Remember Ese Oruru, the 14-year-old girl who was abducted and taken to Kano, and was impregnated by one Yinusa Dahiru aka Yellow in 2015.

Eseoghene Rita Oruru was abducted on August 12, 2015, in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital and taken to Kano, where she was impregnated, converted to Islam and to wife by her abductor, Yunusa Dahiru, (aka Yellow), without the consent of the parents.

This was in clear violation of civil law which attracted deeper condemnation and compelled the Federal Government of Nigeria, which directed the then Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, to locate and return the girl to her family in Bayelsa State.
The IGP was further directed to prosecute Yinusa Dahiru before a competent court in Yenagoa under the relevant extant laws.
