Judge Fails To Show Up To Hear Ese Oruru’s Case

By Adenike Lucas

The Federal High Court in Yenagoa today adjourned the hearing of the case of 14-year-old, Ese Oruru, to December 8, 2016, following the absence of the presiding judge.

This is not the first time the judge handling this case has failed to show up.

Earlier in June,  Justice Aliya Nganjiwa stalled the trial. It was gathered that he was away for a meeting.

The parents of Miss Oruru who was allegedly abducted from Bayelsa state by the accused, Yunusa Dahiru spoke to Channels news about their worries about her continued detention as the case continues.

They say their daughter who gave birth on May 25 needs to return to school.

Mr Dahiru, a tricycle operator from Kano state popularly known as “Yellow,” is standing trial on a five-count charge of abduction, sexual exploitation and having unlawful carnal knowledge of a minor, Miss Oruru.
