A Federal Capital Territory High Court in Abuja has found Mariam Sanda guilty of the murder of her husband, Bilyaminu Bello, and has been sentenced to death by hanging.
Justice Yusuf Halilu made the declaration while delivering judgment on the protracted trial of Missus Sanda on Monday in the nation’s capital.
Sanda is facing trial over an allegation of stabbing her husband Bilyaminu to death in 2017.
But the accused who was initially remanded in custody has repeatedly pleaded not guilty to the crime.
The court ruled that Mariam will be remanded in Suleja correctional service pending when she exhausts her right to appeal.
