A Federal High Court sitting in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, has sentenced one Yinusa Dahiru to 24 years in prison for abducting and forcing into marriage a teenager, Ese Oruru.
Oruru was reportedly abducted and taken to Kano State and forced into marriage – a union that later produced a baby.
Justice Jane Inyang sentenced Dahiru for four out of the five-count charges brought against him. The sentences would run concurrently. More details shortly.
