The trial of Peter Neilsen accused of the grisly murder of his wife Alizee and their daughter Petra is still ongoing.
Recall that Nielson was arrested and arraigned at the Yaba Chief Magistrate’s Court for allegedly killing the singer and their daughter in their Lagos home in April. During the court briefing, the police prosecutor, CSP Effiong Asuquo, told the court, that Peter hit his wife’s head on the wall, resulting in her death. He added that the Danish man poisoned their daughter afterwards, before dragging the bodies to the kitchen.
Now, LIB reports that their househelp, Evelyn Gimba, who speaks only Hausa, has testified at the Igbosere High Court in Lagos yesterday, Tuesday October 9th.
Asked if she had ever witnessed the couple fight: ”I never witnessed any violence between my madam (deceased) and the husband (defendant). They were always happy and I never saw Peter (defendant) in a drunken state.”
Asked how she discovered Neilson and the bodies: “I tried to open the door leading to the kitchen but it didn’t open so I went downstairs to the palour. I called one of the children’s number but it was switched off, I knocked at the door several times before it was opened for me. I then asked the girl that opened the door what type of sleep she was still sleeping up to that time. The girl then told me that my madam and her husband were fighting the previous night, I saw little bruises on the defendant’s forehead and hand when he came out from his room. I went to the children’s room for my duties and then l heard Peter shouting from the kitchen, ‘Jesus’.
The case has been adjourned till today October 10th for further hearing.
