Tolulope Arotile was Nigeria's first ever female combat helicopter pilot in the Nigerian Air force before her untimely death.
She was commissioned on the 15th of October, 2019 and became the first combat helicopter pilot. She, sadly, died after an unfortunate road accident from which she was lost to head injuries.
The father of the deceased, Engineer Akintunde Arotile, was recently interviewed where he disclosed that she had dreamed of being a pilot since she was a child.
While speaking on his last conversation with her, he revealed that he talked to her that day around 1pm but was called few hours later, around 5pm that his daughter is dead.
He also explained how he broke the news to the mother of the deceased. He said he drove to Lokoja all the way from Abuja to let her know physically. "when I got there, she had gone to the prayer mountain. She came back at 8:30pm and I told her what I heard."
May God grant the families of Tolulope the fortitude to bear the loss.
