California Crash: Ogunbanjo Family Seeks Justice, Sues Charter Company

Ogunbanjo, the former chairman of the Nigerian Stock Exchange, was one of five people killed when the helicopter went down near the Nevada border. The lawsuit, filed by Los Angeles-based law firm Robb and Robb LLC, seeks unspecified damages for wrongful death, funeral expenses, and pain and suffering.

Attorneys for the Ogunbanjo family claim the “wintry mix” of snow and rain in the Mojave Desert on the day of the crash created unsafe flying conditions. They argue that Orbic Air should have grounded the flight for the safety of the passengers.

“We are pursuing justice for Mr. Ogunbanjo’s family and holding those responsible accountable,” said Andrew C. Robb, a partner at Robb and Robb LLC. The firm previously represented Vanessa Bryant, wife of the late NBA legend Kobe Bryant, in a wrongful death lawsuit following a 2020 helicopter crash.

Representatives for Orbic Air have not yet publicly commented on the lawsuit. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is still investigating the cause of the crash.

Abimbola Ogunbanjo was a respected figure in the Nigerian business community. He served as chairman of the Nigerian Stock Exchange from 2018 to 2023 and was known for his contributions to the country’s economic development.
