Abducted teenager released …Police behind prolonged detention

ABUJA – Kidnappers of hapless minor, Ese Oruru, Ese Oruru caved in to sustained pressure to release the 14-year old indigene of Bayelsa State.
This is even as Emir Sanusi and Kano Emirate Council distanced themselves from the criminal act, and blamed the Nigeria Police for prolonged detention of the poor school girl.
Ese has been in the kidnappers den for upwards of seven months until the Inspector General of Police Sunday Arase directed the Commissioner of Police, Kano State, Mohammed Katsine to liase with the State’s Emirate Council and relevant persons, to effect her release.
Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), ACP Olabisi Kolawole disclosed that the Inspector General of Police has directed that Ese Oruru be given protection and be flown to Abuja today to be re-united with her family.
Already, it was gathered that the IGP has made arrangements to move the family to Abuja for the re-unification with their daughter.
Meanwhile, Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sunusi II has blamed the Nigerian police and other para – military forces over there failure to reconcile Ese Rita Oruru with her family barely 6 months it was sealed.
Narrating his role on the controversial abduction of the Bayelsa born teenager, the Sanusi explained, “I ordered Ese’s repatriation since September 2015 through the Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of Zone 1, but to my surprise the issue is still hanging in between the sharia commission, Hisbah and the police”.
“Police are those behind this delay. I have done my best for her and even directed for action, it’s unfortunate that the police are delaying this matter; I received phone call from friends outside the shore of this country over Ese today (yesterday, 29/02/16), but what I knew was that the matter is something which I had settled over the last six months”, he continued.
Moreso, the emir recalled how he directed that the District head of Kura, Sharia Commission and Hisbah to investigate the allegation Ese raised over threat by her estranged parents to her life, adding that the report confirmed the allegation and had since requested police intervention to provide cover.
The emir who declared null and void the purported marriage of Ese Oruru off to her suspected lover declared “Ese is under age and she can’t be married-off as underage . Every Muslim also knew that marriage can’t be without a guidance. She must be taking back to her parent and can only marry when she reached the age of 18 years”.
He added that “It is unislamic for someone to marry a lady without a guidance. This abduction of Ese by my subject to Kano is worrisome because it will cause disunity among our people. I feel it is something we should urgently call to order.”
The emir further directed the shariah commission to liaise with the Assistant Inspector General of police and repatriate the girl back to her family.
