The emir of Kano, Malam Sanusi Lamido II has ordered the Sharia Commission in the state to liaise with office of the Deputy Inspector General of police, zone 1 to immediately commence process of returning the a 14-year old teenager, Ese Oruru allegedly abducted in Bayelsa state.
Ese was allegedly kidnapped by one Yunusa in Opolo, Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, in August, 2015.
He reportedly renamed her Aishat on arriving Kano State.
Senator Ben Murray-Bruce, former minister of finance Obi Ezekwesili as well as the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Hajia Aishat Al-Hassan have shown interest in Ese’s case, demanding her immediate release.
As I have mentioned earlier, Ese Oruru’s separation from her parents and purported marriage in Kano is against the Child Rights Act #FreeEse
