The rescued 14-year-old girl, Ese Oruru, was on Thursday morning delivered of a baby girl.
Ese was allegedly abducted in Bayelsa State in August 2015 and taken to Kano State where she was converted to Islam and married out without the consent of her parents. Since her return to Yenagoa, she has been living at the Police Officers’ Mess in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital.
She was said to have gone into labour on Thursday morning and taken to the Bayelsa State Government House Clinic where she was delivered of a baby girl. Ese’s father, Charles Oruru, obviously elated by the news, confirmed the development.
Charles said his daughter was delivered of the baby about 10.15am on Thursday. He said the young girl, who was in Junior Secondary School at the time she was taken away, was in a good state after going through the early morning labour stress. “Ese and her daughter are hale and hearty. She gave birth to a baby girl at the Government House Clinic, Yenagoa. I just came back from the hospital,” Charles said. Read more
