Appeal Court affirms Maryam Sanda’s Death Sentence

The Court of Appeal in Abuja today Friday, December 4, 2020,  affirmed the death sentence on Maryam Sanda, who was sentenced to death for murdering  her husband, Bilyaminu Bello, in November 2017.

Justice Yusuf Halilu of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Maitama, Abuja, had in his judgment delivered on January 27, 2020, held that circumstantial evidence proved that Maryam “fatally” stabbed her husband to death in Abuja on November 19, 2017.

Maryam, a mother of two, had on February 19, 2020, filed 20-ground notice of appeal, praying for an order discharging, and acquitting her.

She appealed against the  judgment that convicted her, and claimed she was  denied of her right to fair hearing.
