According to LIB, the Kogi-born singer and her 4-year-old daughter was today murdered by her Italian husband at their Banana Island home in Lagos.
“We gather that she was murdered this morning April 5th along with her 4-year old daughter, Petra Nielsen by her Italian husband Peter Nielsen at their home at Ocean Parade towers in Banana Island,” the blog reported.
Confirming the news, a member of her team told the blog, “Its really a shocking and sad development. We all woke up to the sad news of her death this morning and to find out that the homicide was committed by her husband makes it all the more sad. The Police has been brought in to the case and we’ll share more details as we get them.”
It is unclear what led to the homicide, however the bodies of the singer and her daughter have been deposited in a mortuary, while the police continue their investigation.
LIB adds that “Alizee is a Kogi State born singer who signed a two year record deal with an Asian record label, Petra Entertainment in 2017. The record deal came with a brand new Ford explorer, a house in Banana Island and international distribution with affiliates of her record company in Asia.”
It is unclear if the husband has been apprehended as at press time.
