Bilyamin Muhammed Bello, son of a former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and one-time Minister, Dr. Haliru Bello, has been stabbed to death by his wife, Maryam, in Abuja.
His wife, who is the main suspect, is a daughter of former Aso Savings boss, Hajia Maimuna Aliyu, who was recently nominated into the board of the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).
“The FCT Police Command has commenced investigation into the matter,” spokesman, Anjuguri Manzah stated.
“The case has been transferred to the Homicide Section for discreet investigation.”
It was reported that the jealous wife was uncomfortable with the text messages her late husband had been receiving from some women which made her attack her husband.
“They were at home when the wife became berserk over some text messages, including one allegedly suspected to be from a female banker.
“After engaging in a shouting match, the wife was embroiled in fighting with her husband before heading to the kitchen where she picked a knife to stab Bilyamin three times, including on his private parts.
“Drenched with blood, Bilyamin fought hard by crawling out of the couple’s flat to ask for help from neighbours.
“Upon hearing his distress call, neighbours, who had heard the exchange of words and banging of doors at the flat, ferried Bilyamin to a hospital.
“Unfortunately, the husband died in the hospital. The incident was reported to the police and Maryam was arrested by homicide detectives.”
THEWILL gathered that Maryam was taken to her residence by homicide detectives for a search, fingerprints and forensic investigation and was saved from being mobbed by angry siblings and relatives of the deceased husband.
Maryam, clinging to her seven-month old baby girl, looked remorseful and burst into tears after being led into the flat where she allegedly killed her husband.
She is being detained by the police while the deceased was buried yesterday after the Janazarprayer at the Central Mosque in Abuja.
