Just few weeks ago, Nigerians woke to the devastating news confirming the death of the first Nigerian female Combat Flying Officer Tolulope Arotile, who was reportedly killed following an unfortunate accident, where a vehicle crashed right into the Nigerian Air Force Base in Kaduna. From the report reaching us, the driver and owner of that vehicle that killed the young promising pilot, have been arraigned before the state’s Magistrate Court.

The offenders – David Adejo and Nehemiah Adejo, both pleaded not guilty while on trial on possible four counts of reckless driving, driving without due care, driving without owner’s authorization and driving without driver’s license. They were also charged on an additional single count of neglect conduct while causing danger to person and property.

After hearing the arguments from the counsels of both parties, Emmanuel Benjamin, who is the Chief Magistrate presiding over the case, granted the defendants a bail of one million naira.

DSPA Martins Leo is the major prosecutor in charge of the case.

From what we gathered, the owner and the driver of the vehicle are expected to provide 2 sureties each before the bail can be granted. The provided sureties must have a legal business, reside within the confine of the court, and must produce a valid Bank Verification Number (BVN).

The case, which has drawn a lot of media attention, has been adjourned by the court to August 24 and 25 of this year.
