Nigeria’s first female combat helicopter pilot Flying Officer Tolulope Arotile has been honored in a comic book.
The book Girls Can Fly was launched on Friday with her parents in attendance.
Also in attendance were the Minister of Information and Culture Lai Mohammed and a representative of the Chief of Air Staff Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar.
“She represents the best & the height our youth can attain. Even in death she is a champ,” a tweet by Gboyega Akosile chief press secretary to Lagos State governor read.
Arotile died on July 14 aged 24 at the NAF base in Kaduna following an accident.
