Nigeria’s First Female Combat Helicopter Pilot Succumbs To Head Injuries...

Oh Dear!!!!

Flying Officer Tolulope Arotile, the first-ever female combat helicopter pilot in Nigeria, is dead. She was barely 23 years of age.







Arotile died as a result of head injuries sustained from a road traffic accident at Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Base Kaduna.

Her death came barely a year after she was winged as a combat helicopter pilot in the Air Force following the completion of her course in South Africa.

Confirming the accident, NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, said until her death, ‪Flying Officer Arotile, who was commissioned into the NAF in September 2017 as a member of Nigerian Defence Academy Regular Course 64, was the first ever female combat helicopter pilot in the service.‬

He said: “During her short but impactful stay in the service, late Arotile, who hails from Iffe in Ijumu Local Government Area of Kogi State, contributed significantly to the efforts to rid the North Central States of armed bandits and other criminal elements by flying several combat missions under Operation GAMA AIKI in Minna, Niger State.

“The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, on behalf officers, airmen, airwomen and civilian staff of the NAF, commiserates with the family of late ‪Flying Officer Arotile‬ over this irreparable loss. We pray that the Almighty God grant her soul eternal rest.”

    4. They didn't write cause of accident that resulted in her death,giving people room to make suspicious speculations,I heard she saw an old school mate,the guy already drove past her and was reversing his car to go say hello to her and accidentally hit her,now this is my question,is it possible to be speeding that much reversing a car to the extent of causing such deadly injury?I also heard the speed limit at the airforce base in kaduna is 20mph,even if the guy was doing a 20 reversing,it shouldn't cause this much fatal injury,they need to say how the accident really happened.
