Naja’atu Bala Muhammad Husband’s Murder
The 10th of July, 2020 marks exactly the 39th commemoration of the brutal assassination of Dr. Bala Muhammed at his house in Kano. Being a person who believes in marrying activism with scholarship, I feel mandated to write this piece in his honour.
Born blue-blooded in 1944, Dr. Bala received his rudimentary knowledge in Nigeria and studied Political Science in the United States of America.
While a student of Political Science in the United States, he was mentioned in 1978 among the ‘Who is who?’ of American Universities for his academic erudition and excellence.
Throughout his life, Dr. Bala Muhammed advocated and struggled for a true, but new social order that would give each and every Nigerian opportunities to actualize his dream in whatever way he sees fit.
That was why he spent a greater part of his youthful exuberance in the mighty ocean of activism through writing and public enlightenment.
Having hailed from the present-day Bauchi State, he developed a strong passion for Sa’ad Zungur and the ethos of his ideology especially that geared towards human emancipation from the socio-political and economic bondage of the capitalists, aristocrats, and bureaucrats.
He spoke truth to power no matter the consequences. It was for that reason he devoted his time to public awareness via the radio as the strongest and easiest way to reach the commoners and inculcate in them, the spirit of activism and progress.
On a black Friday of the 10th of July, 1981, a group of disgruntled hooligans fully backed by the NPN-led government and even the security forces besieged the house of Dr. Bala and afterward, assassinated him in cold blood and burned him alongside an unidentified corpse.
His mega and reached library, as well as his important recordings, were also burnt. The culprits were said to have been about 200 persons who went round the Kano city setting places ablaze, attacking, and looting peoples’ properties with no justification.
Though the man died, his beliefs, ideas, and ideals are still with us, the young activists. As late Professor Mazrui puts it ’A hero is judged by his or her own performance and by the positive results achieved.
A martyr is judged not by performance and results, but also by the suffering of death that he or she has sustained. The ultimate price a martyr pays is, of course, life itself…’ In this regard, Dr. Bala was and still is both a hero and a martyr.
