On Sunday, Airman Kalu B.A allegedly shot his girlfriend, Airwoman Solape Oladipupo to death claiming she had affairs with other men.
This occurred at the NAF Tactical Air Command, Makurdi, Benue State.
The duo began dating each other after they met at a parade.
Kalu raised speculations that he might have killed himself as his last post on his Facebook page said: “My last night as an airman. Ask about me later and hear my story, you will be surprised.”
However, this didn’t happen as a statement by Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, the Director of Public Relations and Information of the Nigerian Air Force revealed.
According to PUNCH, the statement read:
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.

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.
