The luxury home of the Access Bank co-founder, the late Dr. Herbert Wigwe, and his family has emerged online.

The visionary banking genius, his wife, and their son, as well as three others, lost their lives in a helicopter crash which occurred on Friday night, February 9, 2024, in California, USA.

They were said to be on their way to watch the Super Bowl game in Las Vegas.

On Sunday, February 11, business mogul Femi Otedola took to social media to express his condolence. He shared an image of his final encounter with Herbert Wigwe exactly two weeks before his untimely demise.

Alongside him [Otedola] in the image was Nigerian industrialist Aliko Dangote, as they were hosted to dinner at the new home of Herbert Wigwe and his wife, located in Lagos.

The now-viral video of the home of the late banking genius has been making rounds on the X platform.

The rather elegant edifice depicts luxury, precision and detail.

The home sits on a large acre of land with an indoor and outdoor parking space, modern luxury interiors, elegant rooms, a gym, a spa, and a swimming pool, among many other luxuries.

According to the post, the home is located on Queens Drive in Lagos, where Herbert and his family are said to have moved in just last December.

Before his untimely demise, Dr. Herbert Wigwe had, over the years, played an instrumental role in Africa’s financial sector, championing various banking service reforms through the Access Holdings conglomerate.

In 2018, Access Bank became the largest bank in Nigeria after it purchased fellow competitor Diamond Bank.

Through the years, the bank has expanded its operations in Africa and beyond, with plans to open a new banking service in Asia this year.

Access Bank was founded in 1989.

Herbert Wigwe, a philanthropist and entrepreneur, was set to officially open his university in Nigeria, Wigwe University, in September 2024.
