Airforce Sentences Airman to Death by Hanging for Killing Lover

End of the road has come for a jealous young Nigerian Air Force, Airman Kalu Bernard, who shoot his lover, Solape Oladipupo, aka Shomzy Shomzy, dead on March 12, 2017, over strained relationship.
The Nigerian Airforce Tuesday night passed a judgment on him – to die by hanging – for the killing.
Reading out the 70-page court findings, which lasted for about two hours, the Judge Advocate, Flight Lieutenant M.A. Umoh, listed the eight-count charges against 21-year-old Kalu to include murder, house breaking, impersonation, attempted murder, among others.
Kalu had on March 12, 2017, killed Oladipupo at her Corporal and Below Quarters, Compound 9, Air Force Base, Makurdi, on the suspicion that she was in a love relationship with another man.
He had broken into Oladipupo’s home before shooting her in the neck at close range.
The President of the court, Gp. Capt. Elisha Bindul, who found the accused guilty in six out of the eight counts, sentenced him to death by hanging, subject to the confirmation of the conveying authority.
The defence counsel, Abimiku Ewuga, had earlier begged the court to temper justice with mercy, saying the accused was his family breadwinner.
Ewuga later told reporters that he would appeal the judgement.
