Tolulope's killer may Face 7 years in Prison, here's why.

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) launched investigation into the death of Tolulope Arotile, Nigeria's first female combat Pilot who was killed by a Kia Sorento SUV recently.

Information gathered disclosed that the Kia Sorento which killed Tolulope was driven and put in reverse by Mr Nehemiah Adejoh, a former classmate of Tolulope.

While the NAF disclosed that it has handed over the case to the Nigerian Police force, the prime suspect, Mr Adejoh might be arraigned in court soon due to the severity of the incident.

Information available at the moment indicates that the prime suspect may be Charged with Manslaughter. If convicted, Mr Adejoh could face 7 years imprisonment in respect to section 28 of the Road traffic law which states that "where reckless and dangerous driving has caused the death of a person, the accused person shall be guilty of an offence and is liable on conviction to imprisonment of seven years.”

It was also disclosed that the suspect Mr Adejoh had no valid drivers licence at the time of driving the car which killed Arotile.

Disclosing her cause of death, NAF Air Commander Ibikunle Daramola said, “death of Flying Officer Arotile was caused by blunt force trauma to the head and significant bleeding resulting from being struck by the vehicle.”

May her soul Rest in peace.
