Court May Retract Maryam Sanda Death Sentenced, Here's What Happens


Maryam Sanda who was condemned to death for the executing
of her better half, Bilyaminu Bello has proceeded onward to file and appeal.

Maryam Sanda filed appeal against capital punishment that will take her life gave by a Federal High Court in Abuja, she solicited the Court from Appeal in Abuja to put aside the decision and vindicate her as capital punishment if death-sentenced have been tainted by bias and prejudices.”

Maryam in her appeal alleged that she wasn’t given a fair hearing and was convicted on circumstantial evidence by the trial judge who reportedly failed to rule on her preliminary objection, challenging the charge preferred against her.

Maryam Sanda stated in her application;

The honourable trial judge erred in law when having taken arguments on the appellant’s preliminary objection to the validity of the charge on the 19th of March, 2018 failed to rule on it at the conclusion of the trial or at any other time. “The trial judge exhibited bias against the defendant in not ruling one way or the other on the said motion challenging his jurisdiction to entertain the charge and therefore fundamentally breached the right to a fair hearing of the defendant.”

Maryam added that the trial judge erred and misdirected himself by usurping the role of the police when he assumed the duty of an Investigating Police Officer (IPO) as contained in Page 76 of his judgment.

She added;

“The circumstantial evidence which the trial court relied upon in its application of the last seen doctrine does not lead to the conclusion that the defendant is responsible for the death of the deceased.”<
