Evelyn Gimba, the housekeeper of Peter Nielson, the Danish man accused of killing his wife, Zainab Ali aka Alizee, has given her testimony as the murder trial resumed yesterday.
The trial which resumed at the Igbosere High Court saw Evelyn telling the court during a cross examination that she never saw her employers in any act of violence or rift.
”I never witnessed any violence between my madam (deceased) and the husband (defendant). They were always happy and I never saw Peter (defendant) in a drunken state.”
She continued by stating that on the day of the incident she saw bruises on the defendant’s forehead and hand when he came out of the room.
“I tried to open the door leading to the kitchen but it didn’t open so I went downstairs to the palour. I called one of the children’s number but it was switched off, I knocked at the door several times before it was opened for me. I then asked the girl that opened the door what type of sleep she was still sleeping up to that time. The girl then told me that my madam and her husband were fighting the previous night, I saw little bruises on the defendant’s forehead and hand when he came out from his room. I went to the children’s room for my duties and then l heard Peter shouting from the kitchen, ‘Jesus’.
