Godwin Madu, the brother of late gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu, has given a heartbreaking account of how the singer’s husband, Peter Nwachukwu, prevented her family from taking care of her.
Speaking at the Federal Capital Territory High Court in Abuja, Godwin recounted how Peter physically and verbally abused the singer, who died on April 8 2022 from injuries she allegedly sustained while being assaulted by her husband
Godwin said Peter didn’t only subject Osinachi to perpetual fear but also disrespected and abused their mother, himself (Godwin), and her twin sister. According to him, Peter once called Osinachi’s mother a witch and sent her packing while she was sick.
While being led in evidence by the prosecution counsel, Godwin added that when Osinachi was hospitalized, Peter prevented her family from seeing her and used a security guard to send him out when he insisted on seeing his sister.

“In 2019 August, my mum was sick, Osinachi begged Peter for my mum to come over, but he refused. Then Osinachi went to Pastor Enenche’s wife, Becky, of Dunamis Church, to prevail on Peter to allow Osinachi’s mum to come down to Abuja for treatment.
So, Becky met with Peter and begged him, before he accepted. Then when she came down to Abuja. The first day Peter sent his son, Ebube, to go get water for him with a cup. When he went to get the water, as a child, the water spilt from the cup. Peter beat Ebube mercilessly, just because the boy made a very little mistake.
