Justice Njideka Nwosu-Iheme of the Federal High Court, Abuja, has heard that late singer’s husband, Peter Nwachukwu, slapped her in the presence of her hairdresser.
Blessing Iyamabor, the prosecution seventh witness made the court known of the said assault.
Blessing in her account, said she was late Osinachi’s hairdresser and on her invitation was in their house to make her hair when Mr Nwachukwu had issue with her over the car key.
Speaking, “Osinachi came to my shop and asked if I do home service, I said yes, so she collected my phone number so that when she needs me she will call me. After 3 days she called me and said I should come to make her hair for her. She directed me to her house.
“She came and I started plaiting the hair, in the process the husband called her to bring the car keys, Osinachi said the car keys were on the table, and Peter Nwachukwu started shouting for her to bring the car key. Then he came and slapped her, and immediately he slapped her, I removed my hand from her hair then she ran inside crying looking for the car key.
“He looked at me and asked what I was still doing there and that I should get out of their house. After I went out, she later came to the shop to complete the hair. She said next time that I should come to the house and I told her that I cannot come because of the way her husband treated her, she then said that if she is chanced she will be coming to the shop. Since that day, she didn’t come again.”
After the witness was discharged from the witness box, Justice Njideka Nwosu-Iheme fixed Thursday, October 13 for the continuation of the trial.
