Full details of how a jealous wife, Maryam Sanda, killed her husband, Bilyamin Bello, the son of the former National Chairman of PDP Mohammed Haliru Bello emerged yesterday from a witness who was there when the incident happened.
It was learnt that the young couple had been having issues but resolved until this final incident that claimed the life of young enterprising man.
She onceÂ bit part of his ear offÂ during an argument. Bello was treated at a hospital before returning home. Some report said he was advised to leave the house but he refused, only to be brutally attacked the second time. The couple had a daughter together.

It was learnt that the deceased also at the last minutes went to an ATM and withdrew cash to pay for the balance of the repair of his wifeâ€™s crashed car.
But Maryam was said to have demanded for a divorce with the threat of cutting off her husbandâ€™s manhood.
These facts were contained in the testimony of a witness, Habib Gajam (aka Gidado), which was published in the Lifestyle Section ofÂ inside are wa.com.ng
Gajam, who is a family friend, gave the graphic details of what transpired and how the embattled wife had tried to cover up the act.
Gajam said: â€œToday, I witnessed the most wicked and shameful display of arrogance in Bilyaminuâ€™s death case.
â€œAt about 9 to 10p.m. last nightÂ (Saturday),Â tension started to build between BilyaminuÂ and his wife, Maryam,Â at his residence.
â€œMaryam demanded a divorce with the threat of cutting off his manhood. Ibrahim Aliero, Bilyaminuâ€™s friend (in whose instance the drama started) intervened four times to stop Maryam from stabbing her husband.
â€œIbrahim called Auta (Maryamâ€™s uncle) and Abba (Bilyaminuâ€™s cousin), who had left the house moments before the drama started, to come and intervene.
â€œAfter a short calm, Maryam broke a bottle of groundnut and attempted to stab Bilyaminu, again, but this time he held both her hands and struggled to take the bottle from her, injuring himself in the process. Unrelenting and wild, she bit his finger.

â€œUncle Auta had arrived this time to calm the situation. They both committed to Uncle Auta to let go of the grievances (at least for the night).
â€œAfter the situation had become calm, Bilyaminu and his friend went to the Pharmacy to get his hand treated from the bite he sustained from Maryam.
â€œThey later went to the ATM and made a withdrawal to pay up the balance of a spare part for Maryamâ€™s crashed car. By 11pm, Bilyaminu and Ibrahim had gone back to a calm home. Abba (Bilyaminuâ€™s cousin) joined them in the living room.
â€œThey stayed till almost midnight and decided to call it a night.
In the emotional piece, Gajam related the parting words of Bilyamin to his cousin and others.
He also captured attempts by the detained wife to change the story at the police station in order to cover up her crime.
The witness said: â€œWhen Bilyaminu was seeing them off, he told Ibrahim that â€˜I donâ€™t want to go back until sheâ€™s asleepâ€™. They called it a day. Abba and Ibrahim left.
â€œAt around 2pm Sunday afternoon, family members were summoned to Maitama Hospital, where Bilyaminu was lying in a pool of his blood with multiple stabs on his chest, shoulder, a deep cut on his inner thigh and many bite wounds on his stomach.
â€œMaryam had confessed to stabbing him to the hospital authorities. Maitama Police Station was the next point of call.
â€œAt Maitama Station, where Maryam was asked to write her statement, story changed. She claimed they got involved in a fight and Bilyaminu sustained injuries from a broken Shisha pot and that she never stabbed or hit him.
â€œShe was later taken to the FCT Command in Garki II for further investigation. The police commissioner instructed that the crime scene should be visited.â€
Gajam explained: â€œTo the amazement of Abba (Bilyaminuâ€™s cousin) and Ibrahim (his friend), who are key witnesses in the investigation, bloodstains had been mopped up, murder weapon disappeared, but flower vases and shisha pot were broken to corroborate Maryamâ€™s earlier statement at the station.
â€œIn the midst of this tragedy and confusion, Maryam had the audacity and courage to change her story. More disgusting is her lack of remorse and respect for the victimâ€™s family.
