Judge Rules Against Peter Nwachukwu’s No-Case Submission in Homicide Trial

The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court in Wuse Zone 2 has rejected the no-case submission application made by Peter Nwachukwu, the husband of the late gospel singer, Osinachi.

Nwachukwu had filed this application to contest the charges of homicide and domestic violence brought against him by the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation on June 3, 2022.

Justice Njideka K. Nwosu-Iheme ruled that Nwachukwu must provide a defense, indicating that he has a case to answer. The judge ordered Nwachukwu to present his side of the story.

Osinachi passed away on April 8, 2022, and her death was attributed to alleged mistreatment and domestic violence by her husband. Following his arraignment, Justice Njideka K. Nwosu-Iheme had remanded Nwachukwu in the Kuje Correctional Facility until the case was heard and determined. Nwachukwu had pleaded not guilty to a 23-count charge, which included allegations of domestic violence and homicide.

Nwachukwu’s attorney, A. Aliyu, had filed a no-case submission, arguing that the evidence provided by medical practitioners during the prosecution’s case absolved his client of any culpable homicide. He pointed out that the medical professionals had testified that the deceased did not show signs of violence leading to her death. According to their reports, his wife died due to non-violent factors, specifically the growth of tumors that resulted in cardiac tamponade (the primary cause of death) and abnormal tissue growth (cancer) as the secondary cause of death.

The lawyer further contended that Nwachukwu’s in-laws were attempting to frame him, emphasizing that the autopsy revealed no signs of violence on the deceased at the time it was conducted.

However, during the recent court proceedings, Justice Nwosu-Iheme determined that the prosecution had established a prima facie case against the defendant, compelling him to present his defense. The judge scheduled the next hearing for November 22 and 23 for Nwachukwu to provide his defense.
