Alleged Husband Killer: Court strikes out Maryam Sanda’s no-case submission

The no-case submission filed by Maryam Sanda who is standing trial for allegedly killing her husband has been struck out.

The judge, Justice Yusuf Halilu, in his ruling today, held that the police has established a prima facie case against the first defendant which she should answer to.

He ordered Sanda to enter her defence on the next adjourned date.

However, the judge upheld the no-case submissions of Sanda’s mother; Maimuna Aliyu, brother; Aliyu Sanda, and housemaid, Sadiya.

The trio were arraigned alongside the first defendant for allegedly tampering with evidence by cleaning the crime scene.

But the judge ruled that the prosecution failed to show evidence proving that the second, third and fourth defendants actually perpetuated that act.
Thus, the judge struck out the case against them.

The matter has been adjourned to May 6 for Sanda to open her defence.
