According to reports by journalists, they were buried in a private tomb inside the Wigwe University built by Wigwe in Isiokpo, Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State.

Also in the report, their remains moved from the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Isiokpo after a funeral service to the private mausoleum where tears flowed freely as the bodies were lowered into the grave at 2.45 pm on Saturday.

Recall, Late Wigwe, together with his wife, Chizoba, and son, Chizzy. died in a helicopter crash in the California-Nevada border, United States of America.

Abimbola Ogunbanjo, Chairman of Nigerian Exchange Group Plc, was also involved in the crash.

The remote cause of the crash has not yet been identified, although a preliminary report released by the US National Transportation Safety Board, NTSB, two weeks ago, announced the chopper was seen by several onlookers in vehicles who reported it as a “fireball” prior to the crash.

The NTSB said, the eyewitnesses reported that the weather on the day of the incident was a mix of rain and snow.

Wigwe's death remains one of the most horrifying in the Nigerian banking sector.
