Ese Oruru Gives Birth To Baby Girl


The rescued 14-year-old girl, Ese Oruru, was on
Thursday morning delivered of a baby girl.
Ese was allegedly abducted in Bayelsa State in
August 2015 and taken to Kano State where she was converted to Islam and
married out without the consent of her parents.
Since her return to Yenagoa,  she has been
living at the Police Officers’ Mess in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital.
She was said to have gone into labour on Thursday
morning and taken to the Bayelsa State Government House Clinic where she was
delivered of a baby girl. Ese’s father, Charles Oruru, obviously elated by the
news, confirmed the development. Charles said his daughter was delivered of the
baby about 10.15am on Thursday
He said the young girl, who was in Junior Secondary
School at the time she was taken away, was in a good state after going through
the early morning labour stress.
“Ese and her daughter are hale and hearty. She
gave birth to a baby girl at the Government House Clinic, Yenagoa. I just came
back from the hospital,” Charles said.
Charles said that the family members were excited
about the latest addition to the family, despite the circumstances surrounding
her pregnancy.
He added that the baby and the mother were doing
well, saying that the young girl gave birth without any complication.
‘’ Yes, my daughter gave birth around 10.15am.
The mother and the child are well. She gave birth to herself (a baby girl). We
are very happy that she gave birth safely,” he said.
Ese was allegedly abducted in Bayelsa State last
August and taken to Kano where she was converted to lslam and married off
without the consent of her parents.
 Since she returned to Yenagoa following a
public outcry and pressure mounted by the media, she has been living at the
Police Officers’ Mess in Yenagoa in custody of the police authorities in the
state.
Ese’s abduction case is currently before the
Federal High Court in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, where her alleged kidnapper,
Yunusa Dahiru, alias Yellow, is facing five counts of alleged kidnapping, unlawful
carnal knowledge and sexual exploitation of a minor.
Dahiru has been in prison custody because he was
unable to fulfil the bail conditions slammed on him by the court headed by
Justice Ajiya Nganjiwa.
Before Thursday’s incident, Ese was expected to
give evidence in secret when the hearing of the case will come up on June 2.
