Senate President Lawan Blows Hot After Being Accused Of Secretly Taking N3bn Bribe

Published

on

Sahara Reporters have been given seven days to apologize after accusing the Senate President Ahmed Lawan of taking N3bn bribe. 

Lawan, along with Sen. Mohammed Musa said the allegation is libellous, false and misleading. Counsel to the Senate President, Ahmed Raji, (SAN), wrote a letter to the media firm on behalf of his client asking it to retract the report within seven days and tender an unreserved apology. 

Mr Raji said that the publication was in respect of alleged false and misleading information on the reappointment of Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, as Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC. The senior lawyer said that the offensive report was published by Sahara Reporters on Nov. 18 with the headline;

 “How INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, allegedly paid N3 billion to secure reappointment.” He said that Sahara Reporters alleged that a group led by Lawan collected N2 billion from the INEC Chairman and another N1 billion through another group. 

The payment of the money was allegedly aided by Sen. Musa. The letter reads in part: ”Our clients deny in its entirety the contents of the above publication and innuendoes therein.“Our clients further state that every allegation against them in the said publication is utterly false and defamatory to their persons and character,” Mr Raji Said.

 He said that in view of the above declarations, his clients have demanded that Sahara Reporters retract the publication and tender an apology within seven days of receiving the letter. He further said the media outfit was also to enter into negotiation for damages.

Maryam Sanda heads to Supreme Court as Appeal Court upholds her death sentence

Published

on

The Court of Appeal in Abuja has upheld the death sentence of Maryam Sanda.

Sanda had on November 19, 2017 stabbed her husband, Bilyaminu who was a son of former Peoples Democratic Party National Chairman, Dr Haliru Bello, to death following an allegation of infidelity against him after seeing a text message on his phone.

Maryam was arrested and arraigned in court by the police.

In January 2020, she was found guilty of murder by the Federal High Court Abuja and was sentenced to death by hanging.

Dissatisfied with the ruling, Maryam in February 2020, filed an appeal against the death sentence. She asked the Court of Appeal in Abuja to set aside the verdict and acquit her, on grounds that Justice Yusuf Halilu who handed her the death sentence was “tainted by bias and prejudices.”

She also alleged she wasn’t given a fair hearing and was convicted on circumstantial evidence by the trial judge who reportedly failed to rule on her preliminary objection, challenging the charge preferred against her.

A three-man panel of the court, in a judgment delivered on Friday, December 4, dismissed Ms Sanda’s appeal for lacking in merit.

Her counsel, Joe Gadzama SAN, however, said they are heading to the Supreme court, while Counsel to Police, James Idachaba, praised the judgment and said they are also ready to meet Maryam and her legal team at the apex court.
