Yunusa Dahiru alias Yellow, the alleged abductor of 14 years old Ese Oruru, has claimed that her mother, Mrs. Rose Oruru, was aware of his relationship with her daughter. He made the allegation during his arraignment at the Federal High Court sitting in Yenagoa on a five-count charge of abduction, illicit sex and unlawful canal knowledge among others.
He also admitted that he impregnated the 14-year-old girl but was unaware of the pregnancy until the police report. He disclosed this during an encounter with newsmen at the premises of the Court, adding that the mother was also aware of their decision to elope to Kano.
However, he said Ese’s father was in the dark of his relationship with his daughter and the plan to elope to Kano. Ese, who was 13 as at the time of her alleged abduction, was taken to Kano, by Yunusa, where he converted her to Islam and married her.
