“I won’t say much now, I’ll let the former NDDC director (AUNTY Joy) who did everything possible to stop this from happening talk 1st, but it still happened. We tried to stop this,” he added about what killed Osinachi Nwachukwu.

Also, in a live Instagram video, Frank Edwards alleged that Osinachi’s husband abused her on several occasions.

He said, “One time in a studio, this man slapped her just because she wanted to record the song in Igbo against his will. She does not do anything on her own.

“She would say, please beg my husband. She was at his mercy. I didn’t know the intensity of what she was going through; I didn’t know how somebody would be jealous of the wife he claimed to love.

“There are a lot of stories where people told her this and that, but what I know was that the control was too much. The other time somebody wanted me to get her for an event, and I contacted her, but she said ‘beg my husband.’

“She couldn’t even tell people what she was going through. I only got to know because Aunty Joy contacted me to promote her song. That was when I got a glimpse into what was happening.”

Another gospel artiste, Asu Ekiye, called for the arrest of her husband.

He said, “If what I hear about domestic abuse is anything to go by, then I hereby endorse the call for the arrest of the husband of Osinachi immediately for questioning.”

A woman, who claimed to be her friend, Chidinma Ezego, alleged that the late Osinachi told her the husband made her children flog her.

She said, “The husband has been beating and maltreating this woman, but she’s been dying in silence. Now, he kicked the woman on her chest and she’s been on life support for five days and finally died. Now, the man has been arrested and I pray he rots in jail.  Remember how he tied her up and asked the children to beat her up with cane. She told me this.”

Osinachi husband while speaking from police custody, said his late wife had been ill since November last year. He said he first took her to Federal Medical Center (FMC), later to Gwagwalada General hospital, and then to National hospital, where she finally died. He, however, failed to disclose the nature of her illness.

At about 11a.m on Monday, April 11, 2021, Peter Nwachukwu was handcuffed and escorted into the police van stationed in front of the Lugbe police station in Abuja.

The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) said they were driving him to their house to provide evidence of the hospitals he claimed to have taken his deceased wife to for treatment.
