Mr Shyngle Wigwe, the father of the late former CEO of Access Holdings, Dr Herbert Wigwe, experienced a health scare as he slumped on Saturday, which prompted an immediate hospitalization.

Though, it was reported in some section of the media (Not NewsBand) that Mr Shyngle died after he slumped.

But while dismissing false reports of his death, influencer Tony Ogbuagu clarified the situation on his official X handle. He called for restraint in spreading misinformation.

He wrote, “Herbert Wigwe’s father is not dead please. He only slumped and has been taken to the hospital. Make una slow down with all these bad news.”

The funeral service for Herbert Wigwe, his wife Doreen, and son Chizzy took place at the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Isiokpo, Ikwerre local government area of Rivers State.

NewsBand reported that the bank chief died in a fatal helicopter crash with his wife, son, and a former Group Chairman of the Nigerian Exchange Group, Mr Abimbola Ogunbanjo in the United States.

The chopper, identified as Eurocopter EC 130, is said to be en route to Las Vegas when the unfortunate crash occurred near a border city between Nevada and California.
