A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has struck out an application for bail by Maryam Sanda, daughter-in-law of former Peoples Democratic Party chairman, Haliru Bello.
Mrs. Sanda, is facing trial on allegations of homicide after the alleged killing of her husband, Bilyamin Bello last year over allegations of extramarital affairs.
Bilyaminu was one of the sons of a former chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Bello Haliru.
It is her second attempt at bail since she was sensationally arraigned for murder by the FTC Police in November 2017.
A previous request for bail made by Mrs. Sanda’s lawyer, Joseph Daudu, had been refused by the court in December.
Mr. Daudu made another request on Monday which was once again turned down as the hijab-wearing mother remains in custody.
In his ruling Wednesday, presiding judge, Halilu Halilu, struck out the application saying it lacked merit, PT writes.
