Suspected killers of Tolulope Arotile regain freedom


It’s been a few weeks after the country lost its first female combat helicopter pilot, Tolulope Arotile to death. It was learned today that the suspected killers of Tolulope has regained their freedom.

This information is gotten from the legal advice from the Director of Public Prosecution, which was read in the open court today which states that there is no premeditation in the death of the flying officer Tolulope Arotile, but that there is sufficient evidence to prosecute the 1st suspect who was identified as Nehemiah Adejor for the culpable homicide is not punishable by death.

This is reportedly a huge relief for the friends and relations of the 2nd and 3rd suspected killers of Arotile, as they were set free by the Kaduna State Magistrate Court earlier today.

Gbayegun Deji and Folorunsho Igbekele Faith who were both the passengers in the vehicle that Nehemiah was driving were reportedly released. When the case was brought up at the Magistrate Court 1 on Thursday, the prosecuting counsel, DSP Martins D. Leo pleaded with the court to discharge the 2nd and 3rd suspects as the investigations conducted did not find them wanting.

The Magistrate, Benjamin Hassan had discharged the 2nd and 3rd suspects, Folorunsho Igbekele Faith and Gbayegun Deji, based on the reports of the Police investigation, which did not find them wanting and the legal advice from the state’s Director of Public Prosecution Bayero Dari Esq, stating that they have no case to answer.

However, the first suspect, Nehemiah Adejor who had driven the car that killed Tolulope Arotile has been arraigned at the State’s High Court for Culpable Homicide which is however not punishable by death.
