Ese Oruru, the teenage girl who was since last August abducted from her homestead in Bayelsa State and taken to Kano where she was allegedly forced to marry a certain Yunusa, has been discovered to be pregnant.
Police authorities discovered she was 5 months pregnant and this reportedly initiated her being handed over to the Gender and Child Protection Unit.
A team from the Medical Department of the Force was thereafter directed by the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Solomon Arase, to carry out a comprehensive medical examination on her at the Police Medical Facility in Area 1, Garki.
It is alleged that the white Hijab dress she wore on her arrival from Kano on Tuesday, was used to cover the pregnancy even though her physical condition and looks created suspicion, Vanguard reports.
However, upon verifying her medical status after results emerged, the IGP directed the Bayelsa State Police Command to take over investigation in the child violence offence saga because according to sources, the offence was committed in Bayelsa which is the place of residence of the abductor, Yunusa Dahiru.
Meanwhile, the abductor, Yunusa who may be charged with kidnapping and child abuse as well as violence, may be moved from detention at the Force Headquarters in Abuja to Yenegoa to be properly interrogated and prosecuted accordingly. #CAPNews
