Friend pens emotional tribute for man killed by wife in Abuja
A close friend of the murdered son of a former PDP Chairman has penned a very emotional tribute for him on what would have been his birthday.
In the tribute, the heartbroken friend, Mustapha Dikko, said Bello would have been 36-years-old on November 23, 2017, but was cut short by his beloved wife on Sunday, November 19.
Dikko who said he had been friends with Bello since their childhood, narrated how friends tried to stop him from getting married to Sanda because they knew she was violent but he went ahead to marry her because he was so much in love with her.
Dikko had earlier revealed in a Facebook post how Sanda, the daughter of a former Executive Director of Aso Savings, Hajiya Maimuna Aliyu Sanda, argued heavily with the deceased a night before she stabbed him to death, after reportedly seeing message between him and another woman on his phone.
Dikko also said that Sanda was able to manipulate her late husband and succeeded in alienating him from his friends and family members.
Dikko titled his tribute thus:
'She separated you from us, now she has separated you from the world
Today, I would have called to say happy birthday to you Bilya, as you would have clocked 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
First, she separated you from your beloved wife, then she separated you from your family and friends.
As I sit here pondering what would have been if we had pressurized 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 confided in me, Usman, Abba or Bello about the harsh condition in your marriage.
And we would have adviced you accordingly and probably, all these wouldn’t have happened.
Oh, Bilya, I am so sorry. I am so 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. You used to say '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 hearts, bodies, and souls. Insha Allah, , your daughter, will hear the story of a great man called Bilya, her father because you were a great man. #Justiceforbilya."
