The police have filed murder charges against a woman who allegedly murdered her husband at their residence in Abuja weekend.

Police had filed a two-count charge of murder against Mrs. Sanda, making a case for the death penalty.

Sanda reportedly stabbed the victim, the son of Haliru Bello, a former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to death based on the suspicion that he was cheating on her.

"The presiding judge, Yusuf Halilu ruled that suspect be remanded in Suleja prison and the matter has been adjourned to December 7th for further hearing". Before the commencement of the court proceedings, she read from the Quran.

She was said to have rushed him to a hospital where he died.

The Command said it chose to retain Maryam in its custody instead of remanding her in prison considering the fact that she is nursing a baby.

Attempt by her council to ask for bail orally was turned down by the court, which insisted the police have concluded their investigation.

"It is not proper to send the defendant back to the custody of the prosecution once arraignment has been done", the judge added.
In the statement by its spokesman, Anjuguri Manzah, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, DSP, the FCT Police Command also disclosed that it has secured a remand order for two weeks from the FCT High Court in respect of the suspect, "pending the completion of investigations".

"You thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 221 of the Penal Code Law".
