Abductor of Ese Oruru, Yunusa sentenced to 26 years in prison

A Federal High Court in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, has sentenced Yunusa Dahiru, to 26 years in prison for kidnapping Ese Oruru, a teenager.

The Nigerian police had in March 2016, arraigned Dahiru on a five-count charge bordering on abduction, kidnapping, unlawful carnal knowledge and sexual exploitation of Oruru, who was 14 years old at the time.

The convict, in August 2015 kidnapped the teenager from Bayelsa and took her to Kano state where she was converted to Islam and married her off without the consent of her parents.

She was eventually reunited with her parents after six months. She gave birth to a baby in May 2016.

Delivering the judgment on Thursday, Jane Inyang, the judge found Dahiru guily on four out of five of the charges preferred against him.

On count one, he was found not guilty; count two, he got a five-year sentence; on count three, he got seven years, and on count four, seven years.

The judge held that the sentences would run concurrently. This means the convict will only spend seven years in prison.
