Alleged Husband Killer: Court Denies Maryam Sanda Bail
The Federal High Court in Abuja has denied Maryam Sanda, the woman who allegedly killed her husband, bail.
Maryam, who is the daughter of Maimuna Aliyu, a former Aso Saving Bank executive, was arraigned by the police for allegedly killing Bilyamin, son of a former PDP Chairman, Mohammed Bello.
She was said to have stabbed her husband several times at his Maitama residence in Abuja a few weeks ago, based on allegations of infidelity.
Bilyamin was reportedly rushed to the hospital where he eventually died while Maryam was consequently charged to court.
On December 4, the FCT Police Command filed two counts of culpable homicide against her.
Although she pleaded not guilty, the accused was remanded in prison custody.
The development took a different turn on Thursday last week when the police amended the charges, joining the mother of the accused, her brother, and one of her relatives in the suit.
However, the trial could not continue as the prosecutor said efforts by the police to serve the three other defendants proved abortive.
Giving his ruling on the bail application on Thursday, Justice Halilu acknowledged the medical report presented by the defence counsel, Joseph Daudu, to request for Maryam’s bail based on her health status.FOR MORE FRESH STORIES, DOWNLOAD BOUNCE NEWS APP HERE
