Nigerian gospel singer Chioma Jesus has cried out over the death of her colleague Osinachi Nwachukwu resulting from domestic violence.
The death of Osinachi Nwachukwu came as a big shock to many music lovers, and have been thrown into a state of mourning.
Taking to her Instagram page, Chioma Jesus shared emojis of broken hearts, saying she is so heartbroken and still in disbelief of the sad news.
She wrote: OSI’M I’m so heartbroken and still in disbelief.
Kemi Filani News recalls one Gold Martins, in a post shared on Facebook, alleged Osinachi was suffering domestic violence in her home and confided in some friends about what she was going through at the hands of her husband.
However, being a gospel minister, Osinachi Nwachukwu was afraid of what the world would say if she ended her marriage after four children.
Gold Martins alleged that the church would not be ignorant of what Osinachi Nwachukwu was passing through in her home, stating that if she could tell a total stranger, then her pastor must be aware.
Another Facebook user Gloria Solomon also alleged that she hosted Osinachi Nwachukwu for a program in 2019, and it was a terrible experience with her husband when she arrived for the programme.
According to Gloria Solomon, the late gospel singer shared scary marital issues with her and how she had to sneak out of her home to honour the invitation.
She added that Osinachi’s husband threatened her on the phone and assured her that his wife would not return to his house.
Others who also reacted to the viral post on Facebook affirmed that Osinachi’s husband abused her and had kicked her in the chest, the reason she was hospitalised and died after five days of being on life support.
