What Atorile told me on phone 4 hours before her death ” – Father of Nigeria’s first female combat helicopter pilot, Tolulope Arotile, speaks on their last moments

Father of Nigeria’s first female combat helicopter pilot, Mr. Akintunde Arotile, Tolulope, who died on Tuesday, July 14, has recounted the last conversation he had with her.

Tolulope, died as a result of head injuries she sustained from a road traffic accident at NAF Base Kaduna.

Speaking in an interview with Sahara Reporters, a devastated Mr. Akintunde said he called her on the phone on Tuesday July 14, at about 1:00pm on her return from an operation against bandits in Katsina State, and by 5pm, he was informed that she had died and was in the mortuary.
“She told me that she will later go out to make some photocopies and I told her not to be long and to return home on time because she was staying with my first daughter in Kaduna.

Around 5:30pm, somebody called me and asked if I had called her and I said yes. The person told me to call her again which I did, but there was no response. So, I called her colleagues and they were all crying on phone. I asked what happened, they were just crying. I called one of her bosses who told me that she was in the mortuary. I was shocked because said she was somebody I spoke with four hours earlier and by 5:00pm she was in the mortuary.” he said The bereaved father added that he had to drive to Lokoja, Kogi State, from Abuja to inform his wife about the unfortunate incident.

Recalling the early days of Tolulope who was his fourth child, Mr. Akotile said she had always wanted to be a pilot and that he thanked God she fulfilled her dream before she died.

“She has not just been brilliant but wonderful. She did all her Education from kindergarten to nursery at the Air Force base and Nigeria Defence Academy, Kaduna. One day, when she was very small, she pointed to one small aircraft packed on the field and said one day she was going to fly that aircraft, and I said Amen.

So, from that day she started working towards getting admission into the Nigerian Defence Academy Kaduna. She had a degree in Mathematics and became an Air Force Cadet.
