Rev. Funke Adejumo on Osinachi’s Death: Why Pastors Should Stop Telling People To Stay In Abusive Marriages

Following the murder of popular gospel artist Osinachi, who died allegedly as a result of domestic abuse, Reverend Funke Felix-Adejumo, a Nigerian preacher and marriage counsellor, has advised those in abusive situations to flee for their life.

Osinachi had been on life support for almost two months before he died of throat cancer, according to previous reports. Her spouse, on the other hand, has been arrested on suspicion of culpable homicide, and the case is still being investigated.

According to unconfirmed sources, late Osinachi’s husband kicked her in the chest during a recent attack on her, and she was put on life support.

During a live session on Instagram, Rev. Adejumo reacted to the death of Osinachi Nwachukwu, saying:

“Woman, you are not a second-class citizen. Don’t believe that marriage is the only thing that defines you. Please recognize that you are valuable whether or not you are married. “Never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever.

She also urged on those in positions of spiritual leadership to cease encouraging people to stay in abusive marriages.

“I am a pastor’s wife, not a pastor.” I’ve been married to a preacher for 33 years. “Those of you who have spiritual control over people, please stop advising them to stay in abusive situations and start praying,” she added.

“Would you tell your blood relatives to stay there if they were your family?” When someone tells you that their husband is beating them up and their wife has pulled out a knife, how can you tell them to stay still and we’ll pray for them? That kind of prayer will never be heard by God. That is a form of power abuse.

“Submit is not subjection, and submission is not servitude,” she continued. “Just because you’re the head of a relationship doesn’t mean you have to kill the body in the name of religion.”
