The Lagos state police command has released a report detailing the circumstances surrounding the murder of Zainab Ali-Nielsen and her four-year-old daughter.
The singer, better known as Alizee, was allegedly murdered by Peter Nielsen, her Danish husband.
In a situation report released on Sunday, the police said the violence began in the bedroom, after which the bodies of the deceased were dragged to the kitchen.
The police report read: “In respect of the unfortunate incident, the command declares as follows:
“That on the 5th day of April, 2018, at about 11am, it received a complaint from the Facility Manager of Bellasta Tower, Banana Island, Mr. Kunle Kukoyi, that at about 7am of 5th April, 2018 he was informed by 13-year-old Miss Gift Madaki that she heard her elder sister, late Mrs Zainab Nielsen, 37 years old, crying in the early hours of the morning as she was being manhandled by her husband, one Mr. Peter Nielsen, a 53-year old citizen of Denmark.
“The little girl estimated the time she heard her sister’s cry to be 0345hours. The doctor and his team inspected the bodies and confirmed them dead.
“Preliminary investigation conducted at the scene revealed that the violence that consumed the deceased persons started in the couple’s bedroom but the bodies were dragged to the kitchen.
