Peter Nwachukwu, who is the embattled husband of the late gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu has reportedly absconded from prison after the massive Kuje Prison siege that led to the escape of numerous prison inmates from the correctional facility.

The Eastern Updates recalls that a High Court in Abuja had on June 3 remanded Nwachukwu at the Kuje Correctional facility, pending the hearing and determination of the homicide-related suit against him by the Attorney General of the Federation.

But it had been gathered that Nwachukwu was one of the suspects who had escaped the facility during a terrorist attack last week Tuesday while breaching his cell gates and making away with the other fugitives.

Terrorists suspected to be Boko Haram members had on July 6, attacked the medium correctional centre, and killed at least two persons while over 800 inmates were freed.

A source from Dunamis International Gospel Center, Osinachi’s former Church, told Newsmen on Tuesday that he could not be found in the prison since the attack happened and all efforts to actually reach out to him have been thwarted.

According to him, a manhunt has been launched by security operatives in search of the suspect

“The day we heard of the prison break, we called the prison authorities to know the state of Mr. Nwachukwu but they were initially not forthcoming with the true situation.

“But it was confirmed on Sunday that the man truly escaped from prison custody.

“Manhunt has been launched on him at the moment. Security agencies have been briefed.

“They are also monitoring his bank account to see if there would be any transaction.”

Osinachi, the Ekwueme crooner died on April 8 and was buried on June 25 at her home town Isochi Umunneochi in Abia State.
