Ese Oruru should be in School, not in Police Custody – Father

The father of abducted and impregnated Ese Oruru, Mr. Charles Or­uru, has kicked against the con­tinued stay of his daughter with her baby in the Police Officers’ Mess in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital.
Besides expressing sad­ness at the development, he said that Ese ought to have re­turned to school, which her ab­duction and subsequent forced marriage to Yunusa Dahiru in Kano, made her to stop.
Fourteen-year-old Ese was abducted in Bayelsa in August 2015 and taken to Kano where her abductor Yunusa Dahiru, forced her into marriage and impregnated her.
Ese gave birth to a baby girl on May 25, 2016 while in Po­lice care at the Police Officers Mess in Yenagoa and has since remained there.
Her father, on Monday flayed the police for putting his daughter and her baby in protective custody since then instead of allowing her to con­tinue with her education.
He spoke after the Feder­al High Court, Yenagoa ad­journed Ese Oruru’s abduc­tion case till December 8, 2016.
Mr. Oruru said it was an irony of sorts that while the ac­cused is enjoying his freedom on bail, Ese is being detained under the guise of protection.
He lamented that the con­ditions under which Ese and her baby were kept were not conducive for the welfare of the mother and her baby.
Dahiru was arraigned on March 8, 2016 before the Fed­eral High Court, Yenagoa on charges of criminal abduction, illicit sex, sexual exploitation and unlawful carnal knowl­edge of a minor.
The mother of Ese, Mrs. Rose Oruru, said her daughter was not properly taken care of as one nursing a baby with re­gards to nutrition and psycho­logical care in a homely envi­ronment.
“The people of Bayelsa have been assisting us and even the police officers. We want to leave there to our house be­cause the place (Police Offic­ers’ Mess) is not a good place to stay and bring up a new born baby.
“We are just abandoned in a room that we are not even al­lowed to go out. We stay with our trash bin which smells. We and the new baby are com­pelled to breathe the offensive smell,” she lamented.
Counsel to the accused, Mr. Kayode Olaosebikan, who was in court with Yunusa, said the case was adjourned till Decem­ber 8 for further hearing of the matter.
