Ned Nwoko, Nigerian Billionaire and senator, explained how he escaped death by not going to the Titanic submarine adventure, which claimed the lives of five Billionaires.
Nwoko remarked that Hermish Harding, the British businessman and explorer, invited him to the Submarine adventure, but he could not go due to national duties. Years ago, both went on an adventurous expedition to the Southpole Antarctica.
The Oceangate’s Titan Submarine went missing in the Atlantic Ocean on June 18, 2023, and later, on June 20, it was confirmed that all persons boarding the submarine to explore the historic Titanic ship were dead.
Ned Nwoko, the Nigerian lawyer, philanthropist and politician, has significantly contributed to Nigerian politics and served as a member of the House of Representatives between 1999 and 2003.
He mourned the death of his friend Hermish Harding who was declared dead, along with five others, during an ill-fated adventure in the Atlantic Ocean.
On his social media account, Nvoko wrote, “I lost a dear friend and a business partner, Captain Hermish Harding. He was a courageous man always ready for adventure and exploration”.
Highlighting the memories Nvoko had with Harding, he shared several pictures where both can see together exploring the extreme minus temperatures of South Pole Antarctica. They waved the Nigerian flag at the South Pole with a message written on him, ‘Eradicate Malaria in Africa.’
The Nigerian senator illustrated that Hermish Heading was also a gulf stream pilot who flew across the world in a record-breaking journey by Guinness world record to encircle the earth some years ago.
Nvoko stated that Heading was very enthusiastic and always supported and allowed him to explore the world along with him. He mentioned that on Sunday, June 18, he received the last message from his British friend in which he said that he was going to dive to Titanic if the weather permits.
Later, a tragedy happened, and Nvoko lost his dearest friend with whom he had a wonderful time. He sent his heartfelt condolences to Heading’s family and hoped God gave them strength to bear the irrecoverable loss.
