A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, has called for a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Tolulope Arotile before she is finally buried.
According to the lawyer, Nigerians needs to know the truth about the cause of Tolulope’s death. “Nigerians deserves proper investigation into the death of Arotile before burial”. He said.
Speaking further, Adegboruwa in his words said, “The sudden death of Tolulope Arotile has caused a national mourning in this time of COVID 19 pandemic.
“It is tragic, painful and gruesome. The inconsistent stories emerging from the Nigerian Air Force has not helped to douse the suspicions.
“The least we expect is a proper investigation, followed with a Coroner’s Inquest, including an independent autopsy report.
“There is no point in rushing to bury her in the light emerging revelations”.
While urging the President, Muhammadu Buhari, to direct a full investigation into the cause of her death as well as suspend burial plans until the conclusion of the investigations, Adegboruwa listed 10 questions deserving answers as the unfortunate incidence is concerned.
1. Who drove the car?
2. Where did the accident happen?
3. Where was Arotile going to?
4. A reversing car means it had passed her, so was she trekking?
5. Was she blindfolded not to see the reversing car to escape?
6. Were her legs tied?
7. What kind of medical treatment did she receive?
8. In which hospital was she treated?
9. Who called her out from her rest after a successful air combat on bandits?
10. Why are there inconsistent statements from the Nigerian Air Force, being released in bits and pieces?
It is worthy of note that the circumstances surrounding the death of the Nigerian Airforce flying officer, reputed to be the Nation’s first ever combat helicopter, has generated a lot of controversies and mixed feelings among Nigerians who believes there’s more to the occurrence than what was reported by the Nigerian Airforce.
StarMedia Renaissance, in a follow up to the whole issue, also reported concerns raised by Mrs. Damilola Omolabake Adegboye, an elder sister to Tolulope, who says she believed there was a foul play regarding the death of her sister.
