The accused husband of the late Nigerian gospel singer Osinachi, Peter Nwachukwu, has allegedly escaped from prison.
Mr. Nwachukwu got his chance and took it during last Tuesday’s terrorist attack.
The unexpected attack happened at the Kuje Medium Security Correctional Centre in Abuja.
The Nigeria Correctional Service (NCoS) reported a total of 879 inmates escaped from the facility following the attack.
Sadly, multiple security sources on Tuesday, July 12, confirmed that the husband of the late gospel singer was among the escaped inmates.
“During our roll call yesterday, we discovered that the husband of the late gospel singer was missing,” a senior prison official said.
Osinchi died on April 8, after which colleagues of the singer accused her husband, Peter, of subjecting the deceased to domestic violence.
The late singer reportedly suffered a kick in the chest, leading to a blood clot that eventually killed her.
Nigerians have registered their suspicions as they question why Peter’s name wasn’t on the released list of missing prisoners.
Not too long ago, the late gospel singer Osinachi was buried on Saturday, June 25, 2022, in Abia State, Nigeria.
Mr. Nwachukwu denied all allegations by her children, family, and colleagues that he battered her to death.
