Osinachi’s husband remanded in prison custody


The husband of late popular gospel singer, Osinachi, Peter Nwachukwu has been remanded in Kuje Correctional Centre following his arraignment in court today.

According to Vanguard, Osinachi’s husband was arraigned before an Abuja High Court on a 23-count charge that bordered on culpable homicide, which is punishable with death.

He pleaded not guilty before the court presided over by Justice Njideka Nwosu-Iheme.

In a short ruling, the judge ordered his remand at the Kuje Correctional Centre and adjourned the case till June 16 and 17 for trial.

You will recall that Osinachi died on April 8 this year after spending some time on life support.

This led to revelations by family, friends and church members that her husband allegedly subjected her to domestic abuse.

Specifically, there were allegations that Peter forcefully ejected her from her matrimonial home.

Also, he allegedly pushed her out of a moving vehicle at a time.

The Federal Government claimed that the prolonged assault could lead to her death.
