"Ever since he married her, my daughter had no peace, I too had no peace," the mother was quoted as saying.
Madam Madu said she didn't see her daughter for eight years after getting married to Mr Nwachukwu.
She added that when she gave birth, the husband did't inform her.
The bereaved mother said Osinachi for some time did not tell her and the family what she was going through in the marriage.
She said it was outsiders who revealed what her daughter was facing.
Osinachi finally called her family for help
Madam Madu said one day, she received a phone call from her daughter, after having three kids, where she opened up on how the husband was treating her.
She said Osinachi told her father that Mr Nwachukwu told her that "if she did not go home alive, she would go in death."
After the threatening statement, Osinachi's eldest sister, Favour Mmadu, went to Abuja to pick her and children and took them to Enugu, the mother said.
According to her, Osinachi spent one year and three months in her father's house in Enugu before Nwachukwu came to beg for her to return home.
What God has joined together...
Madam Madu said she did not want make her daughter to go back to the marriage, adding that she wanted her to file for divorce and find another husband.
She, however, said Osinachi told her that, "what God has joined together, let no man put asunder".
The mother said her late daughter told her she would go back to the marriage. She added that the abuse continued again as she returned.
Osinachi's sister, Favour, also spoke on the development, saying she advised the late gospel against staying in the marriage.
