months after her abduction from Bayelsa to Kano State by Yunusa, aka
Yellow, a regular customer at her mother’s food stall, in August last
Ese Rita Oruru, the Bayelsa teenager, who was allegedly abducted in
August 2015 and taken to Kano by a certain Yunusa Yellow, was rescued on
Monday night through the combined efforts of the Kano state police,
Kano Emirate Council and Punch Newspapers.
The paper’s report on the issue led to a national coverage- which
compelled the authorities to take action and secure her release.
On Tuesday, Ese as well as her alleged lover- Yunusa Yellow- were
transported to Abuja by a Special Police team from Zone 1 headquarters,
In Abuja, Ese would on Wednesday(today), be handed over to her
mother, Mrs. Oruru, who travelled by road from Bayelsa and couldn’t make
it on time for a Tuesday reunion.
The case has sprung up series of controversies which culminated in
two schools of thought- that she was indeed abducted and has now been
brainwashed to the point where she doesn’t want to go back home… Or, she
eloped, albeit unlawfully, with Yunusa Yellow to Kano.
In lieu of this, her father Charles Oruru, revealed to Vanguard newspapers, that he intends to seek spiritual assistance on behalf of Ese.
Charles, who believes that his daughter has been brainwashed, said
he’d take her to popular cleric, Pastor T.B. Joshua, founder of The
Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN).
