The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) on Friday officially handed over three suspects allegedly involved in the death of late Flying Officer Tolulope Arotile to the Nigeria Police.

The suspects were Mr Nehemiah Adejoh, Mr Igbekele Folorunsho and Mr Festus Gbayegun.

According to a statement by the Director of Public Relations and Information, Nigerian Air Force, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, the handover was done at the NAF Base Kaduna.

Ibikunle said the Commander 453 Base Services Group (453 BSG), Group Captain Hadi Ahmed, who made the suspects available to the police, recalled that ”on 14 July 2020, at about 4.30pm, a KIA Serento SUV, with Registration Number AZ 478 MKA (Kaduna), driven by Mr Adejoh, with the 2 others as passengers, knocked down Flying Officer Tolulope Arotile when she was walking along Air Marshal Ibrahim Alfa Road in NAF Base Kaduna, leading to her eventual death.

”Group Captain Ahmed highlighted that the 3 persons involved in the accident, who were former schoolmates of the late Flying Officer at the Air Force Secondary School Kaduna, were on their way to visit the wife of a serving senior officer residing in the Base before the accident occurred.”

The NAF spokesman therefore assured citizens that the Force would provide all necessary support to the police so as to bring the case to its logical conclusion.
