The Lagos State Government this morning arraigned the Danish man, Peter Nielsen, who allegedly killed his wife, popular singer Alizee and their three-year-old daughter, Petra, at their Banana Island home in April.
Peter Nielsen was arraigned before Justice Bola Okikiolu-Ighile, at the Lagos High Court sitting in the Igbosere area of the island on two counts of murder, an offense contrary to Section 223 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos, 2015.
He, however, pleaded not guilty when the charges were read to him.
Before his arraignment today, a Chief Magistrate Court sitting in the Yaba area of Lagos had ordered his remand in prison custody.
The police told the Magistrate that Neilsen hit his wife’s head against the wall several times, inflicting fatal injuries which led to her death. He was also alleged to have poisoned their daughter and tried to cover up the said murder incidents as a domestic accident.
The reason for the murder is yet to be unraveled as the suspect still insists he is not guilty of murder.
