The Nigeria police have come out in public to explain why they have not taken the spouse and murderer of the late fast rising musical artiste Alizee, and her daughter.
According to them, it is a normal norm as they are following the sequential process because the man is not a citizen of Nigeria.
Imohimi Edgal, who is the Police Commissioner yesterday has suggested that there were trials by the suspect in order to cover up his crime, which forensic experts traced with the use of special chemical reagents.
“The autopsy revealed that Mrs Zaynab Nielsen suffered trauma as a result of the impact on her head. Secondly, forensic experts revealed that there were blood stains from the couple’s bedroom to the kitchen.
Though it was cleverly wiped from the floor, the experts were still able to detect it with the application of special chemical reagents. In addition, blood stains were also discovered on the wash hand basins and on the hand towel the suspect used in wiping his hands after the commission of the offence. Although it was cleverly cleaned up as well, the experts were able to discover that too.”
He also expressed that the Danish embassy was cooperating very well with them and they have made legal representation for the suspect available.
“I spoke personally with the ambassador apart from the official correspondence. They also arranged for counsel for their citizen so they are following the process very closely. We did not parade the suspect for obvious reasons. Do not forget he’s not a Nigerian and so, there are diplomatic connotations.
“This is a man being accused of first degree murder. So, it would have been wrong for the police who are going to prosecute him, to also begin to parade him before such prosecution.
However, he was charged to an open court. We are concerned with ensuring that he is diligently prosecuted and justice is done.”
