“Abducted” Bayelsa Girl Leaves Kano Under Tight Security

Ese Oruru, the teenager who was abducted from her Bayelsa home and moved to Kano for a forced marriage to one Yunusa Yellow, has left Kano and is on her way to the police headquarters in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

The spokesperson for the Zone 1 Police Command, Rabilu Ringim, told a reporter who visited his office that a police team conveying Miss Oruru to the police headquarters in Abuja left Kano by road at 6 a.m. on Tuesday.

The team, he said, comprised an assistant commissioner of police and other top ranking officers who were travelling under tight security.

“They are on their way already, and the parents are expected in Abuja today where they would be reunited,” Mr. Ringim said. “She is being taken to Abuja based on the express instruction of the IG.”

The police spokesperson said Miss Oruru was taken thorough medical check late Monday night to enable her to commence her journey back home early on Tuesday morning.
