Gospel Singer, Osinachi’s Husband, Breaks Silence From Police Custody
Peter Nwachukwu, Husband of late gospel singer, Osinachi, has denied the domestic violence allegations leveled against him.
Recall, the popular singer died on Friday after allegedly being in a coma for five days following assaults she received from her husband.
Speaking from police custody, Peter Nwachukwu said his late wife has been battling an illness since November last year. He added that he first took her to Federal Medical Center (FMC), later to Gwagwalada General hospital, and then to National hospital, where she finally died.
He, however, failed to disclose the nature of her illness.
Following his confession, Mr. Nwachukwu was led in handcuffs and taken back to their family house to provide evidence of the hospitals he claimed to have taken his deceased wife to for treatment.
An autopsy has also been carried out on the late singer’s corpse to ascertain the real cause of her death.
While the police await the autopsy test results, there are confirmed reports that Mr. Nwachukwu has been transferred to the force headquarters in Abuja for further interrogations.
New York Lieutenant Governor Arrested Over Alleged Campaign Finance Fraud
New York Lt. Gov. Brian Benjamin has been picked by authorities to face campaign finance fraud-related charges in connection with a past campaign, two people familiar with the matter said Tuesday.
Benjamin is expected to appear in Manhattan federal court later this week.
Governor Kathy Hochul’s office couldn’t immediately be reached for comment on the arrest, nor could a representative for Benjamin, NBC New York reports.
His arrest comes after reports that Manhattan federal prosecutors and the FBI were investigating whether Benjamin knowingly engaged in a campaign finance fraud scheme.
Subpoenas were issued in connection with the investigation, two sources familiar with the subpoenas said at the time.
The investigators also looked into whether Benjamin helped dole out state money to contributors and/or their projects as part of the alleged fraud.
A spokesman for the U.S. attorney and a spokesman for the FBI both previously declined WNBC requests for comment regarding the investigation into Benjamin.
