One Gold Martins, who claims to be a friend of the deceased, in a post shared on Facebook, alleged Osinachi had been suffering domestic violence in her home and had confided in some friends about what she was going through in the hands of her husband. But being a gospel minister, Osinachi was afraid of what the world would say if she ended her marriage after four children.

The producer disclosed in a tweet that inasmuch as he tried to help Nwachukwu, she didn’t want to be helped.
He tweeted: “So much to say about this unfortunate situation but this space is not the right place!!
“When you make money and your husband collects all the money and leave you pennyless!
“When your husband brings you to the studio gets angry and leaves you in the studio without even transportation to return home
“I’ve personally told this woman to leave this marriage but she kept making excuses for the monster!
“The last song we recorded, this was our chat below! We were recording a song that she doesn’t want the Husband to know
“The last time I told her to leave the marriage, she asked me to help her talk to her Pastor which was difficult for me because I dont have a relationship with him!
“Before you say why didn’t we say it early, you can’t help a person who’s not ready to be helped! The last time I spoke about the husband on Facebook here, He went on his wall and made a lot of senseless statements!!
“Mrs Osinachi Nwachukwu is an example of a typical Nigerian woman who always feel it’s their responsibility to make a marriage work Even when their life is at risk!
“God Rest Her soul.
“Dear Women learn to leave when the marriages Gets Abusive (Physically, emotionally and otherwise).”
