Mr Sani said: “Garba believes that the birth of his son, Bala has brought him misfortune. This superstitious belief makes him to send his son away from his house.

“The fervent pleas by Bala’s mother did not pacify the father to change his decision.

“The poor boy eventually leaves home to wander in the forest until he meets one Arabic scholar, Malam Umar, and becomes his servant.

“Bala’s father seems to have an alternative in Auwalu who is a half-brother to Bala, but everything ends in disappointment.

“On the other hand, by dint of hard work, diligence, perseverance and loyal service to his master, Bala enjoys the positive side of destiny.
