Hajia Aliyu is charged with fraud by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related Offences Commission (ICPC).

She was alleged of  selling three plots of land: 2432; 2433; and 2434 in Cadastral Zone B08, Jahi District, Abuja, properties of Aso Savings and Loans Ltd on behalf of the bank at the cost of N57 million and failed to remit same to the bank.

ICPC also accused her of making false statement to officials of the commission, and was to arraign her before Justice M.A Nasir on November 28 but for the judge, who was unavoidably absent.    

The judge on that day was said to be attending a workshop for judges selected to handle corruption cases and Hajia Aliyu’s arraignment was rescheduled for December 5.

But on the scheduled date,  the case suffered similar fate as the accused was nowhere near the court premise leading to another adjournment of the case to December 14.

The accused is the mother of alleged killer wife, Maryam Sanda, who is accused of killing her husband Bilyaminu Bello at the couple’s Maitama residence and is standing trial for murder.

Earlier reports on the alleged murder said the deceased was son of former chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bello Halliru Muhammadu. However, emerging fact revealed that he was the PDP’s chieftain’s nephew.
