Wigwe’s kinsmen promise to probe cause of death ‘traditional way’
The people of Isiokpo kingdom in Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State on Wednesday vowed to use traditional means in investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of their son, Herbert Wigwe, in a helicopter crash in the United States of America.

Wigwe, who was the Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings, was killed alongside his wife and son in a crash while travelling from Califonia to Nevava.
But peeved by his death, the Isiokpo’s traditional leadership, during a procession to begin eight days of mourning declared in Wigwe’s honour, said on Wednesday that they would deploy the ancient tradition to unearth the circumstances leading to his demise.

“We must get to the root of the whole thing. Isiokpo is an ancient city. We must go back to our traditional way and find out what really killed Herbert Wigwe,” the traditional ruler of Isiokpo,  Blessing Wagor said.

Our correspondent who visited the community on Wednesday observed that markets, shops and other business premises in the kingdom were shut, while the people wore black attires to mourn the death of Wigwe.
Many people in Omueke, Wigwe’s hometown and other communities in Isiokpo described him as generous, calm and friendly,

The procession that went round the communities terminated at the palace of the traditional ruler of Isiokpo,  Blessing Wagor, who was seated with his council of chiefs to receive hundreds of mourners.
