Gospel singer, Osinachi, laid to rest in Abia

The remains of late gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu, were laid to rest in Amakpoke Umuaku community, Abia State, on Saturday.

Osinachi, who was popularly known for her song “Ekwueme”, died on April 8, 2022 aged 48.

She was said to have suffered from an internal injury in her chest following alleged maltreatment by her husband.

The police arrested Mr Nwachukwu on April 11, after Osinachi’s younger brother reported a case of culpable homicide against him.

The father-of-four appeared before the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, on Friday, where he was charged with 23-count by the federal government.

The case, with charge number CR/199/2022, was filed at the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, on May 20, 2022, by the Head, Sexual and Gender-Based Violence, Department of Public Prosecutions of the Federation, Ministry of Justice, Yewande Gbola-Awopetun.

He was charged under sections 104 and 379 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015, by the Attorney-General of the Federation.

The federal government alleged that the defendant deprived the deceased of her liberty by restraining her movement and locking her up in the house.

The prosecution also accused the defendant of subjecting the deceased to emotional, verbal and psychological abuse, contrary to Section 14(1) of the VAP Act, 2015.

The prosecution counsel alleged that Osinachi’s husband forcefully isolated and separated her from her family by preventing her mother and siblings from visiting her matrimonial home.
