A Federal High Court in Abuja has denied A bail application by Maryam Sanda, the woman who allegedly killed her husband, Bilyamin Bello.
Maryam, who is the daughter of Maimuna Aliyu, a former Aso Savings Bank executive, was arraigned by the police for allegedly killing the son of a former PDP Chairman, Mohammed Bello.
Maryam’s counsel, Joseph Daudu, SAN, had pleaded with the court to give his client a soft landing for her to seek proper medical attention being at this early stage of her pregnancy.
The trial judge, Justice Yusuf Halilu struck out the application on Wednesday, for lacking in merit.
Halilu said, a notice of appeal has been made against the court’s earlier ruling, denying Maryam bail on December 14.
” The proper thing to have done is to file notice of discontinuance of the appeal but having not done that the new motion filed on 25/1/2018 was brought for the irritation of the court and the prosecution counsel, and it is thereby struck out.”
