The Federal Government has vowed Osinachi, who allegedly died as a result of unreported serial domestic violence meted out to her by her husband, would get justice even in death.
Minister of Women Affairs, Dame Pauline Tallen, in a statement she personally signed, said domestic violence is a crime under the Violence Against Persons Prohibition Act (2015), adding that the husband of the late gospel artiste would be prosecuted.
The 42-year-old artiste died on Friday after spending days at an undisclosed hospital in Abuja.
Tallen said: “We cannot continue to keep losing our young women to mentally unstable young men all in the name of marriage.
“Life first before anything. Our religious and traditional institutions, as well as the immediate families must join us in this fight to rid our society of such acts before they become fatal.
“I know more women are going through such traumatic experiences, please give them a listening ear, provide wise counsel and save them from untimely death. I am not advocating divorce for those, who will misunderstand me.
“All I am asking is that we stand up to the truth where necessary and promptly so as to save a life when you have an opportunity to do so.
“May the soul of Osinachi and all those who have lost their lives as a result of domestic violence rest in peace.
“If you see something, speak out, so that together we can save lives.”
Tallen visited the Arco Estate, Abuja, home of the late singer, located on the Airport Road, Lugbe.
