The immediate older sister of the late first female combat pilot, Tolulope Arotile, Damilola Adegboye has called for a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding her death, saying that the deceased got a phone call before the accident that killed her took place.
Adegboye in an interview with newsmen at the weekend, said that the family is devastated by the untimely death wondering how an ordinary reversing could kill a person just like that.
“We in the family are not convinced that Tolu can just die like that in a freak accident. I know that the military is well trained in the art of investigation, we want them to carry out a thorough investigation that can convince us beyond all doubts that the incident that led to his death was real. She said on the day of the incident, Tolu and herself were in the room where she was sleeping”. She said.
“A call came in to her phone which she picked, but from the way they spoke I knew that the caller must be a senior officer calling her to come to Airforce base, she felt reluctant and I offered to drop her off”, she added.
According to her, "One hour later, I saw online that something serious has happened to her. I couldn’t believe that somebody I just dropped off is dead.”
