Amarachi Eze, the twin sister of the late gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu, has cried out to the public for financial assistance, saying that her sister’s children need help.
In a recent video posted on Youtube, Amarachi who is also a gospel singer revealed that they have been battling many challenges including their inability to pay their rent and cater for the needs of the four children Osinachi left behind.
In the video she said: “I am Amarachi Grace Eze, late Osinachi’s twin sister. The death of my sister left me and my family heart broken. And she also left behind four kids and she was the one helping our family. The court served us a letter that their rent expired 13th of April 2022, and they are expected to leave the house.
“So far, the Honourable Minister for Women Affairs has rendered help to us. She followed up the case to see that my late sister gets justice. She has written to 2 South East governors (name withheld) and their wives but no response. We need help desperately to take care of the four children. Yes we need justice but her children’s welfare is important. Help us please“.
Amarachi and Osinachi were part of the defunct gospel group Glorious Singers known for songs like ‘Jigidemaka’, ‘Somebody is Knocking’, ‘Jerusalem’ and ‘Onyeoma’. The group disbanded after some of their members decided to pursue solo careers.
Osinachi died on April 8 at the National Hospital, Abuja. She is alleged to have been subjected to years of domestic abuse.
Meanwhile, a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Wuse, on Friday June 3, remanded Peter Nwachukwu, the husband of Osinachi, at the Kuje Correctional Facility, pending the hearing and determination of the homicide-related suit instituted against him by the attorney general of the federation.
Justice N.K. Nwosu-Iheme gave the order after he pleaded not guilty to 23 counts bordering on domestic violence and homicide, among others.
