According to BBC Igbo, the 42-year-old musician would be buried in her father’s compound in Isuochi, Abia state.

The media outlet also said some of her family members are considering returning the bride price paid by Peter, her husband, as part of her marriage rites.

Osinachi, renowned for her hit song ‘Ekwueme,’ was alleged to have been a silent victim of domestic assault from Peter.

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

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

Her death had stirred outrage, with many Nigerians calling on relevant authorities to ensure justice is served.

The federal government had recently filed charges of culpable homicide against Peter before a high court in Abuja.

The charges were filed under sections 104 and 379 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act 2015 and Section 221 of the Penal Code, and the Violence Against Persons Prohibition Act (VAPP).

Peter is accused of forcefully ejecting Osinachi from the family home and throwing her out of a moving vehicle.

The prosecution also alleged that the defendant restrained her movement and locked her up in the house.
