Osinachi Nwachukwu Burial
Osinachi, the singer of the well-known song “Ekwueme,” passed away on April 8, 2022. On Thursday, June 23, a night of devotion was held in Abuja before the final interment on Saturday.
Yesterday, June 24, a Night of Prayer was also held at Isochi, Umunoci in the Abia state. Due to the allegations, Nwachukwu will go on trial. The burial of her wife won’t be attended by her husband Peter Nwachukwu, though.
Her family alleged that domestic abuse by the late singer’s spouse Peter Nwachukwu caused her death.
For Those Who Missed It – Osinachi Nwachukwu Husband
The husband of the late gospel musician Mrs. Osinachi Nwachukwu, Mr. Peter Nwachukwu, who is accused of killing and beating his wife, is already receiving the full force of the law’s harsh side.
He had previously been accused with 23 counts of offenses, some of which carried the death penalty, including domestic violence, emotional abuse, culpable homicide, etc.
Peter asserted that he did not kill his wife and that lung cancer was to blame for her passing at his court appearance on June 3. He entered a not guilty plea to each of the 23 counts against him.
According to one of the counts, “That you, Peter Nwachukwu, male, did commit an offense to wit: emotional, verbal, and psychological abuse on Mrs. Osinachi Nwachukwu (deceased) by humiliating her and saying things like “you are smelling,” “you are mad,” to her in front of her music crew members, sometime between 14th November 2009 and April 2022 at Aco Estate, opposite police station, Lugbe, Abuja, FCT, within the jurisdiction.
Peter Nwachukwu’s best alternative is to enter a guilty plea because the evidence strongly suggests that he genuinely did abuse and commit acts of domestic violence against his wife, which ultimately resulted in her death and which their children saw and confirmed in their testimony.
Because the court may be tempted to be kind with you and decrease your penalty if you acknowledge to committing the crime for which you are being accused and enter a guilty plea, the court may also decide to punish you less severely.
According to Nigerian law, the punishment for the crime of culpable homicide is death by hanging; but, if Mr. Peter Nwachukwu is fortunate or has a good day in court, he may receive a lower sentence of life in prison.
In order to avoid prejudice or judicial bias against the suspect, Mr. Nwachukwu will be freed if he can present evidence during the trial that contradicts the evidence that has already been obtained to prove that he is innocent or that he did not kill his wife.
