The Nigerian Air Force has disclosed the identity of the person responsible for the death of Flying Officer Tolulope Arotile.

Ibikunle Daramola, NAF Director of Public Relations and Information revealed the name of Arotile’s ex-classmate, who hit Nigeria’s first female combat helicopter pilot with a vehicle as “Mr Nehemiah Adejoh”.

The Flying Officer sustained head injuries which led to her death on Wednesday after she was hit by a car driven by Adejoh at the NAF base in Kaduna State.

In a report given after preliminary investigation, Daramola said that Arotile reunited with three of her erstwhile schoolmates at the Air Force Secondary School, renamed Air Force Comprehensive School, Kaduna, on the day of her death.

Daramola said, “Mr Nehemiah Adejoh, Mr Igbekele Folorunsho and Mr Festus Gbayegun, drove past her in a Kia Sorento SUV, with registration number AZ 478 MKA. It is noteworthy that Messrs Adejoh, Folorunsho and Gbayegun are all civilians who live outside NAF Base Kaduna, but were on their way to visit one Mrs Chioma Ugwu, wife of Squadron Leader Chukwuemeka Ugwu, who lives at Ekagbo Quarters on the Base.

“Upon recognising their schoolmate, Arotile, after passing her, Mr Adejoh, who was driving, reversed the vehicle, ostensibly in an attempt to quickly meet up with the deceased, who was walking in the opposite direction. In the process, the vehicle struck Flying Officer Arotile from the rear, knocking her down with significant force and causing her to hit her head on the pavement. The vehicle then ran over parts of her body as it veered off the road beyond the kerb and onto the pavement, causing her further injuries.”
