The FCT Police Command says that although it has filed charges against Maryam Sanda, the married woman who allegedly stabbed her husband, Bilyaminu Bello, the son of the former PDP Chairman, Haliru Bello, they are finding it difficult to detain her.

Recall that on Sunday, November 19, 2017, Sanda reportedly stabbed her husband to death over allegations of infidelity after she saw a text message on his phone sent to him by his mistress.

In a statement signed by the FCT Police Public Relations Officer [PPRO], Anjuguri Manzah, the Command is finding it difficult detain her after obtaining a court order to do so for two weeks because she is nursing a baby.

The Cable reports that the file sheet against Sanda included a count of culpable homicide for stabbing her husband in the chest with a broken bottle and another for causing grievous hurt for the same offence.
