Court Fixes April 4 For Ruling On Alleged Husband Killer, Maryam Sanda’s No-Case Submission

An FCT High Court in Maitama, Abuja, on Tuesday fixed April 4 for ruling in the no-case submission filed by Maryam Sanda, who allegedly killed her husband, Bilyaminu Bello.

Maryam was alleged to have killed Bello on November 19, 2017, through multiple stabbing and was arraigned alongside three other persons.

NAN reports that the three other persons — Maimuna Aliyu, Maryam’s mother; Aliyu Sanda, her brother; and Sadiya Aminu, her housemaid — were charged with conspiracy in the murder case.

They all pleaded not guilty to the charge.


At the resumed sitting, counsel to Sanda, Mr. Olusegun Jolaawo, told the court that the prosecution had no case against Sanda to warrant her to enter defence.

Jolaawo said the evidence brought by the prosecution before the court had been done away with through earlier cross examination of prosecution witnesses.

He urged the court to discharge his client because she had no case to answer.

Counsel to the second, third and fourth defendants, Mr. Hussein Musa, also urged the court to discharge and acquit the defendants because the prosecution had not adduced enough evidence to warrant them to enter defence.

But the prosecuting counsel, Fidelis Ogbobe, told the court that the prosecution had made enough evidence to warrant the defendants to enter defence.

He said there was enough evidence that linked the first defendant and others to the crime, which they had to answer.

Ogbobe, therefore, urged the court to reject the no-case submission of the defendants and compel them to enter defence.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the prosecution closed its case on January 22 after calling six witnesses.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
