A Danish, Peter Nielsen, 54, has been sentenced to death by hanging by a Lagos High Court, for killing his Nigerian wife and daughter.
He was convicted by Justice Bolanle Okikiolu-Ighile on two counts of murder brought against him by the Lagos State Government.
Nelsen was sentenced to death by hanging on both counts.
The Lagos State government had dragged him to court after he killed his wife and singer, Zainab, and their three-year-old daughter, Petra.
The government accused him of smothering Zainab and Petra to death at 3.45 am. at No. 4, Flat 17, Bella Vista Tower, Banana Island, Ikoyi, Lagos State.
When Nelson was arraigned before the court on June 13, 2018, he pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge levelled against him by the government.
