Ogunbanjo’s Family Sues Charter Company over Helicopter Crash

The family of the late former Chairman of the Nigerian Exchange Group, Abimbola Ogunbanjo, who tragically lost his life in a helicopter crash in Southern California in February, has taken legal action against the US helicopter company.

The lawsuit, filed on Wednesday, also involves the former Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings, Dr. Herbert Wigwe, his wife, and son, all of whom were passengers on the ill-fated flight.

The Ogunbanjo family argues that the flight should have been canceled due to the hazardous weather conditions.

In February, Wigwe, along with his wife and son, met their untimely demise in a helicopter crash in California near the Nevada border, United States of America.

According to reports from the Press Enterprise, relatives of Ogunbanjo allege in the court filing that the charter company, Orbic Air, disregarded the dangerous “wintry mix” of snowy and rainy conditions in the Mojave Desert where the crash took place on Feb. 9.

Andrew C. Robb, one of the attorneys involved in the lawsuit, emphasized that Ogunbanjo’s family seeks “answers and accountability” through this legal action.

“Helicopters do not do very well in snow and ice,” Robb mentioned to The Associated Press.
