Following the death of the Ekuweme singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu, many reactions and counterreactions have continued to stir up emotions over social media.
Many of the reactions have boiled down to the death being an avoidable one if only the late singer had spoken out about her ordeals in her marriage.
One of such reactions is a two-paged note Debora Paul-Eneche, daughter of the Dunamis International Gospel Centre founder, Pastor Paul Eneche, penned down.
In this note, she made about seven points known. Stating that since the incident happened she had been restless.
She said, “I have been unable to sleep the past few days due to my fury at the untimely and avoidable exit of a generational voice.”
She adds that the late singer was like a mentor to her, saying that, “she inspired me to chase after God. I can’t express how much shock I experienced on hearing.”
Debora who expressed her pain for not being able to do anything about the situation that led to the singer’s death said she was not in the know just like many others who surrounded the late Osinachi.
While exonerating her father from every allegation of neglect, Debora said, “it is even disheartening to know, from an account of her twin sister, that she wouldn’t let her spiritual father be made aware of the gravity of abuse she suffered.”
One out of the seven points she made says, “the deceased was very isolated from loved ones. Much of what happened in the end could have been avoided if she hadn’t been marooned from the ones who cared for her most.
I believe she didn’t only pass due to the compendium of physical hurt and pain; she died of a broken heart. I will personally do my best to ensure that the offending party in the equation is punished to the fullest extent of the law. He will not go scot-free.”
While also promising to protect the children of the late singer, she said, “there will be many measure taken to also protect the children and her family as well.”
Debora who also gave the church’s hotlines for victims of domestic violence admonishes Christians not to be mere bystanders, she said, “please don’t be a bystander. Actively defend the helpless.
Toxic relationships are difficult to come out of on one’s own. Our legal system may have failed us, but the community doesn’t.”
She concludes by charging believers, she said, “please guard your heart from the vices of the enemy to steal your faith.
Wisdom is profitable to direct. Let’s all lend a hand in assisting those around us who may be struggling but cant speak up. See something, say something.”
It would be recalled that Osinachi Nwachukwu was confirmed dead on April 8th 2022, when the news broke on the internet that she had dies from throat cancer.
