The Police have stated that the report of a post-mortem examination conducted on the late Nigerian singer, Zainab Nielsen, aka, Alizee, shows she died from trauma.
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, made this known at a press briefing on Monday.
Edgar said the trauma emanated from the injuries inflicted on her head by her husband, Peter Nielsen.
We recall that Zainab, popularly known as Alizee, and her four-year-old daughter, Petra, were allegedly murdered by her husband, Peter Nielsen, at their home at Ocean Parade, Banana Island, Lagos.
Peter, 53, was arrested and subsequently arraigned on two counts of murder last Thursday at a Yaba Chief Magistrate’s Court.
A police prosecutor, CSP Effiong Asuquo, had told the court, while tendering a remand application, that Peter hit his wife’s head on the wall, noting that she died from the injuries she sustained.
Peter was remanded in Ikoyi prisons while the case was forwarded to the Directorate of Public Prosecutions for legal advice.
Edgal further speaking to journalists in Lagos on the case said the autopsy on Zainab’s corpse and forensic report gathered from the scene of crime had shown more revelations.
He said, “The autopsy report revealed that Mrs. Zainab Nielsen suffered trauma as a result of the impact on her head.
“Secondly, the forensic experts revealed that there were bloodstains from the couple’s bedroom to the kitchen.
“Even though they were cleverly wiped from the floor, they were still able to detect the stains with the application of special chemical reagents.
“In addition, bloodstains were also discovered on the wash hand basins and on the hand towel the suspect used in wiping his hands after the commission of the offence.” Dailypost
