A magistrate court in Yaba on Tuesday adjourned the trial of a Dane, Peter Nielsen, accused of killing his wife, Zainab, also known as Alizee, and their three-year-old daughter, Petra.
The court also ordered the continued detention of Mr. Nielsen, 53, until June 28 when his trial at a high court for the April 5 alleged murder would begin.
Many rights activists under the auspices of Women Arise NGO led by Joe Okei Odumakin besieged the court on Tuesday demanding justice.
At the press conference held after the court hearing, Alizee’s father, Chris Madaki, lamented the supposed preferential treatment of his daughter’s alleged killer.
Mr Nielsen was first remanded in prison when he appeared in court on April 11 as the authorities awaited legal advice from the state director of public prosecution.
