Favour revealed that her sister died as a result of cluster of blood in the chest from the kicking she allegedly got from her husband, Mr Peter Nwachukwu. She noted that her sister was treated badly by her husband before her untimely death.
She said, “We heard it was cancer that killed Osinachi. She did not die of cancer. The husband, Mr Peter Nwachukwu hit her with his leg on the chest. All this while, he has been beaten her but my sister hides all that she was passing through from us”.
Osinachi sister revealed that the family had counseled her to leave the marriage, but she chose to pray to God so that God can change her husband.
“We told her that they are not divorcing and that it’s just a separation. But she felt that God is against divorce. We told her that separation is not a sin but just for her to stay alive and take care of her children. She will always tell us to relax and that the man will change. So when the man kicked her in the chest, she fell down and he took her to the hospital but he did not even tell us. It was her friend who lives in Ebonyi state that called her twin sister, because Osinachi has a twin sister, to ask ‘did your sister tell you that Peter hit her on the chest? The sister then told her no”.
It was the hitting on the chest that killed her. My brother had to ask the doctor what killed her and the doctor said that there were clusters of blood on her chest. Unfortunately, they did not tell the doctor that she was kicked on the chest because, doctor could have known what to do if he had an idea if what happened. Each time we talked to her, she will be pleading for peace and if we move an act, she will tell us no that we should calm down”, she said.
