Wigwe’s Family Turns To RCCG Resurrection Parish, As City Of David Is Excluded In Burial Plans For Late Access Bank Czar, Wife, Son




The burial arrangement for late Herbert Wigwe, the former Group Chief Executive Officer (GCEO) of Access Holdings Plc, has been announced by his family.

Recall that the banking guru died in a chopper crash in the US on February 9, along with his wife, Chizoba, Chizi.

According to the funeral announcement, the deceased will begin their journey to their final resting place with a celebration of the professional legacy of the former GCEO of Access Holdings at the Eko Hotel in Lagos on March 4.

The procession 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-keeping at Wigwe University, Isiokpo, Ikwerre LGA, Rivers.

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

The City of David parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) where the late Wigwes worshipped was conspicuously excluded from the burial programme.

This comes after the senior pastor’s wife, Siju Iluyomade, held a talk of the town birthday party days after the unfortunate accident that took away three members of the Wigwe family.

Nigerians who reacted to the party,  argued that the cleric’s wife who was more of a spiritual mother to the Wigwes should have postponed her birthday party due to the unfortunate incident.
