Osinachi’s Death: Pastor Enenche Speaks Out on What he Knows

In the light of the late Nwachukwu Osinachi’s death and the different theories and name-calling spreading around on social media, the lead pastor of the Dunamis International Gospel Centre Worldwide, Abuja, Pastor Paul Enenche, has finally spoken out about what he knows about the late singer and the domestic violence she experienced.

In a 10-minute long video broadcast shared on Youtube and all social media platforms on Wednesday, Dr Enenche revealed that he did not know about the beating and battering she went through at the hands of her husband Peter Nwachukwu.

Pastor Enenche revealed that the only thing he knew about Osinachi was that she had an underlying health challenge because she and her husband came to him over two months ago for prayer after complaining of chest pain.

Pastor Paul Enenche said, “Over two-and-a-half months to three months ago, she came to see me with her husband with complaints of chest pain and respiratory distress. I prayed for her and prayed again.

“When the symptoms did not abate, I counselled that they went to the hospital to help us know exactly what we were dealing with and they asked if I could help them facilitate that process.

“I called our head of the medical team, Dr Osang, who is a consultant paediatrician with the Federal Medical Centre, Keffi, to assist to handle their situation. He called the FMC, Jabi (Abuja), where they attended to her.

“On seeing her, they ordered some examinations and investigations that include CT scan. That was done, and from what the doctors saw, they felt there was a need for further investigation either at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital or the National Hospital, Abuja.”

Osinachi Never Opened Up to me – Pastor Enenche

The pastor further revealed that he called the doctor at the UATH, Dr Akoh Alexander, and told him the situation, she got admitted and was responding to treatment before he heard about her death while he was on a missionary in Cameroun.

Pastor Enenche also added, “Now, if there was domestic violence that led to or coincided with those symptoms she came with two-and-a-half to three months ago, there is no way I would know. If there had been perennial domestic violence, there is no way I would have known.

“The things we are hearing after her passing were very strange to my hearing. Then, I began to ask questions. Then, I asked the twin sister, ‘Were you aware that your sister passed through all these things?’ She said yes, that she knew some of them, but that the majority of them she heard only from those she (Osinachi) confided in.

“I asked her, ‘If you knew, why didn’t you let us know?’ and she said, she (Osinachi) always begged her not to tell the pastor or the church that the man would change and asked for prayers. That continued to happen.”

Enenche also revealed that he asked the son if he knew about it which he affirmed and he further asked why the son never mentioned it to him.

The son said he could not because their dad would always ask them what they told the pastor after every service.

Enenche said the most touching one was when the music producer came to see him in the office two days ago to share his experience with the couple at his studio.

The producer revealed that Mr Nwachukwu once slapped the wife in his studio but he could not react because Osinachi went on her knees pleading with him n not to take action against her husband.

Pastor Paul Enenche insisted that all that he knew about the deceased’s plight in the hands of her husband were brought to his knowledge after her death.

He concluded by advising those going through trying times like this to speak up as the church has zero-tolerance for domestic violence.
