Maryam Sanda Who Allegedly Stabbed Her Hubby to Death Remanded in Suleja Prisons


Amid tension and high emotion, an Abuja High Court on Friday remanded in Suleja Prisons, Mrs. Maryam Sanda, who was alleged to have killed her husband, Bilyamin Bello, son of former PDP National Chairman, Mohammed Bello.

The FCT Command of the Nigerian Police had on Monday filed two counts of culpable homicide against her, to which she pleaded not guilty.

The police said the alleged killing was premeditated, and as such, they would be seeking a death penalty, should the accused be found guilty.

Maryam covered herself up with veil nobody could see her face. She was in tears with sympathetic family members all over her.

Attempts by her lawyer to ask for bail orally or alternatively allow her to remain in police custody was turned down by Justice Yusuf Halilu.

Subsequently, the trial was adjourned to December 7, 2017.

Bilyamin was allegedly killed in his Maitama home in Abuja on Saturday night by his wife who is the daughter of Maimuna Aliyu, a former Aso Saving Bank boss.

Reports say Maryam allegedly stabbed him several times based on allegations of infidelity after seeing a text message on his phone.

She later rushed him to the hospital where he eventually died.

The couple had a daughter together.
