Besides, ni gwauro ne bani da gurin da zan sauke ta”.

Karfe goma da rabi yace min jirgin su zai sauka. Karfe goma driver yazo yana jirana. Asma’u tana school Subay’a ma haka, dan haka dole na shirya ni kadai na fita ina ta bace bacen rai. Sai 10:30 muka je airport din a raina ina cewa ‘in sun sauka ma ta jira, da waye ya gayyace ta zuwa wajena?” Sai kuma nayi rashin sa’a jirginsu yayi delay dan haka sai da muka jira ma sannan suka sauka. Ina tsaye da bakar rigata da ya umarce ni in saka idona akan kofa ina ganin masu fitowa, mostly turawa ne maza da mata, sai few blacks suma kuma yawanci maza ne sai kuma wasu family da suka fito tare.

Waya a makale a kunnenta tana magana tana murmushin da yake bayyana hakoranta, naji kirjina ya buga da karfi a lokacin da zuciyata ta ayyana min wanda suke wayar dashi.

I was suppose to like nima in tafi inda take sai mu hadu a hanya amma sai nayi tsayuwata pretending as if ban gane taba har ta karaso gaba na tana murmushi tace “Diyam?” Sai kuma na kirkiro murmushi nayi mata ina studying dinta.

Muna tafiya veil din kanta ya fado kafadarta ya bayyana gyararren gashin kanta, but sai naga bata damu data gyara ba har sai da ni da kaina na gyara mata. She just thank me casually muka cigaba da tafiya.

Da muka je gida ina kallonta ina jiran inga tayi wa gidan mu wani kallo haka, ko kuma in an bata abinci inji tayi wani comment marar kyau amma sai naga sam babu abinda ya dame ta, she is the most down to earth person I have ever met. Ta zauna ta harde kafa tana ta cin tarin abincin da Inna ta jera mata tana kuma yiwa Inna hira. Sai tace “ina ‘yar Asama? Kullum sai an bamu labarin Yar Asama da Diyam, Diyam this Diyam that. Ko kaya muka saka sai yace “ku kun mayar da kanku turawa, kuyi ta saka kananan kaya, why can’t you dress like Diyam?” Ta fada tana kwaikwayon yadda Sadauki yake maganar sa.

Na kai mata kayanta dakina sannan na hada mata ruwan wanka a toilet nace tayi wanka ta huta. Bata tashi ba sai da Asma’u ta dawo daga school, ina jin Inna tana yi mata bayanin bakuwar da akayi sai kuwa naga ta tura baki tana kunkuni, Inna tayi mata warning kar ta sake tayi mata wata magana marar dadi.

Kafin ta bani amsa Asma’u ta shigo tace “nazo gaishe da matar yayana” sai naga Murjanatu ta kalle ni sai ta cigaba da nineke abin sallah. Asma’u ta sake cewa “matar yaya barka da zuwa” sai Murjanatu ta kalle ni tace “ana miki magana” nace “ke take gaisarwa fa” sai tace “matar yaya naji tace, wanne yayan?” Na gyara zamana ina so inyi confirming suspicio dina Nace “Sadauki mana” ta dan bata fuska tace “waye Sadauki?” Na sunkuyar da kai nace “Aliyu, mu anan Sadauki muke ce masa” cikin mamaki tace “yaya Aliyu?

Har dare Murjanatu tana ta tsokana ta. Ina jinsu suna waya da Sadauki tana bashi labari suna dariya sai na harare ta daga ita har wayar tata, ina jinta ta gaya masa wai ina hararar ta sai naga ta saito ni da wayar kamar zata min hoto sai na rufe fuskata ita kuma tayi ta min hotuna a haka.

