The Nigerian Air Force says that the death of flying officer, Tolu Arotile, was caused by what it describes as brute force and severe injuries.
In a news conference on Sunday, the spokesperson, Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, said the military is ruling out any possibility of foul play in the death of the young flying officer.
Commodore Daramola also confirmed that the driver of the vehicle that knocked down the late officer, Mr Nehemiah Adejo and the two other occupants of the car will be handed over to the police for prosecution since it is a civil case.
The late Arotile’s family and some prominent Nigerians have called for a thorough investigation into the circumstances leading to her death.
