The parents of Ese Oruru have denied claims that Yinusa worked for them, describing several of the claims made by his father as false.
“Yinusa did not work with us for 10 years as the father claimed. That is not true. We only got to know about him in the area in 2012,” her mom said.
Ese and her mom had been taken back to Bayelsa from Abuja by the police on Wednesday. However, her journey back home is not yet complete as she was made to spend the night at the Police Officers Mess in Yenagoa.
Her mom and two of her siblings are currently at the officer’s mess to see her. The police have insisted that only her immediate family members can see her, with Journalists also denied entry.
It is expected that Governor Seriake Dickson will meet the 14-year-old and her parents later today.
