Court remands gospel singer Osinachi's husband in Kuje prison (Updated: 4 weeks ago)


The Federal Capital Territory High Court sitting in Wuse, Abuja has remanded Peter Nwachukwu, husband of the late popular gospel singer, Osinachi, in Kuje Correctional Centre. 

 

The Federal Government arraigned Nwachukwu on Friday, June 3. 

 

He is facing 23-count bordering on culpable homicide, verbal, physical abuse and wrongful confinement, wrongful restraint, economic abuse, forced isolation, emotional and psychological abuse and attempt to commit culpable homicide, among others.

 

Nwachukwu will be in prison pending the hearing and determination of the homicide-related suit instituted against him by the Attorney General of the Federation.

 

The presiding judge, Justice N.K. Nwosu-Iheme gave the order on Friday after he pleaded not guilty to 23 charges bordering on domestic violence and homicide, among others.

 

She ordered that the suspect be remanded at the correctional facility while the trial was adjourned to June 16 and June 17.

 

The 42-year-old gospel singer died on April 8, after spending days at a hospital. Her husband was accused of subjecting her to domestic violence, which led to her death.

 

Following the incident, Nwachukwu was arrested by the police and he has since been in detention.

 

Nwachukwu was charged under sections 104 and 379 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015 and culpable homicide contrary to section 221 of the Penal Code which is punishable with death.
