The federal government has denied reports that President Muhammadu Buhari has granted presidential pardon to the woman who stabbed her husband to death, Maryam Sanda.
News had gone out that “Maryam Sanda, the woman who was condemned to death by hanging for stabbing her husband, Bilyaminu, to death will not be hanged after all.
“She is one of the beneficiaries of the presidential pardon of 9th April,” the report added.
Personal Assistant on New Media to President Muhammadu Buhari, Bashir Ahmad, citing Correctional Service sources, said the report is fallacious.
Taking to his Twitter handle, he tweeted:
The news making the rounds that Maryam Sanda, a murder convict, was granted presidential pardon is FAKE, very unrealistic and an attempt to rubbish the good intention of President Buhari towards decongesting the custodial centres, National Correctional Service says in a statement.
