Contrary to reports that he killed himself, the jealous young personnel of the Nigerian Air Force who shot and killed his girlfriend and course mate in fit of rage and jealousy has been arrested.
Kalu B.A actually went into hiding after he shot dead his girlfriend, Solape Oladipupo, dead on Saturday at the NAF Tactical Air Command, Makurdi, Benue State.
It was learnt that the lady, popularly referred to as Shomzy, was allegedly shot dead by Kalu after he accused her of having a romantic affair with other men.
According to Punch, the two air force officers had had an affair for some months, after they met at a military parade. After the killing, it was speculated that Kalu also shot himself because of his post on his Facebook page, which read;
“My last night as an airman. Ask about me later and hear my story, you will be surprised.”
The NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, said investigations were ongoing into the matter to ascertain the motives of the suspect. He said;
“An airman and an airwoman were involved. They had a love relationship which resulted in the shooting. We do not yet know what transpired between them.
“She was initially rushed to NAF hospital, but when it was beyond their control, she was transferred to the state hospital where she died. The body has been recovered to our base now. “The boy (Kalu) has been arrested. He did not die.
The post on the social media is mere speculation. He is alive and in custody. Investigations are ongoing into the incident. We will unravel the circumstances that led to the incident.”
Meanwhile, friends of the late Oladipupo took to her Facebook page to mourn her, saying that Kalu must be prosecuted for the killing.
Her last three Facebook posts suggested she was optimistic about life and thankful to God for all she had achieved. Her last post was on Thursday, March 9. Along with pictures of her in bed, she wrote;
“Those who said “WHO ARE YOU”will come and say “HOW ARE YOU”…..