Sosai Murjanatu ta sake a gidan mu, nan take muka kulla kawance mai kyau a tsakanin mu. Tana ta yimin hirar gidan su, Papa, Mama, Adama, Sa’adatu, Yani. Amma ban taba yi mata tambaya a kansu ba, na saka a raina cewa Sadauki ne ya kamata ya bani labarin su. Na fahimci kuma tana tsoron Sadauki, duk da kuwa na kanga suna yin waya suyi hira amma kamar bata taba ketare maganar sa, bata yi masa musu, kuma tana bani girma sosai saboda shi.

Ranar nan bayan Murjanatu ta kwana uku da zuwa muna waya dashi tace gobe mu shirya gabaki daya zai zo mu fita yawo “mu zagaya da Fanna taga garin Kano” nace “Fanna?” Yace “yes, Murjanatu. We call her that a gida”.

Muna gamawa yazo, muka fita ni dai ina ta rabe rabe a bayansu.

In son samu nane ma bayan hijab har nikab zaki saka ki rufe fuskarki” tunda ya fara magana nake murmushi, ina jin feeling mai dadi a raina cewa nima ina da value. Sai na tuno da ranar da Saghir yake fito min da gashina “let’s show them abinda matansu basu dashi”.

Ta kawo min hijab din na saka ya saka hannu ya gyara min fuskar hijab din sannan yace “that’s much better” sai kuma ya leka waje yace da Asma’u da Murjanatu “duk wadda bata shigo ba zamu tafi mu barta” da sauri suka bude baya suka shigo suna dariya.

“Sunan mahaifina Alhaji Umar Mustapha Abatcha” nayi saurin cewa “Alhaji Umar Mustapha dai wanda muke jin labarin sa?” Ya gyada kai yace “shifa.

A haka har ta samu ciki.

Tunda zainabu ta samu ciki shikenan kuma sai al’amurra suka cabe mata, gashi lokacin baya zama a kasar ita kuma taji duk duniya babu inda ta tsana irin gidan aurenta, babu wanda bata son gani kamar mijinta, babu kuma abinda take son rabuwa dashi irin cikin jikinta.

Ta sha wahala sosai. Ranar nan cikin dare suna bacci ta tashi tafita ko dan kwali babu ta kama doguwar katangar gidan da aka zagaye da waya da kwalabe amma a haka ta haura ta var gidan cikin jinin ciwuwwukan da taji, Alhaji Umar yana tashi yaga bata nan ya fito yayi ta nema babu wanda ya ganta sai ya dauki mota ya fita hankali a tashe.

Akayi ta nema har da cigiya a gidajen radio daga baya aka hakura.

Ita kuma ta dawo gurin yaya ladi ta zauna a kano. Har ta samu lafiya sosai aka tabbatar duk sihirin dake jikinta ya fita. Anan ta haife ni, Alhaji Umar yazo da kansa yayi min huduba da suna Aliyu “saboda ka zama jarumi ya sa na saka maka Aliyu” daga nan sai ya datse igiyar aurensa da zainabu, ya kuma roki Alhaji Bukar cewa ya nemo wannan wanda take so din yayi kokarin hada su aure, bayan an samo Baffa kuma Alhaji Umar da kansa ya bashi amana ta. “Dan Allah ka rike shi tamkar kai ka haife shi. Ɗa na kowa ne ai, wata kila ma kai zaiyiwa rana bani ba. Ni dai kawai ina son shi da mahaifiyarsa su kasance safe”. Through all those years da nake gurin Baffa ashe duk Alhaji Umar yana biye da rayuwata, kuma yace ko da sau daya Baffa bai taba neman wani taimako daga gare shi ba.

