The New Nigerian People’s Party (NNPP) commiserates with the good people of Kogi State and the family of Tolulope Arotile, the first female combat helicopter pilot, who was announced to have died as a result of the head injuries sustained in a road accident yesterday Tuesday July 14, 2020 at NAF Base, Kaduna.

“The party, however, calls for thorough investigations into the remote and direct causes of the death of the 24 years old Kogi State born pilot and make the finding public, as some Nigerians are already suspecting that there may be more to the information released to the public.”

The party urged the government to make the findings of the investigation public. “In the light of the above, proper clarification is needed after investigations and we hope that this government will value the citizens enough to clear air on the suspicion.”

According to the NAF authority, Arotile was hit by a former schoolmate who was reversing to greet the record breaker.

She died at 24.
