A new twist has developed in the stabbing to death of Biliyamin, son of a former Peoples Democratic Party National Chairman, Bello Haliru Mohammed, on Saturday, November 18th by his wife, Maryam Sanda.
WESTERN POST has learnt that Maryam and her mother are moving to change the story of the way and manner Biliyamin met his death.
Biliyamin was allegedly stabbed three times on his back and severally on his private parts by his wife at their Maitama, Abuja residence over alleged infidelity.
The couple got married on October 2015 and they have a child together.
Maryam is the daughter of former Aso Savings Abuja boss, Hajia Maimuna Aliyu.
It was gathered that after she saw a love message from another woman on his phone, Maryam first hit her husband, almost slashing off his ear with a knife.
Both of them initially resolved the matter and Biliyamin went to bed. But while Biliyamin was deep asleep, his wife later stabbed him three times on the back. She also moved to cut off his genital.
After stabbing him, she drove him to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Hajia Aliyu, who is no longer with Maryam’s father, was initially shocked and horrified by her daughter’s action.
She sobbed uncontrollably. But WESTERN POST has learnt that she quickly pulled herself together and cautioned her daughter against accepting that she stabbed her husband to death.
A source close to the scene said the duo of Hajia Aliyu and her daughter are now claiming Biliyamin died after a domestic accident.
“They have even warned the nurses at the hospital Maryam drove her husband to after the horrific attack against disclosing the deceased was stabbed to death,” said the source.
The indication that she had changed the story emerged when Maryam’s mum was said to have sent a story to one of her family friends, informing them that she lost her son in-law who allegedly died in a domestic accident.
“This is very sad,” the source said.
Biliyamin’s remains were buried on Sunday according to Islamic rites. The Janaiza was conducted after Zuhr prayer at National Mosque, Abuja.
