Mr Akotile the father of the late Tolulope has revealed the last conversation he had with his daughter before she kicked the bucket. Mr Akotile disclosed that he called her around 1:00pm when she had returned from an operation against bandits in katsina state. And the two of them had few talk.

But later in the day he discovered from someone else how the situation of things had changed. He was later told by some her colleagues that she had passed on. Very devastating.
