Maryam Sanda Attempts To Run Away As Court Convicts Her Of Murdering Her Husband
Maryam Sanda To Die By Hanging
Maryam Sanda has been found guilty and convicted of murdering her husband, Bilyamin Mohammed Bello and has been sentenced to death by hanging.
A federal capital territory (FCT) high court gave the verdict on Monday, 27th January 2020 in the case where Sanda stood trial on a two-count charge of culpable homicide.
She reportedly attempted fleeing after the court pronounced judgement but was held back by court and prison officials.
Bello, the nephew of Haliru Mohammed Bello, a former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was killed in November, 2017, Naija News recalls.
Bello was stabbed to death with a bottle in November, 2017 and the Police had charged Sanda with culpable homicide in the death of her husband.
She, however, pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge against her.
