The supreme leadership of the Yoruba Council of Youths Worldwide in affiliation with Yoruba Council of Women Worldwide and Igbimo Apapo Yoruba Lagbaye has charged the Federal Government to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of young Tolulope Arotile.
The groups stated this while reacting to the unfortunate incident in a release signed by Aare Dotun Hassan on behalf of the groups.
The groups said it frowned at the discreet manner of information and well conscripted scenario surrounding the death of Tolulope Arotile; a Yoruba descent from Ile-Ife and Ijumu Local Government Area of Kogi State, who was the first female combat trained helicopter pilot in Nigeria.
“We are gravely touched by the manner of information and ancillary condolences from President Mohammadu Buhari, Senate President, Chief of Air Staff, Minister of Defence to mention a few that followed suit without non demanding for immediate autopsy, forensic investigation and arrest of the killer.”
“This has increasingly raised our doubts beyond measure on who actually wanted this bright glowing flower dead by all means, having survived the most turbulent parts of the insurgency war in the North Central having wrecked spiral havoc against the dreaded boko haram bandits and terrorists.
“Considering her succinctly trained tactical etiquette in the air and having intelligently and tactically survived more dreadful moments on the war front, one could have imagined why she could be killed like a rat just like that.”
The groups call on all Yorubas to be on alert as Tolulope’s death speaks lots of huge volumes, in as much of the leading and bright dead officers at the battle field are from the Southern region, regrettably at the expense of the Northern interests who are hellbent to ensure our gallants men are brought home dead or buried on the battle field.
“Recently, we raised our concerns when General Adeniyi was summarily removed as commander of Lafiyadole over his disclosure of high-powered conspiracy to kill the general’s battalion due to inordinately designed misinformation and lack of weaponry to fight the bokoharam terrorist.
We therefore reiterate our demand on establishing the motive and remote causes that led to this fatal tragic story.” the statement added.
