Maryam Sanda, the lady who stabbed her husband, Bilyaminu Bello, to death at their home in Abuja in November last year, today made a shocking confession in court.
According to Maryam, she is currently three months pregnant for her deceased husband. The trial of Maryam for homicide commenced yesterday at the FCT High court in Jabi, Abuja. and is currently ongoing.
Sanda, whose trial started on Monday, asked the presiding judge, Justice Yusuf Halilu, to accede to her earlier application for bail.
Joseph Daudu, Sanda’s lawyer, asked that the judge “pity” his client and grant her bail to seek proper medical attention for her pregnancy.
The state’s lawyer, James Idachaba, however opposed the bail application, stating that the claim of Sanda’s 3 months pregnancy had to be proved, as the evidence provided was insufficient.
Justice Halilu adjourned the case until Wednesday to determine whether the court would grant Sanda bail on the basis of her pregnancy claim.
