Maryam Sanda, who allegedly murdered her husband over allegations of infidelity, was on Thursday re-arraigned in court.

Sanda was charged alongside her mother, Maimuna Aliyu, brother, Aliyu Sanda, and another defendant Sadiya Aminu for the murder of Biliaminu Bello, the son of former PDP chairman, Haliru Bello.

The defendants are facing charges bordering on culpable homicide and obstruction of justice.

Maimuna Aliyu is also facing another count of fraud.

The couple were married for barely two years before the unfortunate incident happened in November.
