A prosecution witness, Umar Muhammed, told an FCT High Court ,Maitama that he saw several wounds on the body of Bilyaminu, the deceased son of former PDP Chairman, Alhaji Bello Halliru.

Muhammed, who was testifying in the culpable murder case against Maryam Sanda, accused of  allegedly killing Bilyaminu, said:“I saw wounds on his lap and neck.

He said that he also saw bite marks on Bilyaminu’s chest and on his right finger.

“I saw Maryam and her mother at the police station but I do not know who inflicted the injuries on Bilyaminu,” he said.

Muhammed, said he got a call from Bilyaminu’s family member at 5 a.m. on Nov. 19, 2017, informing him that Bilyaminu had died.

He said that he drove other family members to the Maitama Police station and also to the Maitama General Hospital where the corpse of the deceased was retrieved from the morgue.

“After he was confirmed dead, We took the corpse to  the Central Mosque where I helped in preparaing the remains for burial,” he said.

When cross- examined by defendants counsel, Ms Regina Okotie- Eboh and Mr Musa Hussein, Umar told the court that he was not aware that it’s only a relative or a professional that is allowed to prepare the remains for burial.

Justice Yusuf Halilu after listening to his testimony adjourned the case until Dec. 3 for continuation of hearing.

NAN reports that Sanda was docked alongside her brother, Aliyu Sanda; her mother, Maimuna Aliyu and one Sadiya, who were accused of assisting her to conceal the evidence by cleaning the blood of the deceased from the scene of the crime.

They pleaded not guilty to the charges. (NAN)
