It is yet another honour for  the late Tolulope Arotile, Nigerian first female fighter pilot, Flying Officer, as her former employers, Air Force (NAF), has named a two-block of 4 x 2 bedroom married officers accommodation at the NAF Base in Abuja after her.

This is happening a few weeks after a remodeled Pilots’ crew room ’ at the 115 Special Operations Group, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, was named after the pilot who died in a car accident at the NAF Base in Kaduna in July.

Air Vice Marshal A. Pani, Director of Administration, while explaining that the buildings were constructed by the Ministry of Defence as part of its 2018 capital project, said at the inauguration of the complex at NAF Base Asokoro, Abuja, on Wednesday, that nine other deceased officers, who died in active service, were also similarly honoured with blocks of buildings named after them.

His words: “These blocks are, therefore, being named after nine officers and one airman to immortalise them in recognition of their sacrifices. In this regard, at NAF Base Bill Clinton Drive, one of the two blocks of 10 x 1 bedroom transit accommodation is named after Flying Officer AA Mohammed (NAF/5082), who was KIA (killed in action) on 5 Sep 20 in Birnin Gwari while the second block of 10 x 1 bedroom transit accommodation is named after Flt Lt Akweke Junior Nwakile (NAF/3014) who was KIA on 21 Jul 14 while participating in Operation Lafiya Dole in the North -East.
