Late NAF pilot Taiwo Asaniyi and fiancee

Following the death of her fiancé, Bunmi Oladuntoye who was engaged to the late Nigerian Air Force pilot Flt. Lt. Taiwo Asaniyi has opened up in an emotional tribute revealing the moments they shared together.

Asaniyi was one of the pilots of the ill-fated Beachcraft 350 aircraft which crashed near the Kaduna International Airport last Friday.

Tweeting via @bunmioladuntoye on Sunday, Ms Oladuntoye said she did not regret accepting his marriage proposal.

She wrote, “Femi, I have no regrets walking this journey with you. You asked me to be your wife last year in August and I gave you a resounding yes.

“One of the last things you said to me was to keep on being humble and continue to give. You were a giver, oh you were such a giver.

“Femi mi, Olowo ori mi. Who will hype me now when I make a new hair? Who will call me fine girl? Who will call me the most beautiful woman in the world?”

She added, “I have cried and cried and cried. People have spoken to me, James and Kamal have told me you wouldn’t want me to be sad and I know that for sure because whenever I am sad and I cry, you will be like ‘what’s the meaning of this now?’

“The world deserves to know how great you are. To Nigerians and the world at large, my fiancé, Flt Lt. T.O. Asaniyi was a great man who dedicated his life to serving this country.

“Please pray for him, pray for his family and pray for me. Adigun miiiiii, Femi miiiiii, Hot choco miiii sun re o!!!! I want your blue diary so bad because you had lots of intelligent things written in there.”

Asaniyi and 10 other military officers who died in the crash were buried at the National Military Cemetery in Abuja on Saturday.