To bayan rasuwar Umma da Baffa, bayan na koma gidan Alhaji Bukar, sai yake gaya min cewa ya gaya wa mahaifina zancen rasuwar, amma baya kasar a lokacin yasan da zaizo gaisuwa ma amma yace a gayamin in saka rana da kaina sanda na ke ganin am ready in gaya masa zaizo Nigeria sai mu hadu a Maiduguri. I fixed the date, sai muka tafi. But cikin rashin sa’a sai ya zamanto shi din wani abu yarike shi a can kasar da yake zaune, Canada, dan haka bai samu tahowa da wuri ba. Ban sami kowa a Maiduguri ba sai step grandmother dina a uncles dina. A lokacin ne kuma kika kirani da maganar za’a hada aurenki da Saghir. Nan take naso in yi musu dan karamin hauka a gidan na dage akan lallai sai an taho anzo Kano an nema min auren ki. Duk kallona suke kamar tababbe, irin suna ganin ban isa aure ba ai. Aka kira Papa aka gaya masa yace a rabu dani, wanne irin aure kuma? Sai na karbi wayar na gaya masa ko dai ya ajiye koma me takeyi yazo ya nema min aurenki ko kuma in kama gabana kuma babu wanda zai kuma jin labari na. Sai na gaya masa ko wa cece ke da dangantakar mu. Wannan ne ya ja hankalinsa. Sai ya bani hakuri akan cewa ba zai iya zuwa ba sai dai mu taho tare da Alhaji Babagana, daya daga cikin uncles dina. Muka taho din kuwa and you know what happened a gidan Alhaji Babba. Sanda muka fita I was beyond broken. Sai nace bazan koma Maiduguri ba, a gidan Alhaji Bukar zan zauna. Na zauna gidan Alhaji Bukar trying to find a solution amma na rasa ko daya, babu irin tunanin da banyi ba ciki kuwa har da in shirya mana visa tare zuwa Canada sai in dauke ki mu tafi can mu cigaba da rayuwar mu. But sai na tuno da kalaman Baffa da yake cewa ba yaso ya bani aurenki in dai babu amincewar Inna a ciki, nasan kuma yadda Inna bata sona in na dauke ki zata hada daga ni har ke ne ta tsine mana kuma ba zamu taba ganin dai dai ba a rayuwa. And I didn’t want to put you through that. Sai na fara bincike ta karkashin kasa, Alhaji Babagana ya bani kudi sosai kafin ya koma Maiduguri dan haka bani da matsalar kudi, I followed Alhaji Babba, I watched him a lokacin da ya siyar da garejin Baffa, I also watched him lokacin da ya siyar da filina, I watched him lokacin daya siya wa dansa gida na bishi har gidan na gani. But bayan ya tafi sai na tsaya ina studying gidan, bai yi min ba kwata kwata. Unguwar was deserted dan haka babu security kenan, ko menene zai samu mutum a gidan babu wanda zai sani. Na haura na shiga har cikin gidan sai naga locks din kofofin ba masu kyau bane sosai sai naje na siyo wasu na dawo na cire wadancan na saka sababbin da kaina. But still ban gamsu ba dan nasan wannan mijin naki ba lallai yake zama a gida bake kadai zai ke bari so I hired a gate man for you. Malam Iliyasu” na kalle shi da sauri nace “Malam Iliyasu dai maigadin gidan Saghir?” Yace “yes. Tsohon soja ne yana gadi anan kusa da gidan Alhaji Bukar to sai wanda yake yi wa gadin ya rasu. So I took him zuwa unguwar na nuna masa gidan, mukayi sa’a Saghir din yazo sai na nuna masa shi nace yaje ya nuna masa cewa gurin zama yake nema, yana son zaiyi masa gadi free of charge abinda yake so kawai a bashi dakin mai gadi ya zauna anan. And he took the bait. Nace yace masa free ne dan na fahimci babu yaren da Saghir yake ganewa sosai irin na kudi. So, Malam iliyasu yayi muku gadi, ni nake biyansa duk wata, in return shi kuma yana supplying dina with information musamman abinda ya shafi lafiyar ki”

Ban bar kano ba sai da nayi attending daurin aurenku da Saghir. Daga nan airport na wuce straight na tafi Maiduguri ina zuwa kuma na tarar takarduna sun gama haduwa zuwa Canada dan haka kwana na daya a Maiduguri na tafi Ottawa, capital din Canada inda anan ne mahaifina yake zaune da iyalinsa. 

