OSINACHI NWACHUKWU: Jubilations, As Court Passes Judgement On Husband, Peter Nwachukwu
The joy of many citizens of Nigeria knows no bounds as the Federal Government has filed 23-count charges against Peter Nwachukwu, husband of the late popular gospel singer, Osinachi, who died on April 8 this year consequent on the former’s frequent alleged assault.
It would be recalled that the “Ekwueme” crooner’s untimely death was reportedly caused by her husband, who was accused of physically abusing her.
Moreso, several testimonies emerged from Peter’s children, Osinachi’s sisters, and parents which proved that Peter was an abusive man.
Consequently, the husband of the deceased was, therefore, charged under sections 104 and 379 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015, by the Attorney-General of the Federation.
The defendant was charged with culpable homicide contrary to section 221 of the Penal Code which is punishable with death by hanging.
Some of the testimonies accused Peter of beating and stomping her wife’s abdomen on several occasions.
The accusations were so serious that even his children confirmed that Peter Nwachukwu used to beat their mom when she was alive.
