The parents of the slain Nigerian Air Force

personnel, Solape Oladipupo, who was killed

by her colleague and jealous lover, Bernard

Kalu, has revealed that their daughter ended

the relationship after they told her about a

prophecy they received in church, which

warned the deceased against engaging in any

romantic relationship in her place of work,



Daily Sun reports.



Mr. and Mrs. Tolani Oladipupo also revealed

that the deceased already has a five year-old

daughter.



Solape was 16 years when she gave birth to

the girl, who currently lives with them.

Solape, who was popularly known as Shomzy

was murdered by her jealous lover over the

suspicion of infidelity in Makurdi, Benue State

on March 12th. She was buried last Thursday,

at the cemetery in Ojo Military Barracks, Ojo,

Lagos. Her mother collapsed and fainted as

the remains was being lowered.



Speaking with Sunday Sun in Ijebu Ode, Ogun

State, Mrs. Oladipupo said that the family

received a prophecy warning the deceased

against engaging in any relationship with

anybody at her base in Makurdi.



She further revealed that her daughter was

planning on ending the relationship shortly

before she was murdered.

.

"We were given a prophecy in our church to

tell her not to ever date anyone where she

worked and we told her. That was when she

decided to part ways with Kalu. We didn't know

it was going to lead to this. Even one of her

uncles called her to tell her. I think that was

how she took the bold step to tell Kalu she

wasn't interested in the relationship anymore.

We didn't know it would result in this. Her

father and I gave her a stern warning not to

ever get involved in any romantic relationship

with anyone within her base," she said.



Speaking in an emotion-laden voice shortly

after Solape's remains were interred, the

deceased's father, Mr. Tolani Oladidupo, who

described her death as a huge loss said getting

justice for the deceased would be a major

source of succour for the family.



"Her death is a huge loss to us and we can't

just express how much of pains and agony we

share as a family over the death of Solape.



You can see that I am just trying to be a man,

pacifying my wife and children. I insist that

what can provide a kind of succour to us as a

family is to see government do something

about the case.



"I can say her death is our own sacrifice to the

sovereignty of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.



We cannot wake her up again and I am not

here to trade my late daughter, but the

government should do the needful," he said,

insisting on death penalty for his daughter's

killer.





How did you get the news of your

daughter's death?



When I received the new I became

unconscious and fainted immediately. When I

was resuscitated, it was still like a dream to

me. I still spoke with her the day before she

was murdered. I have lost over 70% weight,

right now. When we were talking that night,

she even said was going to speak with her

daughter, and she did.





You mean she had a child already?



Yes (showing our reporter the child).

What's the name of her child?

Her name is Bisola Ogunyemi.

And as it is now, how are you taking the

loss?





The person who killed my daughter won't go

unpunished. He has said he was going to die

too and he should be made to die. In a

situation where Kalu's family hires a lawyer to

defend him, I will view it as an attempt to

cheat us. I know justice would still prevail.



Did you have any premonition that such a

thing would happen?

I have never thought I would lose anyone of

them at all. In our church, we were given a

prophecy to tell her not to ever date anyone

where she worked and we told her. That was

when she decided to part ways with Kalu. We

didn't know it was going to lead to this. Even

one of her uncles called her to tell her. I think

that was how she took the bold step to tell

Kalu she wasn't interested in the relationship

any more. We didn't know it would result in

this. Her father and I gave her a stern warning

not to ever get involved in any romantic

relationship with anyone within her base. That

was the prophecy we had. Yes, she told me

about Kalu and that was why we had to accept

one Sola, who was always calling me, although

I have never met him.



Would you say you regret allowing your

daughter join the military?

I won't say that. No regret because the people

there are humans too. There is no job that

doesn't come with its own risk. The rest there

are humans too and some even grew very old

on the job and retired. She had got an

admission into the Adeniran Ogunsanya

College of Education before she was recruited

into the Nigerian Air Force.



So, you don't have any regret whatsoever?

No, I don't have any regret. In fact, I don't

mind if the government can compensate the

family by recruiting some of her siblings into

the military.
