An Abuja-based preacher, Rev. Uma Ukpai, on Saturday, says the late 'Ekwueme' crooner Osinachi Nwachukwu sang for him on three occasions but failed to intimate him about the alleged domestic violence she suffered.
The president of the Uma Ukpai Evangelistic Association Incorporated disclosed that this ahead of his Easter evangelism session scheduled to take place at the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly in the Guzape District of Abuja.
A concerned Ukpai, however, urged Nigerians not to blame the church for not interceding before her death.
According to him, the incidence could have been averted if the late artiste had voiced out her plight.
Ukpai said the deceased acted like someone who had no one to help her.
He said, “The girl that died sang for me about three times and she never told me she had a problem. As someone popular, if a man was molesting her, she should have raised her voice and attracted help. People like me, I am ready to help her to confront the man.
“I once lost a sister through maltreatment by her husband. I cried and I promised myself that I will not allow another woman to go through that pain. If she had told us, we would have fought for her.
“She acted like someone that has no one to help her. Information is all what we need and we would have confronted him but I know God is already fighting for her.”
