“I am shocked and saddened to hear of the loss of a banking genius Herbert Wigwe, his dear wife Chizoba and first son Chizi.

Exactly two weeks ago Herbie and his wife hosted myself and Aliko to dinner at his newly built home in Lagos. I will cherish and fondly remember my memories of time spent together with him over the years.

Herbie, we will all miss you.

Your legacy will live on forever.

My heartfelt condolences go out to his children Tochi, Hannah and David. I pray God comforts them during this tragic time.

May the souls of the departed rest in perfect peace… F.Ote.”
