US lawyer Herbert Wigwe says the helicopter crash was avoidable

According to US aviation attorney Robert Clifford, there may have been a way to prevent last Friday’s helicopter crash in California that killed Herbert Wigwe, the group chief executive officer of Access Holdings, and his family.

Clifford stated as much in a news release that was uploaded to the business’ website on Wednesday.

In the tragic collision, Wigwe, his wife Doreen, son Chizi, and Abimola Ogunbanjo—a former group chairman of the Nigerian Stock Exchange—all perished.

The border town between California and Nevada was the site of an Airbus Helicopter EC130B4 disaster.

Speaking in the midst of the US National Transportation Safety Board’s ongoing investigation into the helicopter disaster, Clifford is the Founder and Senior Partner of Clifford Law Offices in Chicago.

The statement read in part, “The crash of a helicopter that killed six people including a top Nigerian banker and his family along the California-Nevada border Saturday night immediately strikes one as a tragedy that may have been avoided given the known weather conditions at that time.”

He also expressed hopes that the US National Transportation Safety Board would determine if the crash was avoidable or not after its ongoing investigations.
