An FCT High Court on Monday sentenced Maryam Sanda, the woman who  stabbed her husband to death, Bilyaminu, son of a former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Haliru Bello, to death by hanging.

Delivering judgment, Justice Yusuf Halilu, convicted her on circumstantial evidence.

The killing was premeditated, the police said.

The police accused Sanda of stabbing her husband with a broken bottle at about 3:50a.m. on  Nov. 18, 2017

The police also accused Maimuna Aliyu, Sanda’s mother; Aliyu, her brother, and Sadiya Aminu, her housemaid, of tampering with evidence by cleaning the blood and other proofs from the crime scene, but charges were later dropped.
