Nigeria’s First Air Force Female Combat Pilot Dies at 23 arotile Nigeria's First Air Force Female Combat Pilot Dies at 23



The Chairman, National Youth Council of Nigeria Lagos State Chapter Comrade Comrade Biliamin Lekan Sulaimon-Oba and his executives on behalf of Lagos State Youths extend our heartfelt condolences to the Nigeria Airforce and Nigeria Government on the demise of the Nigeria’s First Air Force Female Combat Pilot Tolulope Arotile. She died as a result of head injuries sustained from road accident in Kaduna.

Arotile, who hailed from Iffe in Ijumu Local Government Area of Kogi State, recently completed a programme at the Starlite International Training Academy, South Africa.

Tolulope’s death at 23 is a big and painful loss to us at the National Youth Council of Nigeria Lagos State Chapter. During her short but impactful stay as a vibrant youth in the Service, she has contributed significantly to the efforts to rid the North Central States of armed bandits and other criminal elements by flying several combat missions under Operation GAMA AIKI in Minna, Niger State.

She died less than a year after she was decorated as the first female combatant helicopter pilot.

We pray that the Almighty God grants her soul eternal rest.

Comrade Abiodun Ajayi (Mandate)
