On Ese Oruru Abduction



SIR: There is a law against abduction and kidnap in Nigeria! The law stipulates punishment for anyone found guilty of kidnap. It is established now that the 13-year old girl, Ese Oruru, from Bayelsa State, was kidnapped by one kidnapper known as Yunusa Dahiru, from Kano State!

The little girl was forced into marriage (a form of rape) and was also forced to change her religion (made a sex slave). All these unconstitutional acts are criminal in nature! The concealment of Yunusa’s crimes by the Kano emirate is unfortunate and all culprits must pay dearly for these!

And all the hypocritical noisemakers who constitute themselves as BBOG are ominously silent all this while that Ese was in sex slavery? They did not ask Lamido Sanusi and Yunusa with the conspiratorial Hisbah (sharia police) to release Ese Oruru?

Now that Ese is rescued, Yunusa and collaborators in the crime must be prosecuted under Nigerian criminal law and not under prejudicial sharia! That hoodlum, called Yunusa must be sentenced accordingly, as deterrent to other criminals like him!
