OSINACHI: COURT REMANDS HUSBAND IN PRISON

A Federal High Court in the Wuse area of Abuja has remanded Peter Nwachukwu, husband of the late gospel singer, Osinachi, at the Kuje Correctional Facility.

This is pending the hearing and determination of the homicide-related suit instituted against him by the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF).

Justice N.K. Nwosu-Iheme gave the order after he pleaded not guilty to 23 counts bordering on domestic violence and homicide, among others.

The Judge ordered that the suspect be remanded at the correctional facility, while the trial was adjourned to June 16 from 12:00 p.m. and June 17 by 9:00 a.m.

Nwachukwu was arrested by the Police following the death of his wife, Osinachi, as many of her colleagues had accused him of subjecting the deceased to domestic violence. He had since been in detention.

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.
