The Chairman Senate Committee on Air Force, Senator Bala Ibn-Na’Allah, noted that nobody among the delegation could have the right word to express how painful the Flying Officer, Arotile's death was to them.

It was noted that commendations were given to the late Flying Officer by Senator Bala Ibn-Na'Allah as a "dedicated and goal-oriented young woman who lived an exemplary life that was worthy of emulation by other young Nigerians. While reiterating that the Nigerian Senate shares in the pain of the Service as well as that of the Arotile family. He further urged the NAF to continue to give opportunities for many young Nigerian girls to realize their dreams of serving their country as pilots in the NAF (source: BUSINESS DAY).

The Chairman House Committee on the Air Force, Hon Shehu Koko, on his part, while recalling the day Flying Officer Arotile was winged as the first female combat helicopter pilot in the NAF, noted that they at the House of Representatives, being aware of the many exploits the young officer had made in her short but impactful career, were extremely pained by her passing away but had taken solace in the fact that she had left a lasting legacy.

He, therefore, urged the CAS, and through him, the family of the deceased young officer to be consoled by the good deeds she left behind.

In his response during the visits, the CAS expressed his appreciation to the esteemed dignitaries as well as all Nigerians for their overwhelming show of support to the NAF over the passing of Flying Officer Arotile.

He noted that the NAF would never forget her, not only because she was the first female combat helicopter pilot in the Service, but also because of her legacy as a very intelligent, highly committed and extremely patriotic officer who excelled in virtually every endeavour. (Source: Vanguardngr)


May the good Lord console the family of the deceased and may her gentle soul rest in perfect peace.
