Osinachi: Court sends ‘Ekwueme’ singer’s husband to Kuje prison

Osinachi: Court sends ‘Ekwueme’ singer’s husband to Kuje prison

Peter Nwachukwu, the late gospel singer Osinachi’s husband, has been detained in Kuje prisons by Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court in Wuse.

Nwachukwu will be held in detention until the end of his trial, according to Justice Ngozi Nwosu-Iheme.

OSINACHI AND HUSBAND

Despite Nwachukwu’s plea of not guilty to the 23-count accusation against him, she issued the order.

Following the death of his wife, the Federal Government filed charges ranging from domestic abuse to homicide, among other things.

She granted an accelerated hearing and postponed the start of the trial until June 16 at 12 p.m.

Osinachi died as a result of suspected domestic violence by Nwachukwu.

The government claimed that he contravened Sections 104 and 379 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015; Section 221 of the Penal Code; and the Violence Against Person’s Prohibition Act  2015.

Some of the counts (such as culpable homicide) recommend death penalty, one-year jail term or fine (VAPP Act), among others.

Part of the charges read: “That you, Peter Nwachukwu, 56, male, on the 8th of April, 2022, at Aco Estate, opposite police station, Lugbe, Abuja, FCT, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, did commit an offence to wit: culpable homicide punishable with death in that you caused the death of Mrs Osinachi Nwachukwu by your various acts of violence and aggravated assault with the knowledge that her death would be the probable consequence of your acts.

“Statement of offence: Emotional, verbal and psychological abuse contrary to Section 14(1) of the Violence Against Persons (Prohibition) Act, 2015 and punishable under the same section of the Act.

“Particular of offence: That you, Peter Nwachukwu, male, sometime between 14th November 2009 and April 2022 at Aco Estate, opposite police station, Lugbe, Abuja, FCT, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, did commit an offence to wit: emotional, verbal and psychological abuse on Mrs Osinachi Nwachukwu (deceased) by humiliating her and making utterances like ‘you are smelling,’ ‘you are mad,’ to her in the presence of her music crew members.”