I had been holding on, ina ta gayawa kaina cewa ba gaskiya bane ba, cewa ban rasa ki da gaske ba, but sai a jirgin nayi loosing din sauran hope dina. Gani nake yi na rabu dake kenan har abada and I couldn’t picture my life without you, gani nake babu wani sauran meaning a rayuwata. Daga airport maimakon gida sai asibiti aka wuce dani, ji nake kamar tsaga kirjina akeyi da wuka ana yankar zuciyata sala sala. Mahaifin da naci burin gani sai a asibiti na ganshi and the first thing da ya fada min shine “are you this weak? Do you really want to die saboda mace?” Nace “she is not just any woman. She is mine and they took her from me” yace “to me zakayi akai? Zaka kwanta ka mutu ne while tana can tana sabuwar rayuwa da wani ko kuma zaka tashi ka rayu and show them that abinda sukayi is wrong?” And I decided, maybe gwara in rayu din, maybe one day I will be able to see you again, and get you justice from whoever wrong you. 

But it was easier said than done. A watannin farko na aurenki I spent more time in hospital than at home. In ina gidan ma kuma ina daki a rufe. Bana kula kowa bana yi wa kowa magana. All I kept thinking about was you, you and you. Kullum tunani na a wanne hali kike ciki? Kinyi missing dina ko kuma kinyi accepting auren ki kin cigaba da rayuwarki da mijinki. Na kira Malam Iliyasu sai yake gaya min cewa Saghir yayi tafiya sai ke kadai a gidan tare da wata mata. And the agonizing months suka wuce, the most terrible times of my life. Ranar nan ina gida da rana kawai sai ga wayar Malam Iliyasu, nayi mamaki dan nasan cewa dare ne ku a wajenku na dauka sai naji cikin tashin hankali ya na gaya min wai baki da lafiya, shi yana ganin ma kamar kin mutu dan yaga maigidan ya dauko ki cikin jini ya saka ki a mota ya fita dake. Papa yana office dan haka message kawai na tura masa na dauki kudi da passport na tafi airport. Ban samu jirgi zuwa kano ba sai Abuja. Sai dana shiga Abuja sannan na samu wani zuwa kano ina shiga kano na kira Malam Iliyasu yace min shi bashi da wani labari tunda kuka fita shiru, sai na wuce gidan Alhaji Babba, na shiga har compound din gidan saboda yadda nake jin raina I was beyond caring akan me zai faru in aka ganni. Amma sai na tarar da gidan a hargitse, hankali na ya tashi and I asked wani mai kula da flowers sai yace min ai gobara ce Alhaji yayi duk shagunan sana’arsa sun kone kurmus babu abinda ya tsira dashi. Sai na tambayeshi game da matar Saghir, sai yace haihuwa ce kika yi amma yaran sun mutu, ke kuma an kaiki asibiti amma baisan wanne asibitin ba. Muna cikin magana Inna ta shigo gidan, ta wuce mu ba tare da ta ganni ba kuma na lura hankalinta a tashe yake, ta shiga cikin gidan ta sake fitowa sai na tura wanda muke tare nace yaje ya tambaye ta ya mai jiki? Anan naji sunan asibitin da kike, ana bukatar jini kuma ita ta rasa kowa duk gidan suna gurin Alhaji da yake asibiti shima. Sai na fice ba tare data ganni ba, na je asibitin da kike na nemo dakin da kike na shiga har ciki na ganki. You were sleeping, kamar allurar bacci aka yi miki. Kin kumbura sosai kinyi fari tas. I stayed a dakin for a while ina ganin kamar in na fita bazan dawo in tarar dake da rai ba but i knew dole inyi wani abu sai na tafi nace Inna ce ta turo ni in biya kudi kuma a dauki jini na, akwai wadda a gurin ta tambayeni ko nine mijinki and it pained me to say no. Aka gwada jini na and luckily sai yayi matching da naki” 

