A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has again adjourned the trial of the late gospel singer Osinachi’s husband, Peter Nwachukwu.

Naija News understand that the court was supposed to rule on the case today but the Judge in charge of the case, Justice Njideka Nwosu-Iheme was absent and hence a new date was announced for the trial.

Reporters had arrived at the court this morning to witness the trial but were informed by the court registry that the court would not be sitting again today.

The trial according to the report has now been adjourned till Monday, June 20 and Tuesday, June 21.

Recall that the federal government slammed a 23-count charge against the late gospel singer’s husband, which borders on domestic violence and homicide.

Naija News recalls that Mrs Osinachi Nwachukwu had died in April 2022 allegedly as a result of prolonged assault by her husband who had pleaded not guilty to all the allegations that were contained in the charge the Federal Government preferred against him.

Osinachi Nwachukwu’s death sparked outrage after her family maintained that she suffered marital abuse at the hands of her abusive husband.

The late singer, Naija News understands is expected to be buried in her father’s compound on June 25, Abia state.
