Falaye Olusola, the Special Assistant to the late CEO of Access Bank, Herbert Wigwe, escaped death as he declined to board the ill-fated flight that took the lives of his boss and five others.
According to ThisDay, Olusola, whose name was on the manifest, declined to board the chopper which crashed in Nevada, United States on February 9th.
Olushola had flown with Wigwe, his wife, son and former Group Chairman of Nigerian Exchange Group Plc (NGX Group), Abimbola Ogunbanjo from London, United Kingdom to Palm Spring, a city in California, US.
But on getting to Palm Spring, Olushola declined to board the ill-fated flight going to Boulder City in Nevada, insisting that he would not travel by helicopter at night due to the weather conditions.
He was said to have travelled by road as they were scheduled to watch the Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas.
