Written by Chukwuma Obiasia

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has formally handed over to the Nigeria Police the 3 suspects, Mr Nehemiah Adejoh, Mr Igbekele Folorunsho and Mr Festus Gbayegun, who were involved in the death of late Flying Combat Officer, Tolulope Arotile.

Giving short highlights of the incident during the handover at the NAF Base Kaduna, the 453 Base Services Group Commander, Group Captain Hadi Ahmed, remembered how a KIA Serento SUV, with Registration Number AZ 478 MKA (Kaduna), driven by Mr Adejoh, with the 2 others as passengers, hit Flying Officer Tolulope Arotile on 14 July 2020, at about 4.30pm, when she was walking along Air Marshal Ibrahim Alfa Road in NAF Base Kaduna, leading to her ultimate death.

Group Captain Ahmed also highlighted that the 3 persons included in the accident, who were former schoolmates of the late Flying Officer at the Air Force Secondary School Kaduna, were en route to visit the spouse of a serving senior officer living in the Base before the incident occurred.

He said that the NAF would continue to collaborate with the Nigeria Police and render all required support to permit it to carry forward the case to its logical conclusion.
