NAF final report on the death of Flying officer Tolulope Arotile, Nigeria’s first female combat helicopter pilot,who died on Tuesday, 14th July, 2020 as a result of head injuries sustained from a reversing vehicle of her excited former Air Force secondary school classmate that accidentally hit her

According to Nigerian Air Force spokesman, Ibikunle Daramola, the report ruled out foul play on her death as the autopsy shows that she died of BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA. 

The report also shows that the driver of the Kia Sorento SUV that hit her has no driving license and was not under the influence of alcohol or any drug when the accident occurred.

The three (3) boys involved in the car accident are; 

Nehemiah Adejoh (driver)

Igbekele Folorunsho and

● Festus Gbayegun.

They are all civilians and have been handed over to the police for further persecution.

Why The Driver May Be Jailed.

Dispite being Tolu's classmate and friend, and hitting her unintentionally when he reversed to greet her, the driver may bang years in imprisonment for reckless driving or Life Imprisonment for manslaughter.

According to Nigeria’s traffic law driving without a license is a serious traffic offence on its own that attracts impoundment of the vehicle of a guilty driver, while vehicular death or manslaughter whether intentionally or not carries minimum jail terms.

However, the case may be watered if Tolu's family would want to settle out of court with the family of the driver.

See you in the comments. Have a prosperous week.
