In the serene halls of academia, where dreams are nurtured and futures shaped, a sinister shadow cast its dark veil over two promising lives.

Saleem Ibrahim, a hopeful student of Biochemistry at the esteemed University of Maiduguri, found his heart ensnared by the radiant presence of Hauwa Abatcha Ngala, a budding scholar of the College of Nursing Sciences.

What began as an innocent affection soon descended into a harrowing saga of unrequited love. Saleem, captivated by Hauwa’s grace and charm, dared to lay his heart bare before her, seeking solace in the sanctuary of her affection, yet, fate had woven a cruel tapestry, for Hauwa, with a gentle but resolute spirit, rebuffed Saleem’s advances, refusing to yield her heart to his ardent pleas.

Undeterred by rejection, Saleem persisted, his fervor morphing into obsession as he relentlessly pursued the object of his desire, but Hauwa, steadfast in her convictions, stood firm against the tide of his affection, unwilling to compromise her autonomy for the sake of appeasing his longing heart.

In a moment of recklessness fueled by wounded pride and unchecked emotion, Saleem’s love transmuted into a weapon of destruction.

With a heart consumed by jealousy and a mind clouded by misguided passion, he unleashed a torrent of violence upon the unsuspecting Hauwa, shattering the tranquility of their academic haven and leaving a trail of devastation in his wake, as the echoes of their tragic encounter reverberate through the corridors of their alma mater, we are confronted with a sobering reality: love, when twisted by the corrosive tendrils of possessiveness and entitlement, can metamorphose into a force of unspeakable harm.

Yet, amidst the darkness that shrouds this lamentable tale, let us not forget the resilience of the human spirit, in Hauwa’s steadfast refusal to capitulate to coercion, we find a beacon of hope—a reminder that even in the face of adversity, the power to reclaim our agency and safeguard our dignity resides within us all.

May her courage serve as a clarion call to action, inspiring us to cultivate a culture of respect, empathy, and consent in all our interpersonal interactions, let us stand in solidarity with Hauwa, and with all those who refuse to be silenced in the face of oppression, as we strive to build a world where love is synonymous with freedom, not fear.
