A comic book titled ‘Girls Can Fly’ has been launched in honour of late flying officer Tolulope Arotile, Nigeria’s first-ever female combat helicopter pilot who died in an accident on July 14, 2020, in Kaduna State at the age of 24.
The Heroes Comic Series was launched on Friday by the Chief of Air Staff (CAS) of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF), Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar at an event organised by the Ministry of Youths and Sports in partnership with ‘I Choose Life Foundation.’
The comic book is for children between ages 3 -13. It is written to serve as a source of encouragement to young Nigerians to make choices that will benefit them and their nation.
It is also aimed to be a source of inspiration to the girl-child.
