One Gold Martins, who claims to be a friend of the deceased, in a post shared on Facebook, alleged Osinachi had been suffering domestic violence in her home and had confided in some friends about what she was going through in the hands of her husband.

The Facebook user added that Osinachi’s husband threatened her on the phone and assured her that his wife would not return to his house.
