The family of Osinachi Nwachukwu, the late gospel singer, has denied claims it created a GoFundMe account for her children.
The mother of four died in April after battling an undisclosed ailment.
It is understood that weeks after the ‘Ekwueme’ singer passed away, a GoFundMe account was created by unknown individuals purportedly for raising funds for her kids.
But in a statement issued by A. A. Paul, a lawyer, the family asked the public to disregard the fundraiser.
“We plead with the general public to please respect our privacy. We appreciate the public for their concern and love,” the statement read.
“All her children are being taken care of and we have not collected any N32 million from anybody nor are we stranded or begging the public in any form as regards to a certain GoFundMe account making rounds. Please everybody should be careful so that you don’t get scammed.
“The burial arrangement is in progress and we shall inform the general public once we have made full preparation. Please remember us in your prayers as we have seen how far the devil can go but in the name of Jesus we are victorious and the bible says that the steps of the righteous shines brighter and brighter unto a perfect day that is our assurance.”
Osinachi was alleged to have been a silent victim of domestic assault from Peter, her now-embattled husband.
The federal government had filed a 23-count charge against Peter.
