By Damilare Adeleye

Justice N.K. Nwosu-Iheme of a Federal High Court in Wuse, Abuja, has ordered Peter Nwachukwu, the husband of the late gospel singer, Osinachi to be detained in the Kuje Correctional Facility pending hearing and determination of the homicide-related suit filed by the Attorney General of the Federation against him.

The judge gave the order on Friday after he pleaded not guilty to 23 counts bordering on domestic violence and homicide, among others.

Justice Nwosu-Iheme, however, adjourned the trial to June 16 from 12pm and June 17 by 9am.

“The business for today is for arraignment, accelerated hearing is hereby ordered,” the judge stated

“Defendant should be remanded in Kuje Correctional Facility pending the hearing and determination of this suit,” she said.

Nwachukwu’s wife died on April 8 and many of her colleagues had accused her husband of subjecting the deceased to domestic violence, leading to her death.

Afterwards, he was arrested by the Police and has since been in detention.
