According to a report by DailyPost, alleged killer of Nigerian Airforce officer Solape Oladipupo popularly known as Shomzy Shomzy, will be court-martialed on Friday at the NAF base in Makurdi, Benue State.
Lieut Kalu, who has been in custody for over two months at the NAF Tactical Command, Makurdi, would begin the process of court-martial on Friday, after which he would be handed over to the appropriate security agency for prosecution.
The air force authorities had since taken Kalu for psychiatric tests in the course of their investigation.
The NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Olatokunbo Adesanya, confirmed the court-martial, adding that it would “take place shortly.”
He said, “We have a procedure in the military and we don’t jump the process. There is a disciplinary committee which goes through investigations, boards of enquiry, summary of evidence and so on.
“The last stage is the convening of the court-martial. From all indications, we are at that stage now and it will take place between this week and next week. It will take place shortly. The NAF can never sweep the matter under the carpet, because the crime was an embarrassment to the service.”
