Osinachi Nwachukwu’s Children Attend Father’s Court Hearing

Osinachi Nwachukwu’s Children Attend Father’s Court Hearing (Updated: 3 months ago)


Two out of the three children of deceased gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu attended the court hearing of their father Peter Nwachukwu, on Monday, June 20.

Mr Nwachukwu is facing charges of culpable homicide in a Federal Capital Territory High Court.

Also in court on Monday were Osinachi’s mother and twin sister.

When the matter slated for hearing before Justice Njideka Nwosu-Iheme came up, the counsel that represented the defendant during his arraignment, Victor Abakpa, prayed the court to adjourn the matter until Tuesday, as another lawyer from a different chamber just informed him that he was taking over the case.

Abakpa further stated that he was equally served additional proof of evidence in the court just before the court started the day’s proceedings.

I.A Aliyu, on his part, informed the court that he was briefed by the defendant on June 18 to take over the case.

The court therefore stepped down the case to 11am in order for counsel to align themselves and come proper before it.

Nwachukwu was arraigned on June 3 and was remanded in Kuje Correctional Centre after he pleaded not guilty to the charges filed against him by the attorney-general of the federation.

He was subsequently remanded pending the hearing and determination of the 23-count charge bordering on domestic violence and homicide instituted against him.

The 56-year-old was arrested by the police after his wife died on April 8 following widespread allegations of domestic violence.
