An Air Force personnel, Aircraft Man (ACM), Kalu B.A, who is serving with the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) base in Makurdi on Sunday shot a female colleague dead over suspicion that she was cheating on him.
It was gathered that Kalu had pulled the trigger on his deceased girlfriend, Aircraft Woman, (ACW) Oladipupo S.A early hours of Sunday morning at their quarters in the base when he allegedly caught her with another man said to be a civilian.
It was learnt that the jealous boyfriend also made an attempt to shoot the civilian before his gun failed him during which process the yet-to-be identified Oladipupo’s lover escaped and raised alarm, attracting other soldiers in the neighbourhood to the scene.
Speaking to our correspondent, the Command Public Relations Officer, Wing Commander Emmanuel Iheoma confirmed the incident, saying however that the incident happened between two soldiers.
Iheoma said: “ACM, Kalu B.A shot an Air Woman, Oladipupo at 6.06am this morning. She was taken to 161 NAF hospital located in the base and was later referred to the Benue State Teaching Hospital (BSUTH) in Makurdi where she died.
“Her corpse had been deposited at the NAF hospital mortuary while the accused, Kalu has been arrested and detained at Air Provost Squadron. Investigation to ascertain what actually happened has commenced.”
