Police seek death penalty for wife of ex-PDP chairman's son

FCT Police Command Public Relations Officer, Anjuri Manzah, explained that the suit against Maryam was filed at FCT High Court No: 32 and charged of culpable homicide under section 224 of the Penal Code.

The late Haliru was the son of Alhaji Bello Haliru, former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

But Sahara Reporters say an FCT High Court in Abuja ordered her to be remanded in Suleja Prison custody.

The command, in a statement yesterday, explained that the suspect can not be transferred to prison custody on remand because she has a six-month-old baby.

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

He, therefore, adjourned the matter till December 7. Before the commencement of the court proceedings, she read from the Quran.

Maryam covered her face a with green scarf to prevent being photographed by the media.

Bilyaminu Haliru-Bello died shortly after the attack, police said.

Sanda was arraigned On Friday before Justice Yusuf Halilu, who refused an oral application for bail by her lawyer.

Her counsel Hussein Musa pleaded that she should be remanded in police custody as she's a nursing mother.

"It is not proper to send the defendant back to the custody of the prosecution once arraignment has been done", the judge added.

Idachaba said the charge could still be amended owing to new facts he said emerged after further investigation was conducted on the matter.

Sanda was alleged to have stabbed the deceased in the chest with a broken bottle.
