Indications emerged on Wednesday that the 14 year old Ese Oruru who was abducted by Yunusa Dahiru last August and taken to Kano might be carrying a 5 month pregnancy.
A source at the Force Medical unit, where Ese was made to undergo check up, told THISDAY that the teenager was discovered to be five months pregnant.
The source said obviously, she was already pregnant before agreeing to move to Kano with Yunusa, but quickly added that the girl is not in the best form medically.
It was also discovered that the white Hijab dress she wore on her arrival from Kano on Tuesday, was used to cover the pregnancy even though her physical condition and looks created a suspicion.
Inspector General of Police, IG, Solomon Arase had issued a directive that she should be handed over to the Gender and Child Protection Unit and later, a team from the Medical Department of the Force to carry out a comprehensive medical examination of the girl-child at the Police Medical Facility in Area 1, Garki, to certify her medical status and emotional state.
When contacted, the Force Spokesperson, Olabisi Kolawole, Assistant Commissioner of Police, said she could not confirm the report, claiming that she is not a medical officer.
When asked further, as a mother, if she noticed any sign of pregnancy in the girl-child, Kolawole said she only saw her for the first time when she was brought to the Force Headquarters, Abuja and could not state if Ese had a new look or not.
Meanwhile, the IG has directed the Bayelsa State Police Command to take over investigation in the child abduction saga because the offense was committed in Bayelsa which is the place of residence of the abductor, Yunusa Dahiru.
Yunusa will be moved to Yenegoa to face interrogation and prosecution for kidnapping and child abuse as well as violence against a girl-child.
Arase also paid for the flight of both mother and daughter back to Yenagoa via Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
