The burial comes after a night of worship was held in Abuja on Thursday, June 23.

A night of prayer was also held in her name in Isochi, Umunoci in Abia state on Friday.

Osinachi was alleged to have been a silent victim of domestic assault from Peter, her now-embattled husband.

The gospel singer, who passed away on April 8, was initially thought to have died of throat cancer.

But associates claimed it may be connected to an assault by Peter, her husband who was later arrested.

The federal government had filed a 23-count charge bordering on homicide against Peter.

The case is still in court.

Amarachi Eze, Osinachi’s twin sister, had narrated how Peter seized control of the deceased singer’s finances.

The twin said the singer would sometimes stay away from home while she was sick to avoid the marital trauma.

“When we were to perform a song together, Peter locked her up. People feared him,” she had said.

“He denies her access to visit us when she comes to Enugu.

“Osinachi would fall sick but she’d not stay home for fear of maltreatment

“He beats Osinachi up. During her last childbirth, Peter locked her out in the cold with her infant.

“Her kid handed her a blanket from the window.

“Before Osinachi performs at an event, Peter claims the pay, leaving her penniless.”
