The CAS made this known on Friday when he received federal cabinet members who came to condole with him over the unfortunate demise of Nigeria’s first female combat helicopter pilot, Flying Officer Tolulope Arotile.

A statement by NAF spokesperson, Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, partly read,

“The CAS noted that Flying Officer Arotile had left her mark in the sands of time which he said proves that when it comes to displaying excellence and adding value to the society, age or gender should not be barriers.
