Earlier comments by the police revealed that Alizee had marks of violence on her body.

"On the 5th day of April, 2018, at about 11am, it received a complaint from the Facility Manager of Bellavista 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 Neilsen, 37 years old, crying in the early hours of the morning as she was being manhandled by her husband, one Mr Peter Neilsen, a 53-year old citizen of Denmark.

"The little girl estimated the time she heard her sister’s cry to be 0345hours.

"Two bodies, identified as that of Zainab Nelson and her 4 years old baby, Petra Neilsen were found in the kitchen. 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.

"On closer examination, visible marks of violence were seen on the bodies, thus the corpses were photographed and evacuated to Lagos Island General Hospital for autopsy.

"Meanwhile, letters have been sent to the embassy of Denmark intimating it that Lagos State Police Command is investigating Mr. Peter Neilsen, a citizen of Denmark for an alleged case of murder.
