The story of the alleged abduction of Ese Oruru, a 14 year old girl from her parents in Bayelsa flooded the traditional and social media, with different versions available for us to feed on.
However, an audio recording obtained by Premium Times, has revealed that she followed Yinusa, the alleged abductor, on her own.
In the report, a voice purportedly belonging to Ese said “No. I am not abducted by anybody.”
Reports also revealed that the teenager also rejected her family, saying she does not want to return home.
This was also confirmed by a human rights lawyer, Huwaila Mohammed who was at the at the Zonal Police Headquarters in Kano.
Mohammed said “I was there to protect her rights. When I approached her initially, she refused to talk to me. Later she opened up to me.
“She is very defiant. She told me she was born in February 1999. I personally wanted her to reunite with her family, but surprisingly she asked me to tell her mother that she will never return to Bayelsa.
“The police should ensure that she is protected and returned to her family. She is still not matured enough to take such a weighty decision without parental consent.”
Ese Oruru was allegedly abducted from Bayelsa state on August 12, 2015.
