The Head Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Pastor Paul Eneche, has said that he was not aware that late gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu suffered from domestic violence which led to her death. The popular preacher released a video on his Facebook page on Wednesday night to corroborate his claim.

Enenche said, “Over two or three months ago, she (Osinachi) came to see me with her husband with complaints of chest pain and respiratory distress. I prayed for her, and prayed again.

“When the situation did not abate, I counselled them to go to the hospital to help us know what we were dealing with and they asked if I could help facilitate that process. I called the head of our medical team, Dr Osang, who is a Consultant Paediatrician at the Federal Medical Centre, Keffi, to assist with their situation and he called his colleagues at the Federal Medical Centre, Jabi, where they attended to them.

“On seeing her, they ordered some investigations after examination, and that included a CT scan. That was done and from what the doctors saw, they felt that there was a need for further investigation, either at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital or at the National Hospital in Abuja.

“I called the doctor, a consultant pulmonologist respiratory physician at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Dr Akoh Alexander, and told him the situation, and he asked that they come to see him immediately; and they went to the Gwagwalada Teaching Hospital.
“After they had examined her there and saw the situation, they felt there was a need for histology and biopsy of the lung tissue and they asked that she should go to the National Hospital to get that done.

“I again called Dr Jubril, who is the Head of Pathology and Consultant Histopathologist of the National Hospital Abuja, and reported the issue to him so he could help us with the investigation and find out what exactly happened and they continued the management.

“The histology was done, and from what I saw at that time, the picture was much milder than what the CT scan earlier showed. So, we felt very happy that, at least, there was a relief. She called me daily and we prayed with her, she reported progress; the point came when she did not need oxygen anymore.

“According to what she said to me one night, they checked her oxygen perfusion and it was 100 per cent, and we were very excited about that progress.

“That was the point it was before we went for the crusade in Cameroon. It was the second night in Cameroon that I got to know of the unfortunate incident of her passing.

“If there was domestic violence that led to or coincided with those symptoms that she came with two to three months ago, there is no way I would know. And if there had been perennial domestic violence, there was no way I would have known...”

Enenche added that the music producer of the church, the late singer's twin sister, and her children confirmed that Osinachi was being mistreated in her home. When he (Enenche) asked them why they didn't inform him earlier, they said Osinachi begged them not to.

Enenche's statement was necessitated by several claims that he was aware Osinachi suffered from domestic violence. Some days ago, Deborah Enenche, the cleric's daughter affirmed that her father wasn't aware Osinachi was being mistreated by her husband.

According to reports, Osinachi's husband, Peter Nwachukwu has been arrested and the federal government has assured that the family of the "Ekuweme" singer will get justice for her death.
