The wife of the late son of former PDP chairman Maryam Sanda who was arrested late 2017 for allegedly killing her husband, Bilyamin Bello, told the trial court that she is three months pregnant.
According to news report during the court trial on Monday Maryam had begged Justice Yusuf Halilu of the Federal High Court in Abuja to reconsider an earlier application which was filed for her to be released on bail pending the determination of the murder charge against her.
Speaking on her behalf was her legal representative Mr. Joseph Daudu, SAN who urged the court to take pity on her client who he said would require proper medical attention at this early stage of her pregnancy.
The defence lawyer further contended that the Nigerian Police Force failed to secure the consent of the Director of Public Prosecution, DPP, before it filed the charge.
However,the case was adjourned till Wednesday by Justice Halilu to decide whether or not defendant should be released on bail due to new development(claimed pregnancy).
