Save for the help of forensic experts, Peter Nielson, a Danish, would have successfully covered up the alleged murder of his wife, Zainab, and their three-year-old daughter, Petra, at their Banana Island home in Lagos.
THISDAY gathered yesterday that Nielson had gone at great lengths to cleverly wipe off traces of blood stains after he allegedly killed his wife and daughter.
Giving an update on the murder case, the state Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, who said Nielson has been charged with first degree murder, revealed that forensic experts traced the blood with the use of special chemical reagents.
He said forensic examination of evidence from the Banana Island residence showed traces of blood stains that were cleverly wiped.
The police boss added that the forensics helped with investigation because initial reports suggested that the woman was strangled and their daughter suffocated.
