You have a case to answer- Court rules against late gospel singer, Osinachi’s husband’s no case submission

Justice Njideka Nwosu-Iheme of the Federal Capital Territory High Court in Wuse Zone 2, on Tuesday, 17th of October, 2023 dismissed the no-case submission filed by Peter Nwachukwu, the husband of the late gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu.

Through the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation (OAGF), the government dragged Nwachukwu before the court on a 23-count charge bordering on domestic violence and culpable homicide. Nwachukwu had through his counsel, I. A Aliyu, had on September 27, filed a no-case submission before the prosecution closed its case and urged the court to exonerate him from the charges filed against him.

In the course of proving its case against Nwachukwu, the prosecution had called 17 witnesses, including the late gospel artist’s sister, children, doctors, and police personnel from the Lugbe division, Abuja, among others.

While arguing his client’s no-case submission, Aliyu had urged the court to discount the evidence of the prosecution witnesses, arguing that the evidence of the medical doctor brought by the prosecution completely exonerated Nwachukwu of culpable homicide. While saying that the deceased’s children were tutored to testify against their father before the court, the defence counsel added that the defendant’s in-laws tried hard before the court to frame him.
