Ibikunle Daramola, Nigeria Air Force (NAF) spokesperson, confirmed her demise late Tuesday in a tweet.
Daramola announced that Arotile died as a direct result of head injury as a result of just a road traffic incident at the NAF Base in Kaduna State, northern Nigeria.
Arotile, as per Daramola, died just a year of being winged as a combat helicopter pilot in the Air Force after completing her service in South Africa.
Rest In Peace Arotile.
