The US authorities have released photographs from the scene of the fatal crash that killed Access Holdings’ CEO, Herbert Wigwe, and five others.

In photos released on Tuesday, two officials from the United States National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) were seen checking the helicopter’s debris.

Wigwe, his wife Doreen, their son Chizi Wigwe, and former Nigerian Exchange Group Chairman Abimbola Ogunbanjo crashed in an Airbus EC130 helicopter near the California-Nevada border in Halloran Springs.

The four passengers and two crew members on the ill-fated helicopter died on Friday, February 9.

The photographs, released after Michael Graham, an NTSB board member, stated that they had visited the site and documented the operations carried out on the first full day of investigation, show NTSB officials inspecting the wreckage.

Graham emphasized the agency’s dedication to a thorough investigation of the scene, stating that the team used overhead drone mapping and documented the wreckage.

He claimed that several electronic gadgets and onboard equipment were recovered from the scene for additional examination and analysis.

Since there, there has been an outpouring of grief from many Nigerians, including President Bola Tinubu, and many state governors who described the incident as a rude shock.

Prominent Nigerians including ex-Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Femi Otedola, ministers and governors, amongst others, have paid tributes to the deceased persons.
