The United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has provided an update on the air mishap that resulted in the loss of Herbert Wigwe, Group Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings Plc.

FAA said it will be part of the investigations into the air mishap that claimed Wigwe’s life.

Recall that Wigwe, his wife and son were onboard the chopper when it crashed in California near the Nevada border.

Abimbola Ogunbanjo, the former group chairman of Nigerian Exchange Group Plc (NGX Group), was also reported to be onboard the chopper.

FAA said the Eurocopter EC130 helicopter crashed around 10 pm California time (Saturday, 7 am Nigerian time).

However, FAA said the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will be in charge of the investigation and will provide any updates.

A US local news, KTLA 5 News, said the helicopter took off from Palm Springs but it was not clear where it was headed.

While one of the choppers had Wigwe and his family on board, Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede, Wigwe’s business partner and former Access bank CEO, and Tunde Folawiyo, business mogul, were reportedly aboard the second chopper.
