The Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday, granted bail to Maryam Sanda, the woman who allegedly killed her husband, Bilyamin Bello.

Maryam, who is the daughter of Maimuna Aliyu, a former Aso Savings Bank executive, was arraigned by the police for allegedly killing the son of a former PDP Chairman, Mohammed Bello.

Maryam who is facing trial on allegations of homicide was granted bail by the Chief judge, Yusuf Halilu, based on medical reports which indicated that she is pregnant and ill.

Recall that Maryam’s counsel, Joseph Daudu, SAN, pleaded with the court to give his client a soft landing for her to seek proper medical attention at this early stage of her pregnancy.

The judge granted the bail following a new motion filed before the court by her counsel, Mr Joseph Daudu (SAN).

Halilu ordered Sanda to produce two sureties who must reside within the court’s jurisdiction and must have a landed property in the FCT.

The judge also ordered that the biological father of the defendant must sign an undertaking with the court to produce her on demand at every court sitting.

Halilu adjourned the case until March 19 for hearing.
