A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Wuse, on Friday, remanded Peter Nwachukwu, spouse of the late gospel vocalist, Osinachi, at the Kuje Correctional Facility, forthcoming the consultation and assurance of the manslaughter related suit founded against him by the Attorney General of the Federation.
Equity NK Nwosu-Iheme provided the request after he argued not liable to 23 counts verging on aggressive behavior at home and murder, among others.
The appointed authority requested that the suspect be remanded at the remedial office, while preliminary was dismissed to June 16 from 12pm and June 17 by 9am.
“The business for now is for arraignment, sped up hearing is thusly requested,” proclaimed Justice Nwosu-Iheme.
“Respondent ought to be remanded in Kuje Correctional Facility forthcoming the conference and assurance of this suit,” she said.
Nwachukwu’s better half kicked the bucket on April 8 and a significant number of her partners had blamed her better half for exposing the departed to aggressive behavior at home, prompting her demise.
A while later, the Police captured him and he has since been in detainment.
The public authority guaranteed that he negated Sections 104 and 379 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015; Section 221 of the Penal Code; and the Violence Against Person’s Prohibition Act 2015.
