The abducted 14-year-old girl, Ese Oruru who was taken away from her home in Bayelsa to far away Kano is pregnant.
Ese was abducted and forcefully converted to Islam by 25-year-old Yanusa Yellow from Kura in Kano State in 2015.
After concerted efforts by the Inspector General of Police and the Emir of Kano, prompted by social media campaign #FreeEse by Sen. Ben Murray-Bruce, Ese was finally freed and reunited with her family once again.
After medical examinations were conducted on the teenager by the Nigerian police in Abuja, she was found to be 5 months pregnant.
This was conformed by her father Mr. Charles Oruru,  who said that
the Bayelsa Governor, Hon. Seriake Dickson has been briefed on the issues surrounding the abduction of Ese Oruru.
While reacting to the pregnancy, Yunusa’s father said that his son never cohabited with Ese Oruru, saying it was highly offensive to his religion.
Meanwhile. Second Republic politician and lawyer, Chief Guy Ikokwu said: ‘’The law should take its course as the molestation and abuse of children and infants is rampant in our society. It should not take the intervention of a monarch, the IGP or the governor or president for police officers trained in crime prevention to do their normal work. Ese Oruru’s father has given glory to God  as what happened was not Christian or Islamic like the Chibok episode.
Asked his opinion on Ese’s pregnancy and what the parents should do, he said: ‘’The pregnancy is a family matter. It is for the family to decide. The abduction is a criminal matter but the pregnancy is a family issue. Under the law, we cannot advice the girl to go and commit an abortion. The girl may die in the process. It is for the family to decide.’’
