THE po­lice have said the re­port of a post-mortem ex­am­i­na­tion of the late Nige­rian singer, Zainab Nielsen, aka Al­izee, shows that she died from trauma.

The La­gos State Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice, Ed­gal Imo­himi, said the trauma em­anated from the in­juries in­flicted on her head.

Zainab and her three-year-old daugh­ter, Pe­tra, were al­legedly mur­dered on April 5 by the singer’s Dan­ish hus­band, Peter Nielsen, in their res­i­dence at Bel­lasta Tow­ers, Ba­nana Is­land, Ikoyi.

Peter, 53, was ar­rested and sub­se­quently ar­raigned on two counts of mur­der last Thurs­day at a Yaba Chief Mag­is­trate’s Court.

Imo­himi on Mon­day said the au­topsy re­port showed that Zainab suf­fered trauma.

“Se­condly, the foren­sic ex­perts re­vealed that there were blood­stains from the cou­ple’s bed­room to the kitchen. Even though the blood­stains were clev­erly wiped from the floor, they were still able to de­tect the stains with the ap­pli­ca­tion of spe­cial chem­i­cal reagents. In ad­di­tion, blood­stains were also dis­cov­ered on the wash hand basins and on the hand towel. Al­though it was clev­erly cleaned up as well,” he added.
