A solemn memorial service was held at the Eko Hotel in Lagos yesterday to celebrate the lives of Chizoba and Chizi Wigwe, the wife and son of the late Access Bank CEO, Herbert Wigwe, whose life was celebrated in a ceremony on March 4.

Chizoba was a legal advisor focusing on corporate law, commercial litigation and arbitration. In 2016, she founded Craneburg Construction, a construction firm responsible for multiple expressways, flyovers and bridges across the country.

Stella Eresia-Eke, Chizoba’s sister-in-law and Herbert’s youngest sister, began the tributes, sharing memories of their close relationship. “Chizoba was my friend, my sister. My parents were blessed with three beautiful daughters, my sister, Dr. Joyce, Peggy, Dupe, and I had a wonderful sister in Chizoba. Chizoba was my sister-in-law, but what happened along the way, the in-law fell off. Chizoba was my sister in love,” she said.

A very close friend of Chizoba, Ofovwe Aig-Imoukhuede, also shared touching memories of their friendship.“I found in Chizoba a warm and dependable friend and sister who could be counted on for everything. Her enterprising nature came in so handy when we were both stuck in the UK during COVID-19. She would regularly do drive-bys to my house, her car loaded with food and toilet papers when the shelves of the shops were bare.”
