The Nigeria Association of Women Journalists FCT Chapter joins millions of Nigerians to condemn the alleged murder of a famous gospel musican, Osinachi Nwachukwu (Ekueme) by her husband.
The death of the gospel star is a great loss not just to her family but to Nigeria and the entire Christendom who were blessed by her inspiring songs.
The Chairperson NAWOJ FCT, comrade Annah Daniel, strongly condemns domestic violence of any form as it has been claiming and still claims the lives of both men/women.
As much as we continue to pray for peaceful marriages, we urge women not to endure abusive marriages as separation is better than death. “Leave and Live”
NAWOJ therefore calls for the speedy trial and prosecution of the culprit to serve as an deterrent to others who may be nursing “any” violence idea.
NAWOJ also wishes to commend the Minister of Women Affairs, Dame, Pauline Tallen for promptly swinging into action by visiting the home of the deceased and taking custody of the children in Lugbe , FCT and ensuring that the accused was arrested.
The incident brings to the fore the need for continuous protection of women and girls from Gender Based Violence.
“We call on the Nigeria Police Force to expedite actions and be transparent in the handling of the case”.
