Here in this article, i will be telling you short story about Tolulope Arotile, the first female Nigerian Air Force’s combat helicopter pilot in the history of the country. You will also have the opportunity to see what killed her and other things you need to know about her.

Tolulope is Nigeria citizens who was born in the year 1995 at Iffe area, Ijumu local government in Kogi State. According to our research, it shows that this particular lady we're talking about went to Kaduna State were she attended Air Force Primary and Secondary Schools.

In 2012, she proceeded in her career by joining Nigeria Air Force Flying training school and graduated in 2017.

In October 2019, Mrs Pauline Tallen who was the Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development in conjunction with Marshal Sadique Abubakar, the Chief of the Air Staff (CAS) crowned Tulope Arotile as the first female combat helicopter pilot in the history of Nigeria.

After Tolulope left his birth place (Kogi) right from her childhood to started her life career in Kaduna, it's so unfortunate that this young lady later died in this same Kaduna State.

She died by road accident in Kaduna at the age of 25 years, just eight months after she gained special recognition. She died with her co-partner Kafayat Sanni who was also said to be the first female fighter pilot in the history of Nigeria.
