Maryam Sanda weeping after being sentenced to death
A Nigerian woman, Maryam Sanda couldn't hold back tears after she was sentenced to death on Monday at the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court in Abuja.
She was found guilty of murder by Justice Yusuf Halilu who convicted her for the death of her husband, Bilyaminu Bello.
Justice Halilu made the pronouncement while delivering judgment on the protracted trial of Sanda.
In reaction to the judge’s pronouncement, Sanda wept profusely but was comforted by her lawyer and some officials of the Nigerian Correctional Service in the courtroom.
Sanda faced trial over an allegation of stabbing late Bilyaminu to death, son of former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Haliru Bello.
Her trial centred on a judicial drama that lasted almost three years due to delays, multiple adjournments, and failure of witnesses to appear in court among others.
She was later escorted to be detained at the correctional facility and allowed to exhausts her appeal rights.
