Ese Oruru's abductor Dahiru gets 26 years imprisonment

Thu May 21st, 2020 - Bayelsa

The Federal High Court in Yenagoa, Bayelsa state capital, has sentenced Yinusa Dahiru to 26 years in prison after he was found guilty of child trafficking and other charges.

Dahiru took Ese Oruru from her home in Bayelsa on August 12, 2015, to Kano State where he ‘forcefully’ married her and changed her name to Aisha after converting to Islam. Oruru was 13 years old then.

Her parents and human rights activists thereafter petitioned the police to investigate the case of Ese’s human right being violated by an individual.
