Speaking to Saturday Telegraph on the telephone yesterday, Mrs. Oruru wondered who gave Yunusa a wife that he now has the right to see the baby.
“What kind of question is that? Who gave Yunusa a wife that he has to come and see the baby?Yunusa is like an armed robber who raped my child. Why should you ask me that kind of question? You are a woman, you know how it is. I and Yunusa don’t have any thing together let alone having access to the baby,’’ Ese’s mother Oruru fumed when asked if Yunusa would be allowed to see his baby.
Also, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Asinim Boswat, said the police were no longer holding Ese’s family, adding that although they were still under police protective custody, they were free to go any time they wanted to. He said any day they desire to go, they would be allowed to leave.
Asinim said Yunusa could not see the baby since he is in prison custody.
Ese was allegedly abducted by Yunusa, who took her to Kano State and forcefully married her after converting her to Islam. Ese was, however, brought back to Yenagoa, following public outcry while Yunusa was arrested and brought to Yenagoa to face trial for his offence.
Yunusa has, however, not been able to meet his bail conditions.
