The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali, has said that Peter Nwachukwu, the husband of the late gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu would be charged to court.
The IGP made this known when he received the Minister of Women Affairs, Dame Pauline Kedem Tallen, who paid him a courtesy visit in his office at the Force Headquarters, Abuja, on Wednesday.
The IGP stated that if the post-mortem on the deceased found him culpable, then he will be in court to answer for his sins.
Usman Alkali also said Osinachi’s Death was heartbreaking and the alleged act of maltreatment that led to her eventual death was condemnable, immoral, illegal and contrary to the provisions of the law.
Alkali said, “The untimely death is heart-breaking, particularly as information from sources close to the family and independent witnesses fingered her husband, Peter Nwachukwu, as being responsible for her death.”
Peter Nwachukwu was arrested at about 5 pm on Sunday, April 10, 2022, in their residence at Lugbe, Abuja and has since been in detention at the FCT police command, as investigations are still ongoing.
The IGP revealed that due to the sensitive nature of the case, justice must be served swiftly, as the command has approached the National Hospital, Abuja, for post-mortem examinations on the deceased to ascertain the cause of death.
