Danish man who killed Nigerian-wife, daughter remanded in custody

A 53-year-old Danish man, Peter Nielsen, who allegedly killed his wife, Zainab Ali-Nielsen, popularly known as Alizee; and their three-year-old daughter, Petra, was on Wednesday remanded in Ikoyi Prisons on the orders of a Yaba Chief Magistrates’ Court, Lagos.

The Magistrate, Mrs. K.B. Ayeye, who gave the ruling, said the accused should be kept behind bars pending advice from the State Director of Public Prosecutions.

Nielsen, a Danish citizen, is being tried on two counts bordering on murder. He pleaded not guilty to the both.

But CSP Effiong Asuquo, the prosecutor, told the court that the accused committed the offences on April 5 at his residence at Block 4, Flat 17, Bella Vista Tower, Banana Island, Ikoyi, Lagos.

He alleged that the accused killed his wife, Zainab, 37, and their daughter, Petra, in the house.

“The accused, who was always at loggerheads with his wife, had hit her head on the wall several times, leading to her death. He also proceeded to poison his daughter.

“He had dragged their bodies under the gas to create the impression that they suffocated to death as a result of a gas leakage,” he said.

The offences contravened Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 which prescribes death sentence upon conviction.

The case has been adjourned until May 8, pending the DPP’s advice. (NAN)

    JUNK FOOD SILENT KILLER.
    Do you know what you are eating ? And if it is good and healthy for your body? The lifestyle in these days has been changed regarding the way that people eat.

    Nowadays, consumption of junks has become a daily habit that people really enjoy imbibing in. For some people like Favour Odinmfe, Prudence Alfred, and Hawa junks are necessity that seems very delicious, cheap and convenient when you decide to grab a bite while in an hurry.

    Although, they agree to the fact that junks is not wholesome or nutritious whatsoever which is completely bad to the body,but they find it easy and cheap to eat than home cooked food.

    Concluding, that the high range of junks consumption cannot be stopped completely but can be controlled only by convincing people that are addicted to it to love and prefer home cooked food to junks which is far more nutritious than junks.
