Ese Rita Oruru, who was abducted by Yunusa Dahiru in August, 2015, has been discovered to be about 5 months pregnant. It was gathered that the white Hijab dress she wore on her arrival from Kano yesterday, was used to cover the pregnancy.
Vanguard was told that it was the condition in which Police authorities
discovered about Ese that informed the IGP, Solomon Arase’s directive
that she should be handed over to the Gender and Child Protection Unit
and later, a team from the Medical Department of the Force to carry out a
comprehensive medical examination of the girl-child at the Police
Medical Facility in Area 1, Garki.
Upon certifying her medical status and emotional state, Vanguard
gathered that the Inspector General of Police feeling uncomfortable with
the transport arrangement of the mother that they return by road,
cancelled the arrangement and directed that both Ese and her mother be
flown to Yenegoa by air. Meanwhile, the IGP has directed the Bayelsa
State Police Command to take over investigation in the child violence
offense saga because according to sources, the offense was committed in
Bayelsa which is the place of residence of the abductor, Yunusa Dahiru.
Consequently, Vanguard was told the Yunusa will be moved to Yenegoa to
face interrogation and prosecution for kidnapping and child abuse as
well as violence against a girl-child.
