Business man, Femi Otedola, has revealed how the Group Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings Plc, Herbert Wigwe, hosted him and fellow business man, Aliko Dangote, in his new house two weeks before his death.

Wigwe alongside his wife and son were on board an ill-fated helicopter that crashed near Nevada border in California, United States on Friday.

Also on board the chopper were the former chairman of Nigeria Exchange Group, Abimbola Ogunbajo, and two others.
