The husband of the late popular gospel artiste, Osinachi, Peter Nwachukwu, has reportedly been arrested by the police over the death of his wife.
The 42-year-old artiste known for the popular song “Ekwueme” died on Friday after spending days at an undisclosed hospital in Abuja.
Since her death, both colleagues and friends of Osinachi who was a lead singer at the Dunamis International Headquarters, Abuja, accused her husband of constantly beating her.
According to The Punch, a police source said Peter was arrested on Sunday afternoon.
The source said, “A young man who claimed to be a relative of the late woman came to report the matter at the station and the police went to arrest him at his residence.”
The FCT Police Public Relations Officer, Josephine Adeh, confirmed the development.
She said, “He is now in our custody. The younger brother of the deceased reported the matter and we have commenced investigation.”
