Alleged Husband Killer: Kaduna curfew stops witness from testifying against Maryam Sanda

The trail of Maryam Sanda was on Wednesday stalled due to the absence of a prosecution witness. When the matter was called, Mr James Idachaba announced appearance for the prosecution while the first defendant, Maryam was represented by Mr O. Jolaawo. Idachaba prayed the court to grant a short adjournment on grounds that the witnesses could not make it to court. He explained that the witness who resides in Kaduna could not come into Abuja due to the imposition of a 24-hour curfew on the city by the Kaduna State Government. He said he was also informed that the second witness was unavailable because he travelled to Port-Harcourt. Jolaawo, who is the new counsel to Maryam since J.B Daudu (SAN) withdrew from the trial, conceded to the request for an adjournment. Justice Halilu who is the presiding judge adjourned the matter to November 15, 2018. However, the judge expressed displeasure over the continuous delay in the trial
