Herbert Wigwe Built His Tomb Before Helicopter Crash



A credible source has revealed that before the tragic passing away of Dr. Herbert Wigwe in a helicopter crash, he had already built a befitting private tomb for himself.

The tomb which is located within the massive expanse of the University he built is a sight worthy of a billionaire. A stamped concrete walkway sandwiched by a green lush leads to the ecstatic final resting place of the Wigwes.

The painful death of Herbert Wigwe, the esteemed former Group Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings Plc, alongside his wife, Chizoba, son, Chizi, and Abimbola Ogunbanjo, the former group chairman of the Nigerian Exchange Group Plc (NGX Group), has cast a sombre shadow across Nigeria.

Their untimely demise in a helicopter crash in the United States last month has left the nation in mourning.

The entire Isiokpo community in Rivers State is bustling with activity; roads are being refurbished, potholes filled, and the landscape beautified to honor Wigwe’s final return.

The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in Isiokpo and the parish are receiving facelifts to accommodate the mourners who will gather to pay their respects.

Saturday Vanguard hinted that three tombs have been constructed with state-of-the-art Italian Carara marble and finished up with a foreign granite galaxy.

“Do not grief, for the joy of the Lord is your strength”, is an inscription embossed on the top corner of the composing mausoleum. The sight of the transparent private cemetery is a clear testament to the fact that Dr. Herbert Wigwe was not just rich while alive, he appears even richer in death.

With thousands of foreign guests expected to pay their last respects to this rare gem, what will be the cynosure of all eyes is the expansive landmass of the Wigwe International University. The construction of the university has 60% of its local content in terms of labour deployed from Rivers State, 20% from Isiokpo and the remaining 20% from the rest of Nigeria. A touch of a detribalized man, one would say.

“He built this private cemetery before he started the university. His house here has been designed to have a special gate and walls separated from the university. I can tell you that he had a big vision. Very good vision and he was making efforts to ensure that those visions came to a reality. But what I cannot tell you right now is whether those visions will still be achieved”, a credible source decried.

Going spiritual, the source said, “it is only the owner of the vision that can implement his visions to the letter. I cannot say if those visions including the university will be accomplished in line with the dreams of the owner of the vision”.

Virtually all the buildings within the university environment are receiving an accelerated touch. Every completed building wears the same colour of pure white and some black corrugated roofs. The internal road construction is ongoing with the speed of light. Every staff knows his brief.
