How Herbert Wigwe built private tomb where he would be buried before he died



Investigations have revealed that late Dr. Herbert Wigwe built an impressive private tomb for himself, right within the sprawling grounds of his University before he died.

According to a report by Vanguard, the mausoleum is truly a sight to behold, and a total fit for a billionaire like Wigwe.

It is described to be a beautiful stamped concrete walkway, surrounded by vibrant greenery, leads to the breathtaking final resting place of the Wigwes.

The Wigwe’s family also built two more tombs to accommodate his wife and son who also died the in the air crash.

The three tombs are built using top-notch Italian Carara marble and adorned with exquisite foreign granite galaxy finishes.

“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.

Recall that Dr. Wigwe died alongside his wife and son on Friday, February 9, 2024 in a helicopter accident in the United States of America.

Dr. Wigwe was a key driving force and a larger-than-life personality who brought his remarkable passion, energy, and experience to the transformation of the Access franchise since joining the Bank in 2002.

Commenting on the passage of Dr. Wigwe, Mr. Abubakar Jimoh, Chairman of Access Holdings said: “The Access Family has suffered a major loss with the passing of Dr. Wigwe who was a great friend and fine gentleman. He had a prodigious intellect, admirable personal qualities, and vast business experience which he brought to bear on the Access Family and for which we owe him a debt of gratitude.”
