The Police Command in the FCT says it is investigating the death of the son of a former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman, Bilyamin Bello.
The Public Relations Officer of the Command, DSP Anjuguri Manzah, disclosed this in an interview on Monday in Abuja.
Manzah said that immediately Maitama Police Division received the information about the death, it went to the scene and arrested the suspect.
He explained that the FCT command had since taken over the case from Maitama Division, and that the suspect was in its custody.
According to him, investigation was ongoing, and that the case would be charged to court and “justice will take its course.”
According to Punch, Bello had been stabbed to death by his wife Maryam Sanda.
The couple, who have a daughter together, had according to Punch been having marital troubles.
A friend of Bello who spoke to Punch said the deceased had just returned to his home from the hospital after part of his ear was bitten off by Sanda.
Bilyamin Bello had been reportedly advised to leave his house, and was planning to divorce his wife before he was killed.
The source told Punch:
Maryam had attacked Bilyamin before the latest incident, which unfortunately led to his death.
The two got married about two years ago when the former PDP chairman persuaded his son to marry Maryam.
Everyone was shocked by Bilyamin’s death; it was sudden, unexpected and tragic.
