Below are pictures showing people wailing and crying at a High Court in Abuja where Maryam Sanda was sentenced to death.
Maryam was sentenced by the court for stabbing her husband, Bilyaminu Bello, son of former National Chairman of the PDP.
Maryam stabbed her husband on November 17, 2019, after she found a text message on his phone which led to suspicion of infidelity.
She was arrested by police who stated that the action was premeditated and got her charged on two counts of murder.
As soon as the judgment was pronounced, Maryam fled the dock but was quickly caught by court officials.
After she was dragged back to the court, Maryam could be heard shouting and wailing saying “Inna lilahi Inna roji hun”, as her family and lawyer try to console her. She was heard saying, “I was fasting and praying … Ya Allah, why?”.
