Parents of Ese Oruru, the 14-year-old minor allegedly abducted in Bayelsa and forced into marriage in Kano, on Monday lamented her absence from school. They said they were no longer comfortable with her continuous stay in police protective custody, which they described as uncomfortable for a nursing mother and her baby.
Today, the Federal High Court sitting in Yenagoa adjourned Ese’s case to December 8, but the parents described as ironic, denying their daughter her freedom through protective custody while the accused person, Yunusa, roamed the streets on bail.
They insisted that their daughter had been denied freedom under the guise of protection. They complained that Ese and her baby were not properly catered for in their protective custody since she gave birth to a baby girl on May 25, 2016.
Her father, Charles Oruru, said he was sad that her daughter and the new baby were confined in the officers’ mess. He lamented that Ese was supposed to be in school adding that her daughter had lost a school year following the saga.
Also, speaking, her mother, Rose, said her daughter lacked the proper care expected of a nursing mother. She said the expected psychological attention and nutritional care available in homely environment were missing at the police mess.
