An FCT High Court in Maitama on Thursday dismissed a no case submission made by Maryam Sanda, accused of killing her husband, Bilyaminu Bello and ordered her to enter her defence.
Ruling on the submission on Thursday, the trial judge, Justice Yusuf Halilu held that from the preponderance of evidence of all the prosecution witnesses, a thick cloud has been formed by the prosecution making it important to call the other side to make their case.
“The submission of no case to answer by Maryam Sanda, the first defendant, is overruled. I call on the first defendant to enter her defence,” the judge held.
Halilu held that by the evidence adduced before him, the offence is punishable under Section 221 of the Penal Code.
” From the evidence of prosecution witnesses one to six adduced before me, a thick cloud seems to form around the case of the prosecution, making it impossible at this point of time for the other side not to be considered.
