Police explains why it’s difficult to remand wife who murdered son of ex-PDP chairman


The federal capital territory (FCT) police command says it is difficult to remand Maryam Sanda who allegedly murdered Bilyaminu Bello, son of a former chairman of PDP, TheCable reports.


Sanda reportedly stabbed the victim to death as a result of suspicion that he was cheating on her. The suspect has been arraigned before an FCT high court on a two-count charge. .

In the charge sheet seen by TheCable, Sanda was accused of committing an offence punishable by death. “That you Mariam Sanda Female, Adult of N0 4 Pakail Close, Wuse 2 Abuja, on or about the at 19/11/2017 at about 0350 hours at Pakail Close, Wuse zone 2, Abuja within the Abuja Judicial Division, did commit the offence of culpable homicide punishable with death.

In that you caused the death of one Bilyaminu Bello Halliru, male of N0 4 Pakail close, Wuse zone 2, Abuja by stabbing him on the chest with broken bottle which eventually led to his death, you thereby committed an offence punishable under section 221 of the Penal Code Law,” the sheet read.

“That you Mariam Sanda Female, Adult of N0 4 Pakail Close, Wuse 2 Abuja, on or about the at 19/11/2017 at about 0350 hours at Pakail Close, Wuse zone 2, Abuja within the Abuja Judicial Division, did commit the offence of causing grievous hurt. .

In that you stabbed one Bilyaminu Bello Halliru, male of N0 4 Pakail close, Wuse zone 2, Abuja by stabbing him on the chest with broken bottle on the neck thereby endangering his life, you thereby committed an offence contrary to section 240 (g) and punishable under section 247 of the Penal Code Law.”

Anjuguri Manzah, police public relations officer in FCT, said though the command had secured an order to detain the suspect for two weeks, it will not be easy because she has a six-month-old baby.

Manzah said:

“It should also be noted that this present charge is as a result of preliminary findings. At the end of the investigation, additional findings will determine whether the current charge will be amended,” he said.
