Nigeria: The Federal High Court in Yenagoa, on Monday adjourned Ese Oruru’s alleged abduction till Dec. 8, 2016. Yunusa Dahiru, the accused was arraigned on March 8, for criminal abduction, illicit sex, sexual exploitation and unlawful carnal knowledge of a minor.
His Counsel, Mr Kayode Olaosebikan, told newsmen that no reason was giving why the court did not sit.
Ese’s evidence was obtained under closed door.
The father of Ese Oruru, Mr Charles Oruru, expressed sadness over his daughter’s stay at the police officers mess with the new born baby.
Oruru said that Ese is supposed to be in school.
He thanked Bayelsa government for their support since the inception
of the case.
“My daughter has been crying to go back to school as her classmates are now ahead of her,
“She has lost a whole year to this saga and she is still in Police protective custody while the accused is enjoying freedom on bail
“I am begging the Delta government, Nigeria and the world at large to come to our aid.
“These days without education one is going nowhere, so she is not
doing anything in their custody, while the accused moves freely and she is suffering there.”
“I have called on the Delta government to assist because I have five children amongst whom Ese is the second to the last.”
‘So, my state government should come to my family’s aid,” he appealed.
Else’s mother, Rose, 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.
“People from Bayelsa have been assisting us and even the police officers, we want to leave there to our house because the Mess is not a good place to stay and bring up a new born baby.
“We are just confined to a room that we are not even allowed to go out, we stay with our trash bin which smells us and the new born baby.
“So, the world should note that we are been marginalised for no reason.
“The boy, Yunusa, is still owing me some money for the food he ate before taking my daughter to Kano to impregnate her for me,” she said.
