Osinachi Nwachukwu’s family announces burial date

Gospel singer Osinachi Nwachukwu will be buried on June 25, 2022, the family recently announced.

Osinachi passed on on April 8 at the National Hospital in Abuja. She is alleged to have died from health complications following years of assault.

According to the BBC Igbo, the late gospel singer’s family will bury her in her father’s compound in Isuochi, Abia state.

Some of her family members also told BBC Igbo that they plan to return the bride price, which her husband, Peter Nwachukwu, paid as part of her marriage rites.

Popularly known for her hit song ‘Ekwueme’, Osinachi was a lead singer at the headquarters of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Abuja. Her death has raised consciousness on the reality of domestic violence.

Meanwhile, Peter Nwachukwu has been charged with 23 counts of culpable homicide.
