Here are photos of Peter Neilsen in handcuffs after he was arrested. He has been remanded in Ikoyi prisons.
Peter Nielsen, from Denmark, is the number one suspect after his wife, Nigerian singer Ali Zainab ‘Alizee’, and their four-year-old daughter were murdered in the family’s residence at Ocean Parade, Banana Island, early hours of Thursday.
Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Chike Oti confirmed the murder of the mother and daughter as well as Peter Neilsen’ arrest for murder.
Peter Neilsen is currently being held at the Ikoyi police station pending his transfer to state C.I.D.
Thorough investigation is ongoing to ascertain what is the remote cause of Alizee and Petra Neilsen’s untimely deaths.
Zainab and Petra Neilsen were found together dead in the kitchen of their home, with Petra on her mother’s chest.
Peter was said to have immediately denied complicity in the dastardly murder. He is said to have claimed he only woke up that morning to find their dead bodies in the kitchen.
Alizee and her daughter’s dead bodies have since been deposited at the mortuary for autopsy, while the arrested Peter Neilsen’s embassy has been informed of his arrest and investigation. As he is Alizee’s husband/lover, he is the number 1 suspect.
