A Federal High Court sitting in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, has sentenced one Yinusa Dahiru to 26 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.
Delivering the judgement, Justice Jane Inyang acquitted Dahiru on count one but jailed him five years (count two), seven years (count three) seven years (count four) and seven years, count five.
The sentences would run concurrently.
More details shortly…
