The Minister of Women Affairs, Pauline Tallen, on Wednesday, disclosed that Peter Nwachukwu, the husband of the late gospel artiste, Osinachi, is married to another woman.
Tallen said one of the sons of the deceased disclosed this.
She disclosed this while appearing on NTA’s Good Morning Nigeria’s breakfast show.
The minister said Osinachi’s children disclosed that their mother had no bank account because their father usurped all her proceeds.
According to Tallen: “Honourable member, the deputy chief whip, happens to come from the late Osinachi’s village and she was out of town (and when she came back), she was in my office to thank me for the visit and she demanded that I should ask one of my aides to take her.
“I asked my CSO to take her and when they got to the house, with the encouragement I gave the children, they are encouraged to speak out.
“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 as a beast of burden.”
Mr Nwachukwu was alleged to have subjected the deceased to domestic violence.
This resulted in blood clots in her chest and eventual death.
