Peter Nwachukwu, the husband of the late gospel singer Osinachi, has said that his wife died of lung cancer rather than as a result of any physical abuse at his hands, contrary to what her family and friends have asserted.

Nwachukwu, who was brought before a high court in Abuja on Friday, June 3, and arraigned there, remarked this when he was being led into the courtroom by security personnel.

The late gospel singer, well known for her classic single “Ekweme,” passed away on April 8th, after reportedly spending the previous week in a coma for the five days leading up to her passing away.

Allegations of physical abuse against the dead by her husband, Peter, have been made by a number of people, including close relatives, acquaintances, and children of the deceased.

On the other hand, Peter said in a video that is now doing the rounds online that he is being falsely accused.

“Let me tell the whole world, I have suffered a lot. I have been abandoned. What killed my wife was cancer of the lungs; I didn’t hit my wife. Cancer of the lungs killed my wife, Osinachi Nwachukwu, so I’m suffering for what I do not know”. The-father-of-four said.

Nwachukwu was brought before the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory on a 23-count charge that bordered on culpable homicide on Friday, June 3.

Despite the fact that he pleaded not guilty to the charge against him, Justice Njideka Nwosu-Iheme, in a short ruling, ordered his remand at the Kuje Correctional Centre, while his trial was adjourned to June 16 at 12 pm and June 17 at 9am.
