The mother of Maryam Sanda, alleged to have killed her husband and son of a former PDP chairman, Bilyaminu Bello, Mrs. Maimuna Aliyu, has been arrested by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC.

Coming a week after her daughter, Maryam Sanda, was arraigned before the FCT High Court sitting in Jabi on account of allegedly killing her husband, the son of a former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Haliru Bello, her mother also visited the court on account of a N57 million fraud case.

The ICPC noted in a statement released that the mother of the alleged husband killer, Maimuna, a former Executive Director of Aso Savings and Loans Ltd, will be arraigned on charges of corruption.

Recall that Maimuna was also appointed as a member of the ICPC board by the then acting President Yemi Osinbajo in August but was later removed after she was revealed to have been indicted.
