The Nigerian Air Force has confirmed that two persons have been arrested over the death of Nigeria’s first female combat helicopter pilot as investigation was launched to unravel circumstances leading to the death of the Flying officer in a road mishap last week.

Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, NAF Director f Public Relations and Information in a communique said the force will disclose findings after investigation.

Daramola said that the Arotile would be laid to rest at the National Cemetery, Abuja on Thursda, July 23 in maximum military honours.

He reiterated the commitment of NAF to continue to support female pilots who would serve the country, saying that 11 are being trained within and outside the shores of Nigeria to take up the challenge.

The country is yet to recover from the shock that greeted the announcement of Arotile’s death on Tuesday, who died at the NAF base in Kaduna State from what was reported to be a road traffic accident.

 

NAF said her death was as a result of head injuries sustained when she was “inadvertently hit by the reversing vehicle of an excited former Air Force secondary school classmate while trying to greet her.”
