The authorities of the Nigeria Air Force, on Tuesday, said that Lt. BA Kalu, the officer who murdered his colleague and lover, Oladipupo Solape, in cold blood, is currently undergoing psychiatric tests to ascertain his mental ability.

It was reported at the weekend that Lt. BA Kalu shot and killed his colleague and lover, Oladipupo Solape over allegation of seeing another man.

Lt. Kalu, an Aircraftman, would be booted out of the service after facing a disciplinary panel and would be handed over to the police to be prosecuted for the murder.

The Director of Public Relations and Information of the Nigeria Air Force, NAF, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, confirmed the psychiatric test being carried on the officer, saying the Air Force would also ascertain whether the suspect acted under the influence of drugs.

Group Captain Famuyiwa added that the family of the deceased Air Force woman had been contacted and condoled with.

“If somebody wrote down a note and also committed himself to such act, we have to be sure if he is mentally stable or not.

“Therefore, there is a psychiatrist that is attached to him for a test. I also understand that some of his blood samples were taken to ascertain whether he had used drugs.

“Kalu will remain in the service until a disciplinary panel set up on the matter comes up with its decision. We know there are several offenses against the state, including this one, which is murder.

“But the air force has set up its own disciplinary procedure. A board is investigating and will decide the punishments for the suspect. The girl’s parents have been contacted and the NAF has commiserated with the family.”
