Death is inevitable. It is often said that the only thing that is certain about life is death. It comes for most people when they don't expect.
This is what happened to Flying Officer Tolulope Arotille , Nigeria's first female combatant helicopter pilot whose sudden death occurred on Tuesday.
It was reported that Tolu died as a result of complications from head injuries she sustained in a road accident.
According to Nigerian Air Force, she was knocked down by her excited former secondary mate who tried to reverse to greet her after sighting her standing by the roadside within NAF Base, Kaduna.
Accidents do happen. An accident is an unexpected event. It is not planned. Nobody is to blame for accidents, unless it is caused by someone's negligence or recklessness.
In the case of Tolu, two things may likely happen to the person who drove the car that hit her down.
First and foremost, the Nigerian Air Force which have the power and authority to investigate the accidentmay set up a Commission of Inquiry COI, to look into the immediate and remote causes of the accident.
The commission, if set up, may look into areas such as whether the driver of the vehicle which killed her had a driver's licence when driving? If he or she has , was it valid?
The circumstances that surrounded the accident may also be examined. Was there recklessness or negligence on the part of the driver? If recklessness is identified, the driver would be punished accordingly.
If the driver had no driver's license, that will be is a serious offence. According to an anonymous military source, the military have their own special way of dealing with such issues.
The driver could be exenorated and acquitted if there was no evidence of recklessness.
