Nigerian Air Force officer Ben Kalu who killed his girlfriend Sholape Oladipupo in Markurdi, Benue state on March 13, is set to face court-martial on Friday, May 19.
The late Sholape was also an Air Force official.
Kalu shot his lover Sholape in the neck because he suspected she was cheating on him with other men.
He left a suicide note titled “MY FUCKING NOTE” threatening to kill himself after he killed his lover, but he chickened out.
The note read: “It’s a privilege for me writing this note because it would be read by most of men.
“It’s a love story of a guy falling in love with a wrong witch who pretended to be good in my eyes and in the eyes of my loving mother. Am a simple guy who never partake in namevarious (nefarious) activities. Most individuals say I have a future here it is. Am a guy who pull two rounds in a witch and one round to my fucking body.
“For it is said he who kill by the sword shall die by it.
“Most idiot would insult me, yes! If I were to be in there shoes I wouand pdo the same likewise if they were to be in my shoe, they would even pull more than three rounds on the witch.
“Call me crazy lover who died for heartbreak.”
Kanu was later arrested and placed in military detention.
Kalu has been ordered to take a psychiatric test to determine if he committed the crime because he is mentally unstable.
