The Federal Government of Nigeria had pledged yesterday to serve justice for the late famous gospel artiste, Osinachi Nwachukwu.
Osinachi, known for her hit song ‘Ekwueme,’ died at an Abuja hospital after she was being treated some days for an ailment.
After her demise, there have been so many allegations pointing to the fact that she suffered domestic violence.
Osinachi’s husband, accused of being physically abusive, has been arrested by the federal capital territory (FCT) police command.
She was a lead singer at the Dunamis International Gospel Centre and was featured in several popular gospel songs like “Nara Ekele” by Pastor Paul Enenche (Dunamis, Abuja) and “You no dey use me play” by Emma.Her family and husband, Peter Nwachukwu, who doubled as her manager, are yet to issue a statement.
But a statement by the Minister of Women Affairs, Dame Pauline Tallen seen by The Nation, assured that the ministry would prosecute the matter to get justice for Osinachi.
The statement titled, ‘The untimely death of one of Nigeria’s finest gospel artistes’ said: “As with every news of domestic violence which spreads like wildfire, I was woken up to the news of the untimely death of one of Nigeria’s finest female gospel Artistes Osinachi Nwachukwu who was said to have died as a result of cancer on 8th April 2022.
This could have passed as one of those news until new facts started emerging that she died as a result of domestic violence.“The Federal Ministry of Women Affairs under my watch will prosecute this matter to get justice for Osinachi.”
