Maryam Sanda: ‘I killed my husband because I found nude photos on his phone’

Alleged husband killer, Maryam Sanda, has told an Abuja court that the fatal fight that led to her stabbing her husband, Bilyaminu Bello to death in November 2017, was triggered when she found nude photos of another woman on his phone.

According to the Police Prosecutor, Josephine Onyinyedu, Sanda who is the daughter of daughter of former Aso Savings boss, Hajia Maimuna Aliyu, had written in her initial statement to the police that the discovery of the nude photos on her husband’s phone caused the fight which led to his death.

Sanda had reportedly stabbed Bello who was the son of one-time Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Haliru Bello, in the chest, neck and genital area leading to his untimely death.

At the hearing which resumed on Tuesday, January 22, Onyinyedu told the court that Sanda in her statement which was tendered in court as exhibit, stated that she saw the nude photos a lady had sent to her husband on November 20, 2017, and that when she challenged him, it led into a fight.

Onyinyedu told the court that the suspect, in her statement, said during the fight in their Maitama residence, her husband had slipped on a wet floor and then fell over a broken shisha pot.

At the trial, the prosecuting counsel attempted to present to the court a medical report from the hospital where Sanda had rushed Bello to on the day of the incident but the defense counsel objected to the presentation, insisting that it must be the doctor that released the medical report that must present the report to the court.

The case was then adjourned to February 27 for the continuation of trial.
