Senior Partner, F. Boma Ayomide Alabi, a lawyer representing embattled Danish husband, Peter Nielsen Schau, who reportedly killed singer, Alizee, has given a moral boost to her client.

The alleged murder occurred on Thursday, April 5, 2018, at their Banana Island residence but public opinion already found him guilty.

Alabi, who works at a legal firm, Primera Africa Legal (PAL), thinks her client who has been cooperative with investigators, can only be proven guilty until trial is concluded.

She condemned the “largely inaccurate and speculative public and media narrative” developed against her client in a report compiled by Naij News.

“He has not been charged with any crime yet. The cause of death is still unknown.

"It is in the interest of justice that an opportunity is availed Mr. Nielsen to defend himself and that the investigation is transparent, factual and unbiased.

“The Nigeria police must allow Mr Nielsen access to his lawyers. In the eyes of the law, he is presumed innocent till proven guilty after an adversarial trial process.

“We, therefore, plead that no one rushes to judgment and that we allow the law take its course,” Schau's lawyer mentioned in a statement.

Her comments follows a previous note released by the Lagos State Police Command which submitted following an autopsy that Alizee suffered extreme violence prior to death.

The observation was made from visible marks on her body.
