The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) personnel, Air Craft Man (ACM) Kalu Bernard Ayomide who killed his colleague, Air Craft Woman (ACW) Oladipo Dorcas Sholape earlier this year, was yesterday sentenced to death by hanging.
He had gunned down the female colleague who was his lover at the Air Force base in Makurdi on the suspicion that she was cheating on him.
The 22-year-old Ayomide was convicted based on charges of murder, house breaking and attempt to murder one Samuel Onah Echo (a man he allegedly found with the deceased), among other charges.
Delivering the judgement at 8:30 pm yesterday, the President of the 10-man General Court Martial, Group Captain Elisha Bindul, held that the accused was guilty of six out of the eight-count charge against him.
Counsel to the convict, Abimiku Ewuga, of the Ebofuame-Nezam chambers in Makurdi, said the court had delivered its judgment, but that it would be tested at the appellate court.
