Osinachi died on April 8, 2022. Peter Nwachukwu, her husband, was arrested and charged with culpable homicide.

NAN reported that the  61-year-old Madu, an Enugu resident, told the court that she and her other children were never allowed to visit the late singer. Only on one occasion when she was ill while being led in evidence by the prosecution counsel.

She said,

“I visited my daughter when I was sick and when we went to the church, Peter left my daughter and I stranded in church while he drove away with the children.

“Peter called me a witch, sent me out of his house and it was a man from Delta State that accommodated me.

“I saw her last in December when she came to Enugu for a programme and before then, there was a time she left her matrimonial home because of the ill-treatment and she stayed with me for a year and three months before Peter came with a pastor to beg that he had turned a new leaf.

“However, after she returned and gave birth to her third child, she called me that she was hungry.

I had to send my son, Chibuzor, with foodstuff to her in Abuja.

“My son, after four days, called me that he was no longer comfortable.

as Peter poured water on him and told him never to help in washing his children’s clothes.

AND HE poured water on Osinachi and her new born baby when she was praying.”

NAN reported that when asked why she never visited her daughter. When she was put to bed in line with Igbo culture, the defense counsel, I.A Aliyu, objected to the question and said it was a leading question.

Aliyu, during cross-examination, asked Madu if she was aware that apart from the ulcer she told the court her daughter had, she had other health challenges.

She replied in the negative and said that she was aware that the matter was investigated. But she did not know the outcome of the investigation as carried out by the police.
