BREAKING: Pastor Enenche Opens Up On Osinachi Nwachukwu

By
John Michael Ojo

The senior pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Center Pastor Paul Enenche has revealed all he knew about Osinachi Nwachukwu, who died on Friday at the National Hospital, Abuja over an alleged domestic violence.

Enenche, in a now viral video on his Facebook page seen by New Times, disclosed that the late singer and her husband Mr. Peter Nwachukwu who is the prime suspect in Osinachi’s death, paid him a visit in his office about a two and a half ago months and that the singer during the visit complained of chest pains and respiratory stress.

Enenche added that after praying for the couple, he asked them to visit the National Hospital for a thorough medical examination and that he also provided them with contacts at the hospital to enable them to have quick and proper care.

He said the stories he heard after the death of the late singer were shocking to him as he has always preached against domestic violence and wife battering. According to him, it is always good to leave an abusive marriage and live than stay because of marriage and die.

He said: “We are in a season that calls for sober reflection in the light of the passing of our beloved sister, Osinachi Nwachukwu, who is a kingdom asset.

“In the light of so much misinformation, in the light of so much misconstruction of events, I decided to set straight what I know concerning the situation.

“Over two and a half to three months ago, she came to see me with her husband with complaints of chest pain and respiratory distress.

“I prayed for her and prayed and prayed again. And when the symptoms did not abate, I counselled that they go to the hospital to help us to know exactly what we were dealing with.

“And they asked if I could assist, help them, and facilitate that process. I called our head of the medical team, Dr Sang, who is a consultant paediatrician with the Federal Medical Centre, Keffi to assist and handle the situation. And he called his colleagues at the Federal Medical Centre, Jabi, where they attended to them.

“On seeing her, they ordered some investigations after examinations and that included CT scans and computerized axial tomography scans. That was done. From what the doctor saw, they felt that there was a need for further investigation, either at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital or the National Hospital in Abuja.

“I called the doctor at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Dr Akor Alexander, and told him the situation and he asked that they come to see him immediately. And they went to the Gwagwalada teaching hospital.

“After they had examined her there and saw the situation, they felt that there was a need for histology and biopsy of the lung tissue, and they asked that they should go to the National Hospital to get that done.

“I again called the doctor, Jubril, who is head of pathology and consultant histopathologist of the National Hospital, Abuja, and reported the issue to him to help us go ahead with the investigations and find out what exactly happened.

“I am calling names, I am calling places because the people are available and alive and they are verifiable.

“And then, they continued the management. The histology was done and from what I saw at that time, the picture was much milder than what the CT scan earlier showed. So, we felt very happy that at least there was a relief.

“She called me, literarily daily and we prayed with her. She reported progress. The point came when she needed no oxygen anymore. According to what she said to me one night, they checked her oxygen perfusion and it was 100% and we were very very excited at that progress.

“That was the point it was before we went over to the crusade in Cameroon. It was in Cameroon, the second night that I got to know of the unfortunate incident of her passing.

“Now, if there was domestic violence that led to or coincided with the symptoms that she came with two and a half to three months ago, there is no way I would know and if there had been perrennial domestic violence, there was no way I would have known.

“The things we were hearing after her passing, were things that were very very strange to my hearing. Then, I began to ask questions.

“First, I asked the twin sister, were you aware that your sister passed through all these things? She said yes she knew some of them. But that the majority of them, she was hearing also from those she confided in.

“I asked her if you knew, why didn’t you let us know? And the twin sister said she always begged her please don’t let the church know, don’t let the pastor know please, the man would change, just pray for us, the man will change. And that continued to happen.

“I asked the first son yesterday, I said was this real? And the son told other stories. And I said, so, why didn’t you tell me because typically they will run to me after service and I will pray for them, lay hands on them, why didn’t you tell me about what was going on in the home?

“And the young man said, they could not tell me because the father would always ask them after they left me, what did you tell the pastor, did you tell him anything, and so on and so forth.

“Other members of the choir who were privy to what was going on, I asked several of them when we paid a visit to the house of the deceased yesterday. What happened? Why were we not aware of all these things? The same story, that she will always go on her knees and ask them please don’t, don’t, don’t, just pray, we are trusting God for him to change.

“The last one that touched me so much was the music producer, who came to see me in the office two days ago to tell me his own experience, how he witnessed that the man slapped the wife in his studio.

