We Are Not Convinced Our Daughter Died In a Freak Accident – Tolulope Arotile’s Family

Damilola Adegboye, the immediate elder sister of the late first female combat helicopter pilot in the history of Nigerian Air Force, Tolulope Arotile, has revealed that the family is not convinced Arotile died in car accident as reported.

She made the revelation in an interview with The PUNCH on Thursday, while demanding thorough investigation into cause of her death.

She stated that her family is devastated by the untimely death, wondering how the reverse of a vehicle could kill a person in such manner.

Arotile reportedly died as a result of head injuries sustained after the car of a former classmate hit her when reversing at NAF Base in Kaduna State.

Her sister, Adegboye said;

“We in the family are not convinced that Tolu can just die like that in a freak accident. I know that the military is well trained in the art of investigation, we want them to carry out a thorough investigation that can convince us beyond all doubts that the incident that led to her death was real.

She revealed that on the day of the incident, Arotile and herself were in a room where she was sleeping, stressing;

A call came into her phone which she picked but from the way they spoke, I knew the caller must be a senior officer calling her to come to Airforce base. She felt reluctant and I offered to drop her off.

One hour later, I read online that something serious had happened to her. I could not believe that somebody I just dropped off is dead.”

Also speaking, the mother of Arotile went down memory lane about how she gave birth to her describing her as a special child adding that fasting and prayer was her hobby.

    I had written to demand the name of the officer that called her up but no officer at the Airforce Base even mentioned that aspect of the incident. The officer in question was also not man enough to own up that he called her up to the Base during her break. Why was that girl’s life snuffed out like that?
