Court dismisses no case submission by Osinachi’s  husband

The Federal Capital Territory, FCT, High Court in Wuse Zone 2 has rejected the no-case submission application made by Peter Nwachukwu, the spouse of the late gospel singer, Osinachi. Nwachukwu had filed this application in an attempt to contest the homicide and domestic violence charges brought against him by the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation on June 3, 2022.

Justice Njideka K. Nwosu-Iheme, in her ruling, found that Nwachukwu must provide a defense and dismissed his no-case submission. The judge directed Nwachukwu to present his defense.

Osinachi passed away on April 8, 2022, and her husband was implicated in her death due to allegations of mistreatment and domestic violence.

As a result of these accusations, Nwachukwu was arrested and is currently undergoing prosecution by the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation. Upon being charged, Justice Njideka K. Nwosu-Iheme ordered that the defendant be held in the Kuje Correctional Facility until the case is heard and determined, after he had pleaded not guilty to a 23-count charge related to domestic violence and homicide, among other offenses.

Nwachukwu’s attorney, A. Aliyu, had submitted a no-case application, arguing that the evidence from medical practitioners presented by the prosecution fully absolved his client from the charge of culpable homicide. He pointed out that the medical practitioners testified that the deceased did not suffer any violence that led to her death and that the autopsy revealed that her death was primarily due to outgrowth tumors causing cardiac tamponade and secondary to abnormal tissue growth (cancer).

The lawyer accused Nwachukwu’s in-laws of attempting to frame him, asserting that the autopsy showed no signs of violence on the deceased when it was conducted.

However, during the recent court proceedings, Justice Nwosu-Iheme determined that the prosecution had established a prima facie case against the defendant and ordered him to present his defense. The judge set the next court dates for November 22 and 23 for the defense to be presented.
