The Nigerian Air Force has confirmed the arrest of an air force man known as KALU, for allegedly shooting dead his girlfriend, SOLAPE OLADIPUPO over the weekend in Markudi, Benue state.
The incident happened over the weekend 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.
Our correspondent gathered that 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.”
It was, however, learnt that KALU had been arrested and in military detention.
Director of Public Relations and Information of the Air Force, Group Captain AYODELE FAMUYIWA, said investigations were ongoing into the matter to ascertain the motives of the suspect.
Friends of the late OLADIPUPO took to her Facebook page to mourn her, saying that KALU must be prosecuted for the killing.
