Ese Oruru, the 14 year-old girl from Bayelsa State, whose abduction drew national and international attention has given birth to a baby girl. Ese delivered a baby girl at a State Government hospital in Bayelsa State capital. Her father, Charles Oruru confirmed the news and shared that the mother and the baby are doing well. Mr. Oruru also shared that Ese was in the company of her mother during the delivery.
Ese was allegedly abducted by Yunusa Dahiru from her home State and taken to Kano State last year, where she converted to Islam and was married off without her parent’s consent. Ese was taken under police custody amidst national outcry for the abduction and subsequent marriage of the minor across state lines.
