The Minister for Women Affair, Mrs. Pauline Tallen on her recent visit to the family of late gospel singer, Mrs. Osinachi Nwachukwu, made more shocking revelation about the trending saga of abuse suffered by the deceased. According to the minister she was told by the children of the singer that their mum had no bank account of her own and that she only transacted businesses with their father's account.
The Minister quoted one of the children thus: "it was their mom that runs around on her gospel music, comes back with her money, in fact, if the money is paid through (a) bank account, it was paid into his account. She has no account of her own, any money she has, he collects it and gives her just peanut for feeding and when she cooks, he started shouting and beating her. And their mom was living in fear and was always sad.
“It was such a horrible story from a young boy that is said to be just 12. I asked him what class he is and he said Class Five. At the age of 12? I said, ‘Why?’ And he said he can’t even read. So, mentally, this child is already destroyed.
“I was battling with tears and when he finished, I called on the second son.”
Tallen further said “the second son repeated the same horrible situation” as well as the third son.
The minister vowed that justice would be served on the matter as it would be followed to a logical conclusion.
