Maryam Sanda has approached the Court of Appeal, Abuja Division, asking the court to set aside the verdict and acquit her after being sentenced to death by hanging following the murder of her husband, Bilyaminu Bello.
Recall that Sanda was sentenced to death by hanging by Justice Yusuf Halilu on Jan. 27.
According to reports in her appeal she expressed that the trial judge “was tainted by bias and prejudices.”
According to her, this led to the denial of her right to fair hearing and her consequent conviction.
No date has been fixed for hearing in the matter.
