It is with great sorrow that the Nigeria Air Force regretfully announces the unfortunate demise of Flying Officer Tolulope Arotile, who died on 14 July 2020 as a result of head injuries sustained from a road traffic accident at NAF Base Kaduna. Until her death, Fg Offr Arotile, who was commissioned into the NAF in Sept 2017 as a member of Nigeria Defence Academy RC 64, was the first-ever female combat helicopter pilot in the Service.
and second the owner of the motorcycle company, ‘GoKada’ and co-founder of ride-sharing venture ‘Pathao’, Fahim Saleh whose dismembered body was found in his New York home on Tuesday by officers of The New York City Police Department (NYPD).
