Maryam Sanda, Mother, Brother Arraigned For Allegedly Killing Husband

She is being arraigned alongside her mother Maimuna Sanda, her brother Aliyu Sanda and one Sadiya.
They are standing trial on two counts of culpable homicide and tampering with the scene of crime, to which they all entered a not guilty plea.
Subsequently, their counsel, Mr Joseph Daudu, requested for bail, with a medical report attached to the application, noting that the court should consider the fact that Sanda is a nursing mother.
For the other defendants, Mr Daudu also argued that the offence for which they are standing trial is bailable.
The prosecutor, however, relied on his counter-affidavit to ask the court to deny bail. Mr Jacob Idachaba argued that while he sympathizes with the baby, it is not sufficient reason to ask for bail.
As for the other three defendants, he argued that they ought to be in prison custody pending the determination of their trial, but however, left the bail decision to the discretion of the court.
Ruling has been adjourned to 3:00 pm.
