Bilyamin was reportedly stabbed to death by Maryam last Saturday.
Speaking in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory police spokesman, Anjuguri Manzah, said on Wednesday that the command had secured a remand order against Maryam for two weeks from the FCT High Court pending the completion of investigation.
He added that this was done because the suspect had a six-month-old baby which made it difficult to remand her in prison custody.
Manzah said the case had been assigned to FCT High Court No. 32 Jabi, Abuja for trial by the Chief Judge of FCT, adding that the suspect was charged with culpable homicide punishable under section 224 of the Penal Code.
He said, “It should also be noted that this present charge is as a result of preliminary findings; at the end of investigations, additional findings will determine whether the current charge will be amended or whether other persons will be charged along with the suspect.
“To assist the police with their ongoing investigations, some persons have been invited for questioning on the matter.”
Also, the security guards who were picked up by the police for interrogation in respect of Bilyamin’s death had been released after narrating to investigators what they knew about the events leading to the death of the businessman.
They were said to have agreed to serve as prosecution witnesses against Maryam after volunteering information on the alleged murder to police detectives.
“The security guards were released after telling the police what they knew about the incident. They subsequently agreed to serve as prosecution witnesses, meaning that they would appear in court to give evidence on the matter,” a source explained.
