Police officers attached to the Federal Capital Territory Command on Tuesday visited the residence of late gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu, who suffered domestic violence in the Lugbe area of Abuja.
The singer's husband, Peter Nwachukwu, was brought in handcuffs to the house as part of ongoing police investigations.
WuzupNigeria reported that Osinachi died on Friday in an undisclosed hospital after being admitted for days.
Her husband was subsequently arrested on Sunday after the deceased's brother reported the case at the Lugbe Police Division.
The case was transferred from the police division on Monday to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department.
A source 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 FCT Police Public Relations Officer, Josephine Adeh, confirmed that the police were at the house.
Adeh 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.”
