Maryam Sanda, wife of Bilyamin Bello, son of ex- Peoples Democratic Party Chairman, Haliru Bello, has been accused of stabbing her husband to death.
Maryam is reported to have stabbed Bello to death after accusing him of infidelity. She is the daughter of embattled former Aso Savings Bank boss, Hajia Maimuna Aliyu.
According to reports, she stabbed him in his neck and chest while he slept, then rushed him to the hospital. He was confirmed dead at the hospital.
It wouldn’t be the first time Maryam had attacked her husband, having reportedly bitten his ear off once in a previous fight.
The late Bello had reportedly complained to family and friends about her violent nature, and had been advised to leave the house and divorce her.
He has already been buried according to Islamic rites.
The Federal Capital Territory Police Command spokesman, Anjuguri Manzah, confirmed the incident, adding that “a female suspect” was in custody.
“Maryam had attacked Bilyamin before the latest incident, which unfortunately led to his death. The two got married about two years ago when the former PDP chairman persuaded his son to marry Maryam. Everyone was shocked by Bilyamin’s death; it was sudden, unexpected and tragic,” a source told Punch.
