Yesterday 23rd November would have been the occasion to celebrate the 36th birthday of the late Bilyamin Muhammad Bello who was stabbed to death last Saturday by his wife Maryam Sanda after an altercation involving allegation of cheating.
As fate wanted it, the occasion has been turned to moment of sorrow, griefs, tears and emotional heartbreak for families, friends and well wishers with the unfortunate incidence as the celebrant was no more.
One of the friends of the deceased, Mustapha Dikko, has penned down touching message to remember his friend Bilyaminu who would have added another years to his age. Mustapha said, “His wife separated him from us”
Mustapha Dikko, had earlier revealed to journalist how Maryam, daughter of a former Executive Director of Aso Savings, Hajiya Maimuna Aliyu Sanda, argued heavily with the deceased late Saturday evening after reportedly seeing message between him and another woman on his phone.
Below is what he shared on Facebook;
“Today I would have called to say Happy birthday to you Bilya as you clock 36 but you are no longer with us.
I am looking up and I trust you are looking down. Because I am insisting on smiles and not a single frown, I am trying so hard but these tears of pain keep flowing down my cheeks. Sitting down here thinking about you, thinking about life without you Bilya
I am in so much pain and I am so sorry for drifting apart when you wanted to marry Maryam, I wish I pressured you more not to, I tried but I should have tried harder I was angry with you at the moment and That was selfish so we left you all alone with this murderer. First she separated you from your beloved wife then she separated you from your family and friends
As I sit here pondering about what would have been if we had pressurised you,I feel guilty down my spine. My thoughts are these
If I had put so much pressure on you and succeeded in making you understand our point of view when you wanted to marry Maryam
1. You would have left her and probably this wouldn’t have happened.
2. As Number 1 didn’t happen, if we hadn’t drifted a little too apart when you married Maryam you would have confide in me, Usman, Abba or Bello about the harsh condition in your marriage And we would have adviced you accordingly and probably all this wouldn’t have happened.
Oh Bilya I am so sorry i am soo devastated by your demise I wish I could turn the hands of time but it’s too late
Maryam has finally separated you from this world completely.
I recall what you used to say back in the days “when I get married I am going to Submit to my wife totally I don’t like woman wahala let peace reign kawai” and we will call you names, Well you did let peace reign and she took advantage of it.
You will forever be in our heart body and soul. Insha Allah Alisha your daughter will hear the story of a great man called Bilya her father because you were a great man. #Justiceforbilya”
May Almighty Allah grants the deceased eternal rest and gives the family and friends fortitude to accept the loss.
