VIDEO: Killer wife Maryam Sanda studies the Quran in court

You already know something about Maryam Sanda, daughter of Maimuna Aliyu: she is alleged to have stabbed her husband to death.

Something that wasn’t yet known about her, at least until Friday, is that she is a diligent student of the Holy Quran.

When she was arraigned at an Abuja High Court on Friday, Sanda was seen studiously reading the Holy book of Muslims, her six-month-old daughter strapped to her chest.

Another side, though, could be that she needed to avoid all the attention around her, and the Holy Quran was the only cover she could think of.
