The Nigerian government has taken legal action against the husband of Osinachi Nwachukwu, a gospel singer who died just this year.

Mrs. Yewande Gbola-Awopetu, who is the Head of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence in the Department of Public Prosecutions of the Federation at the Ministry of Justice, filed the case against Peter Nwachukwu on May 20, 2022.

Osinachi Nwachukwu, a gospel singer, died on April 8 in a hospital in Abuja.

There were rumors that she had died of cancer after she passed away, but her family quickly put an end to the rumors.

In an interview with Vanguard Nigeria, the late singer’s older sister said that Osinachi died because she had a clump of blood in her chest because her husband, Mr. Peter Nwachukwu, had kicked her in that area.

She said that her sister’s husband had hurt her sister many times.

Police looked into the death of the gospel singer, but her husband said he had nothing to do with it.
