2346.”

The board said the “wreckage was located in a high mountainous desert and scrub brush covered terrain, and debris were scattered about 300 ft along a 120° magnetic heading from the initial impact point”.

“All major helicopter components were identified at the accident site,” the report indicated.

Recall that the death of Wigwe has generated mixed developments in Nigeria as the daughter of a former Oyo State Governor, Dr. Kemi Olunloyo was the first to hint at the possibility of unclean deed behind Wigwe's suspicious death, even though there was another hint suggesting Wigwe's death to be a natural justice for a misdeed he had allegedly involved himself in the past.

The Round Table also, recently, reported a revelation unveiled by Chukwudi Iwuchukwu where Wife of the RCCG Pastor where Wigwe worships every Sunday threw lavish party to celebrate her birthday a week after Wigwe's death. Many people belittled the path towed by the pastor, his family, and the church considering the amount of huge support, both morally and financially to the tune of billions of naira which Wigwe had contributed to the Church.

Consequently, the family of Wigwe has warned RCCG church never to come near the burial arrangement of Wigwe.
