Yunusa Dahiru, the alleged abductor of Ese Oruru, has admitted that he impregnated 14-year-old girl. He made the confession at the premises of the Federal High Court, Yenegoa, where he was arraigned.
The young man was arraigned on a five-count charge of abduction, illicit s*x, among others.
During an encounter with newsmen outside the court room, Yunusa admitted impregnating Ese but claimed that he was unaware until the Police told him, following the medical report on Ese.
When asked if he was responsible for the pregnancy, Yunusa replied, “I am responsible for the pregnancy but I heard about the pregnancy from the Police that it is five-month old.”
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. The court will try to find out the circumstances surrounding the saga.
