Abuja - According to reports, 14-year-old Ese Oruru, who was abducted from Bayelsa State and taken to Kano by one Yinusa, is allegedly five months pregnant.
The teenager was said to be noticeably pregnant despite an attempt to cover her protruding belly with a hijab, according to Vanguard citing very reliable sources.
Ese is further said to have undergone a test at the Police Medical Facility in Abuja leading to the discovery of her pregnancy.
Her condition reportedly led Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase to change plans to transport her to Bayelsa by road.
The teenager has been reunited with her mother and is expected to return to Bayelsa by air today, March 2, 2016.
Ese’s case has led to widespread outrage around the country since news of her abduction, which took place in August 2015, went public. She was also said to have been forced into marriage and converted to Islam by Yinusa.
The abduction has also been surrounded by much controversy due to the involvement of the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.
Earlier media reports had it that Yinusa was being protected by persons within the Emir’s palace.
The claim was further strengthened after Arase said that he couldn’t save the girl without Sanusi’s intervention.
Yinus is currently in police custody, the Force Public Relations Officer, Bisi Kolawole has confirmed.
