Osinachi’s Husband Has Another Wife Outside Wedlock – FG
The Federal Government has claimed that Peter Nwachukwu, husband to the late popular gospel musician, Osinachi Nwachukwu, has another wife outside wedlock.
Naija News had earlier reported that the husband wedded his other wife in a church but hid the union from Osinachi’s family.
The romance which began before Nwachukwu sought Osinachi’s hand in marriage was believed to have gone awry after the woman bore a child.
In an interview on NTA’s Good Morning Nigeria on Wednesday, Minister of Women Affairs, Pauline Tallen, said that Mr Nwachukwu, who had since been arrested, married the lady in secret.
She said one of their children found an old picture hidden in his father’s room and exposed the secret to them, adding that the late singer had no bank account of her own as all her proceeds were mismanaged by their father.
The minister said that the children of the deceased told her when she visited them last week that their father physically assaulted his late wife and her four children.
Tallen, however, promised the deceased’s children and family that justice would be served on the matter as it would be followed to a logical conclusion.
She said: “So, more revelations are coming out and (one of) the sons went in and brought out an album; he’s (Peter) been married to another woman. You can imagine collecting money from her (Osinachi) and treating this woman like a beast of burden.”