“And I said to him, you saw a man slap a woman in your presence and you left the man alone and you are a man yourself? And he said before he could respond to the man, the woman again in tears on her knees begged him not to do anything, to leave him alone. And not even to do anything at all, and so on and so forth.

“So, we have heard these stories and these are the things we got to know after she has passed.

“As a person and as a church, everyone who knows us knows that we have zero degrees of tolerance for domestic abuse and wife battery of any sort.

“If you have ever listened to any of our relationship messages, there is a principle and a rule we have and that is it is better to be alive without marriage than to die because of marriage.

“We have said that over and over and over. I am sure that some of us would have listened to the clips of those messages.

“Now, this kind of time is a time where people heap all manner of the blame on the church and that is typical because whatever goes wrong anytime the first port of call is the church.

“I have seen people ask questions, why should a wife abuser be a member of a church or how can somebody be so brutal and he is a member of a church?

“That is not a question that people who know the Scriptures should ask. You know the ark of Noah. The same ark that carried good animals had evil beasts inside the same ark.

“You know Jesus Christ had the followership of what the Bible called the multitude. And for me, multitude means multiple attitudes. People with a multitude of inclinations. People with multiple tendencies. People with multiple behaviours. In fact, one of those that followed Jesus Christ was a thief, who also sold him to death. He was called Judas Iscariot.

“The question is, how could somebody who followed Jesus Christ, as perfect as Jesus was, as instructive as he was, as impactful as he was, and still be a thief and murderer? That question is left for everybody to answer.

“But I can tell you the worst of it all, there was a personality called Lucifer, who was in Heaven, and became Satan, the devil under the nose of God in Heaven! A place where there was no sin and could have been no sin at all; this guy became an inventor and originator of sin. How is it possible for somebody to become a devil from being an archangel right inside Heaven?

“That is how possible it is for anybody to be anything while inside the church. Even the best of pastors or preachers or teachers in the world cannot change any man or woman, who is unwilling to be changed.

“In case you feel frustrated at anything, and you are airing your frustration here and there, it is a transfer of frustration, a transfer of aggression. The church is not your place of transferring frustration, transferring aggression.

“We are willing to help you. If you have so much bitterness, so much frustration, and so much distraction in your life and you don’t know where to vent it, but in situations like this, we can help you.

“We want to let you know we love you and Jesus loves you. It is well with you and it is well with your loved ones.

“For the family of the deceased, we pray for strength and health and for the body of Christ generally, it is well with you in Jesus’ precious name, amen.

“This is Dr Pastor Paul Enenche, Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre Worldwide. God bless you”.

The APC in the state is determined to go on appeal over the matter.

The lower court had in its verdict, not only affirmed Bashir Machina as the party’s candidate for next year’s election, but ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to recognise him as such, a position the nation’s number three man said he would not appeal against.

Advocacy For Alleged Witches Petitions NHRC Over Witchcraft Markets Event

The Advocacy for Alleged Witches has written a petition to the Cross River State chapter of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) over a planned event to rescue families from witchcraft.

The petition titled “Petition: Ukpabio ‘s Rescuing Families from Witchcraft Markets Event” was signed by Dr.Leo Igwe.

The petition reads:
“I am writing on behalf of the Advocacy for Alleged Witches, an organization that campaigns to end witch persecution in Nigeria to lodge a complain about a proposed event, Rescuing Families from Witchcraft Markets, of Evangelist Helen Ukpabio and her Liberty Gospel Church. The event will be held on October 5 to 9 2022 in Calabar. As explained in this article, the event has some criminal intent and could fuel human rights abuses in Cross River state. Witchcraft accusation is a crime under the law. So it is important to restrain any individual or group, or stop any activity with the intent to accuse, or impute witchcraft as this proposed program by Ms Ukpabio and her church has indicated.

“As you may be aware, cases of witch persecution, attack and killings in Cross River have been linked to the activities of Ms Ukpabio and her church, and other witch hunters who openly advertise, stage and hold programs where they make witchcraft imputations (in this case in families), identify witches and exorcise witchcraft. Programs like this event on Rescuing Families from Witchcraft Markets valorize witchcraft beliefs, and incite people to suspect, maltreat, attack or kill family members in the name of witchcraft.

“At a time when Cross River state is witnessing killings and attacks linked to witchcraft beliefs, it is necessary to take measures to prevent witchcraft accusations, witch identifications and persecutions. The Advocacy for Alleged Witches urges you to use your good office to restrain Ukpabio and her church from going ahead with this witch hunting event. ”
