The National Hospital, Abuja, has deflated claims from some quarters, that the corpse of Osinachi Nwachukwu, the popular gospel singer, who was allegedly killed by her husband few months ago, was singing her hit track ‘Ekwueme’ in the middle of the night while still in the mortuary.
Speaking on behalf of the Hospital, Haastrup told newsmen on Monday that, “Medically, there is nothing like that; it’s just an imagination of people. Somebody that is dead and is a corpse, how would such a person be singing in the night?”
Haastrup added, “There is no medical backup to that; it’s an imagination… It just can’t be proven in any way… Somebody that is dead is dead, and has become a corpse; it’s inside a morgue, it can’t sing and can’t move, so it’s an imagination of people.”
Hasstrup, who declined comment on the autopsy report of the late singer, said, “It’s a coroner case, and it is confidential.”
He emphasized, “We can’t reveal anything here. The Investigating Police Officer (IPO) in charge of the case will give it to the Inspector General of Police (IGP), who will turn it to the court for action.”
Haastrup however confirmed that the autopsy result has been submitted to the necessary quarters, but that it was done confidentially.
Osinachi Nwachukwu, 42, during her lifetime, was a songwriter, a producer, and an evangelist, who also ministered as a chorister at the Dunamis International Gospel Centre in Abuja.
She will be remembered for her famous hit song ‘Ekwueme’ and other of such, chorused in many Nigerian Christian gatherings.
She was survived by her children, her twin sister, an aged mother, her husband (who allegedly killed her), and other members of her family.
