It has been revealed that the late Group Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings PLC, Herbert Wigwe, built a mausoleum for himself.

Vanguard News revealed this in a special report it did ahead of the commencement of the burial of the top banker.

Wigwe, his wife, Chizoba, and his son, Chizi, are scheduled for burial between March 4 and 10, 2024.

The three died in an helicopter crash in California, United States of America on February 9, 2024.

According to the report by Vanguard News, the mausoleum, where Wigwe will be buried, is located inside Wigwe International University, Isikpo, Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

The report said: “As if he had a premonition of his tomorrow, Dr. Herbert Wigwe had already built a befitting private tomb for himself.

“Located within the massive expanse of the University environment, the mausoleum is a sight worthy of a billionaire.

“A stamped concrete walkway sandwiched by a green lush leads to the ecstatic final resting place of the Wigwes.

“Saturday Vanguard scooped that three tombs have been constructed with state-of-the-art Italian Carara marble and finished up with a foreign granite galaxy.”

According to the credible newspaper, inscribed on the top corner of the mausoleum were the words: “Do not grief, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

The newspaper added: “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 percent of its local content in terms of labour deployed from Rivers State, 20 percent from Isiokpo and the remaining 20 percent from the rest of Nigeria.

“A touch of a detribalised man, one would say.”

A credible source told Vanguard News: “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.
