HURRIYA Book 1 Complete Document Written By Khadeeja Candy


The main residence is comprised of five distinct sections. The first, second, third, and fourth sections face the imposing main gate, while the fifth section is situated to the right of the fourth. Each section features a small gate that allows observation of those entering or leaving. Additionally, every segment boasts around three parking spaces and a small area that can serve various purposes. Flowerpots adorn each entrance, while chairs are strategically placed for visitors to rest and relax.

The central hall of the house is vast enough to accommodate four or five smaller houses. Tall trees are planted in every corner of the compound, while a circular arrangement of flowers graces the center. Glancing at the stern-looking house guards gives an idea of their decent income. Not to mention, the sizable cars neatly lined up in the compound, exclusively reserved for Alfarma’s use. Alhaji Haruna Mai Yadi’s residence, often referred to as “End of Discussion” by the locals, is renowned not only in the Millions Quarters area but also across Gusau town. People frequently discuss this unique house, which is quite a rarity in the town. Alhaji Haruna’s deliberate display of his wealth through this distinctive property is nothing short of conspicuous.

Among the four sections occupied, three are inhabited by families, while the remaining section belongs solely to Alhaji Haruna Mai Yadi. His wife, Hajiya Nafisa, known as Momy, resides in one of the sections. Another section houses the renowned matriarch, Hajiya Iyami, fondly called Amma, known for her pivotal role in the Hausa community. The fourth section, which Alhaji Haruna never occupied, was designed for his four envisioned heirs.

Each section comprises separate quarters for males and females, with two lounges – a small one and a larger one. Luxurious furnishings grace the bedrooms of each wife, with the only difference being the color scheme. Hajiya Kaltume’s room is adorned in red, from the furniture to the curtains, accented with exquisite golden stripes. Following her are Umm Kultoon, nicknamed Maama, Umm Salma, Umm Khairi, and the youngest daughter, Umm Ruman, all trailing after their elder brother, Yassar, the only male among the siblings.

Momy, on the other hand, has styled her section with an ash-colored theme, except for the white curtains that stand out in her living room.

In contrast, Amma’s section is characterized by a pristine white, creating a visually appealing and serene atmosphere. Despite having small children, including Hurriya and her husband, Hamad, and the one she’s currently carrying, Amma remains the youngest among the wives. One look at Alhaji Haruna reveals that she might soon give birth or is currently expecting.

Aside from these families, Alhaji Haruna Mai Yadi has a daughter, Maryam, from his first wife. Their journey together, enduring life’s highs and lows, has been a testament to their enduring bond. Later, he married Hajiya Kaltume, who now shares his life, following the passing of his first wife, Sapna, who currently resides in her marital home. Her affairs, along with her husband’s, are still under Alhaji Haruna’s watchful eye. Some say that just as the goat was sold and returned to nourish the family, she was married off to a poor man, and when her father was impoverished, prosperity found its way back to them. Consequently, his household is now teeming with the children of his brothers and his wife’s siblings.

From his late wife, Maryam, to Hajiya Kaltume, the women he’s been known to marry were said to have faced poverty initially. He married them, not focusing on physical beauty but rather on their good conduct. Nevertheless, his first and second wives don’t share an amicable relationship and frequently engage in heated disputes, with constant tension between them until the day Maryam passed away. It was after her demise that Haruna Mai Yadi’s fortunes began to rise, and the gates of wealth opened for him from east to west. During this time, he wed Hajiya Nafisa, the daughter of his benefactor, as he was a man who preferred not to be tied to a single woman. Although she possessed her own beauty and displayed traits of honor and generosity, the household atmosphere changed drastically upon her arrival.
