Mrs. Maryam Sanda, a convicted husband killer, is heading to the Supreme Court. The woman will, today, at the Supreme Court, begin a legal battle to save her life from the death sentence passed on her by a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory and upheld by the Court of Appeal in Abuja. The convict, who is a mother of one, was ordered by the high court to be hanged until she dies having been found guilty of killing her husband, Bilyaminu Bello, a cousin of former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Haliru Bello.

Her death sentence by Justice Halilu Yusuf was on December 4, 2020, upheld by the Abuja division of the Court of Appeal in a unanimous judgment delivered by Justice Stephen Ada. A hearing notice just sighted by DAILY POST showed that the Apex Court has slated the appeal by the convict for adjudication before a 5-man panel of Justices. Mrs. Sanda in her appeal is urging the Supreme Court to void and set aside the concurrent findings and conviction by both the high court and the Court of Appeal.

Her legal team is billed to be led by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, and former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, Mr. Joseph Bodunde Daudu. She is claiming a miscarriage of justice in how her trial was conducted and the death sentence passed on her. Specifically, she wants the Supreme Court to resolve in her favor, the allegations of denial of fair hearing she leveled against the FCT high court. Mrs. Sanda was on January 27, 2020, convicted by the High Court for stabbing her husband, a real estate developer, to death at their Abuja residence in 2017.
