BREAKING: Court sentences Maryam Sanda to death by hanging for killing her husband
Justice Yusuf Halilu of High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Monday morning, convicted Maryam Sanda accused of killing her husband, Bilyaminu Haliru Bello.
She was thereby sentenced to death by hanging until she breathes her last.
The judge held that she was convicted as charged by the police for killing her husband in the night of November 18, 2017 in the home at Wuse II in Abuja.
According to the judge, Sanda failed to explain the death of her husband being the last person seen with him and held that she stabbed her with a knife.
The judge said, “It is not only unfortunate but also wicked.
“You Maryam Sanda is guilty of murder of your husband, Bilyaminu Bello. You are hereby convicted as charged.”
The shout of “Inna Llillahi wa inna illahi Rojihun” rent the courtroom from Sanda when she heard her conviction.
This coupled with the rowdiness in the court forced the judge to go back to his chamber, promising to come out to sentence her.
