Nigeria’s 1st Female Combat Pilot Buried With Full Military Honours


A 500-Level student of the Department of Computer Engineering, University of Ilorin (UNILORIN), Mr. Okunlola Emmanuel Olarewaju, has invented an automated hand-washing machine that can assist in the fight against the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Speaking about his invention, the indigene of Ilora in Afijio Local Government Area of Oyo State, said the machine was designed to dispense water and liquid soap to encourage the personal hygiene needed to combat the disease.

Olarewaju said he was motivated to fabricate the machine because he felt he had the skill to produce something better than those he had seen and used.

 “The vehicle struck Flying Officer Arotile from the rear, knocking her down with significant force and causing her to hit her head on the pavement.

“The vehicle then ran over parts of her body as it veered off the road beyond the kerb and onto the pavement, causing her further injuries,” preliminary investigations revealed.

NAF ruled that Arotile’s death was caused by blunt force trauma to the head, and significant bleeding resulting from being struck by the vehicle.

The three involved in the accident have been identified as Nehemiah Adejoh, who drove the car, Igbekele Folorunsho, and Festus Gbayegun.

Adejoh, it has been revealed, was driving without a licence at the time of the accident.

NAF said during the weekend the case will be handed over to the Police.

The deceased pilot flew several combat missions under Operation Gama Aiki in Minna, Niger State.
