Maryam Sanda was sentenced to death on Monday, January 27, after she was found guilty of killing her husband.
In his tweet, Ahmad said it would be sad for Maryam Sanda's daughter to know while growing up that her mother killed her father and that the court in return sentenced her to death.
He said it might not be easy for the innocent girl to cope with such traumatic incidences, adding that it is only Allah could give her strength to bear the burden and agony of losing both parents in such circumstances.
Ahmad further stated that thoughts and prayers have been with Bilyaminu and Maryam’s families since the incident happened.
He prayed Almighty Allah to be with both families and Sanda's daughter.
"I feel so sorry and sad for Maryam Sanda’s daughter, growing up to understand such devastating incidences will not going to be easy. May Allah give her the strength and be with her. Thoughts and prayers have been with Bilyaminu and Maryam’s families. May Allah comfort them," he said.
