Reports have emerged that Osinachi Nwachukwu, a popular gospel singer, is died from domestic violence and not throat cancer as earlier claimed.
According to the information gathered from some of the singer’s friends, she was allegedly kicked in the chest by her husband, Peter Nwachukwu, and left an injury that placed her on five days of life support which eventually led to her untimely death.
They revealed, in a series of Facebook posts and WhatsApp status messages, that Osinachi had been a victim of domestic violence for a long time.
Lifestyle blogger, Amanda Chisom, who happens to be her friend, accused her husband of being “a control freak who is only interested in maximising profit from the singer’s voice”.
Another close friend said the singer’s husband took control of her phones, social media accounts, bank accounts, and received payments for the singer’s ministrations.
According to gospel artiste, Gold Martins, who shared screenshots of those who knew the singer verifying the domestic violence story, claimed that the victim personally confided in a mutual friend, explaining her experience and inability to leave.
Gold quoted the singer as saying:
“If not for the church and what people will say, I would have left this marriage.”
One of the friends said the singer told her of how the husband would tie her up and ask the children to “beat her up with a cane. She told me this.”
According to the friend, “He would lock her up in the house even on days when she had important concerts and programmes that she had already been paid for.
“I hosted her in one of my programmes, The INVASION in 2019. It was a terrible experience with the husband on the phone and then when she arrived, she shared scary marital issues.
“She had to sneak out of the house to honour the invitation. The husband threatened me on the phone and assured me that the wife would not return to his house if she attended the event.”
On Friday, April 8, it was announced that Osinachi has passed away, in a hospital in Abuja, following which her husband was said to have been allegedly arrested for her death.
The singer, who already has four children for her husband was said to have previously walked out of the abusive marriage but through the intervention of Pastor Paul Eneche, founder and Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, they were reconciled.
