JUST IN: Danish Man Sentenced To Death By Hanging For Killing Nigerian Wife

Lagos high court sitting at the Tafawa Balewa Square has sentenced a Danish national, Peter Nielsen to death by hanging for killing his wife (Nigerian) and their daughter.

Gatekeepers News reports that on June 13, 2018, the state government had arraigned Nielsen before the court on a two-count charge of murder — the offence is contrary to Section 223 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos, 2015.

Nielsen was alleged to have killed his wife, Zainab, also known by her stage name as Alizee, and his three-and-a-half-year-old daughter on April 5, 2018, at about 3.45 am at their Banana Island residence in the Ikoyi area of the State.

The Presiding Judge, Bolanle Okikiolu-Ighile on Friday, sentenced Nielsen to death by hanging on both counts.

This is a developing story.
