The Abuja police command on Tuesday visited the residence of late gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu, in the Lugbe area of the Federal Capital Territory.
According to report, the husband of the deceased, Peter was brought to the house in handcuffs as police continues investigation into the death of Osinachi.
Naija News had earlier reported that Osinachi died in an undisclosed hospital on Friday.
The husband was, however, arrested after the younger brother of the gospel singer reported at the Lugbe Police Division.
The case was transferred from the police division to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department on Monday
A source that spoke with Punch said, “Osinachi’s husband was brought home today (Tuesday) in handcuffs to provide evidence to back his claims.
“He was brought home because he insisted that he did not kill her. He said his late wife was sick and he took her to different hospitals, including the Gwagwalada teaching hospital for treatment. They brought him to provide what he could use to substantiate his claims.”
The development was confirmed by the FCT spokesperson, Josephine Adeh, who confirmed that the police were at the house.
She said, “We went to his house as part of our ongoing investigation on the matter. You don’t expect us to keep him in our custody and go about with the investigation.”
