The Nigerian Police Force has said it would speak to Nigerians on Wednesday about Ese Oruru, the teenager who was abducted from Bayelsa State and taken to Kano.
The police spokesperson, Olabisi Kolawole, said the force was compelled to postpone a scheduled press conference due to the late arrival of the girl’s parents from Bayelsa.
At the time of filing this report, Ese Oruru’s parents, according to the police, had only reached Abaji, a suburb of Abuja, and may not make it early enough to the Force Headquarters.
The police had waited for Oruru’s parents to arrive before addressing journalists.
Ms. Kolawole spoke over six hours after Ese Oruru arrived from Kano.
The teenager, who was taken to Kano for a forced marriage, was driven into the Nigeria Police Headquarters in Abuja at exactly 12.55pm Tuesday.
Dressed in a native attire and white hijab, she was accompanied into the complex by two women and three men, all dressed in Hausa native attires. One of the men, believed to be Mr. Yellow arrived in handcuffs.
