The Senator representing Bayelsa East, Ben Murray Bruce on Monday disclosed that he has contacted the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammad Sanusi II, to demand the immediate release of 14-year-old Ese Oruru, who was allegedly abducted last August in Opolo, Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, by a Kano indigene, named Yunusa.
Reports have it that Ese, who was 13 as at the time of her alleged abduction was taken to Kano by Yunusa, who converted her to Islam and married her. Parents of the girl had reportedly made several trips to Kano, where they unraveled the plights of their daughter.
The parents said they have involved the police, but efforts to get the Emir of Kano, at whose palace the girl is believed to be held to resolve the matter and ensure the return of the 14-year-old to them failed to yield positive result.
But while noting that the monarch has cleared himself of any complicity in the abduction, the activist-Senator came hard on the Inspector General of Police, IGP Solomon Arase, for failing to rescue Ese from her abductor.
Senator Ben Bruce shed more light on a series of tweets as seen below.
