In a post on his official Facebook page, Frank Edwards suggested that Nwachukwu may have died out of domestic abuse by her husband.
He suggested that a former director of the Niger Delta Development Commission tried to save the situation before the sad incident.
“So that unreasonable human being finally put off a shining light 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 first, but it still happened we tried to stop this,” he said.
According to Facebook influencer, Maria Ude Nwachi, a friend to the deceased identified as Chidinma, also revealed that Osinachi suffered constant abuse by her husband.
Chidinma claimed that the singer was beaten hard recently and was rushed to the hospital where she was on a life support machine for five days before giving up the ghost.
She also gave instance of an incident where the deceased was tied up by her husband, who instructed her children to flog her with canes.
Chidinma further revealed that Osinachi’s husband has since been arrested.
Maria Ude Nwachi wrote; “A Friend of late Mrs Osinachi Nwachukwu of Ekwueme fame, has come out to say that the gospel musician died as a result of domestic abuse she suffered in the hands of her husband.
“According to her, he hit her hard that some weeks back and she was rushed to the hospital where she stayed five days on life support before she died.
“She also said that there was a time he tied her and instructed her children to cane her.
“He has since been arrested.
“Her friend’s name is Chidinma Ego. P.S: Please do note that this information has not been proven to be true but the lady claims she is her friend. – Chukwunonso Nzekwe II.”
One Gold Martins, who claims to be a friend of the deceased, also alleged that Osinachi Nwachukwi had been suffering domestic violence in her home and had confided in some friends about what she was going through in the hands of her husband.
But being a gospel minister, Osinachi was afraid of what the world would say if she ended her marriage after four children.
Another Facebook user, Gloria Solomon, also alleged that she hosted Osinachi Nwachukwu to a programme in 2019, and it was a terrible experience with her husband when she arrived for the programme.
According to Solomon, the late gospel singer shared scary marital issues with her and how she had to sneak out of her home to honour the invitation.
The Facebook user added that Osinachi’s husband threatened her on the phone and assured her that his wife would not return to his house.
