Pius Onichabor

"In all honesty, Osinachi killed herself. I've been trying to restrain myself from writing about this horrid death of this lady. She covered just too much, I read that she was given two cars but was never allowed to drive any, was subjected to trekking to Church while the husband and children drives to Church... They would even see her at the Bus Stop and still drive past her. This is very disheartening and really evil of this very man."
