The autopsy scheduled to have been performed on late gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu by the National hospital authorities to ascertain the cause of her death, did not take place due to absence of some family members of both Osinachi and Pastor Peter Nwachukwu, the husband.

Sources said preliminary processes for the autopsy however kick-started on Thursday night at the National Hospital pending the arrival of the required family members.

When contacted, FCT Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Josephine Adeh, confirmed that the autopsy is necessary because “it is part of the investigation” .