Na katse shi “wait, wai kai ka bani jini ranar nan a asibiti?” Yayi murmushi “naki fadar kaina ne saboda nasan yadda Inna bata sona zata iya cewa ba za’a karba ba dan kar in shafa miki maita or something like that”

Kullum ina zuwa in duba ki. Na tabbatar kina samun sauki sosai, ranar nan saura kadan Mama ta ganni na buya duk I doubt ko ta ganni ma zata gane ni saboda ni kaina nasan I looked terrible. Ranar nan nazo sai akace min a ranar za’a sallame ki. Sai na tsaya and I saw you sanda kuka fito, ke da Inna da Saghir da wadansu mata. Kuka shiga motar Saghir ke da Inna kuka tafi and I kept following you a kafa sai danja ta tsayar daku har na karaso inda kuke and I did what I shouldn’t have done, nayi miki magana”

Da sauri nace “I knew it. Nasan kai na gani amma inna tace wai aljanu ne suka bude min ido”. Yayi murmushi. Ban kyauta ba na sani bai kamata inyi wa matar wani magana ba but I did it. 

A ranar na koma Abuja daga nan kuma na koma Canada. A cikin jirgin nayi making decision cewa it is time to move on, tunda ke gashi har kin haihu, seven months after the wedding har kin haihu. Dan haka ina zuwa gida na samu Papa nace “am ready to move on yanzu” yace “good. Sai ka tafi makaranta kayi mechanical engineering dinka” sai nace “ina son karatu amma nafi son business, in yaso sai in hada da karatun da business din duka” yace zai saka ni a harkar Mai, but sai nace masa bana son aiki under him, I want something of my own, yadda zan making name for myself ba wai in jingina dashi ba. Na dauka zaiji babu dadi but sai naga yayi murna, yace wannan ya nuna masa how strong I am. Sai yayi signing check ya bani yace in cike kudin da nake ganin zasu ishe ni in kafa kaina. Na rubuta na mika masa sai ya yaga check din yace “wannan kudin da zan bawa wani ne in tazo neman taimako gurina. Ba kudin da zan bawa tilon dana ya kafa business ba. Sai ya sake signing wani ya miko min yace “multiply that by hundred, ka rubuta kaje ka karba. Allah yasa albarka a ciki”.

That was the beginning of Abatcha Motors. I chose Kano saboda in samu damar keeping eyes on you. Cikin few months aka gama komai na fara hiring ma’aikata. A lokacin ne Malam iliyasu yake gaya min cewa kuna cikin matsalar kudi dan yaga aba ta fitar da kayan gidan ana siyarwa. So, I talked to someone who talked to someone har aka gayawa Alhaji Babba cewa ga sabon company nan ana daukan ma’aikata and luckily shi kuma Saghir ya dauko takardunsa ya fito neman aiki a lokacin sai aka turo min shi. A gurin interview din dana yi masa ne na tabbatar cewa bai sanni ba. I gave him a job. Amma ba job bane ba dan baya ma cikin list of staff dina. Salary dinsa daban nake bashi and his salary was just like me giving you money. Ina bashi kudin dana san ya isa ya kula dake. 

Ina gab da komawa Canada ne sai yazo office dina yana ta complain wai matarsa ce zata haihu kuma doctors sunce ba zata iya haihuwa ba sai dai ayi mata aiki, gashi sunyo masa bill na kudi da yawa. I was scared kar yazo yaki biyan kudin ki zo ki samu matsala so I paid the money.

Daga nan na koma school. Carleton University of Canada. Anan nayi karatu tsahon shekaru biyar na fita da matsayin mechanical engineer. A wannan shekarun ne muka yi bonding sosai da yan uwana.

I couldn’t imagine me zai faru da Asma’u idan da Allah bai sa Malam Iliyasu ya kirawo ni ba. That was when I decided to sue Alhaji Babba for garejin Baffa da filina.
