Court Sentences Maryam Sanda To Death For Killing Husband


Maryam Sanda, woman accused of killing her husband Bilyamin Mohammed Bello, a few years ago was on Monday sentenced to death by a high court sitting at the federal capital territory (FCT) Abuja.

Her late husband Bello, nephew of Haliru Mohammed, a former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was stabbed to death after a minor disagreement with his wife in November, 2017.

Sanda was arrested shortly after that and she has been facing trial since then.

The court has now, three years later found her guilty of killing her husband. She was sentenced to death by hanging.

In reaction to the judge’s pronouncement, Sanda wept profusely but was comforted by her lawyer and some officials of the Nigerian Correctional Service in the courtroom.

Below is a photo of correctional centre officials leading her out of the court.
