Damilola Adegboye, has now stated that the family isn’t convinced she died in a freak accident and is demanding a full-scale investigation into the cause of the accident.
She said on the day of the incident, she and Arotile were sleeping in a room before she received a call.
“A call came into her phone which she picked but from the way they spoke, I knew the caller must be a senior officer calling her to come to Air force base. She felt reluctant and I offered to drop her off,” she said.
“One hour later, I read online that something serious had happened to her. I couldn’t believe that somebody I just dropped off is dead.”
