Talking after the matter became public, Bala Dahiru, Yinusa’s daddy, stated that there was no marriage in between both.
She acquitted Dahiru on count one yet imprisoned him 5 years (count two), seven years (count three) 7 years (count four) as well as seven years, count 5.
He stated, “There was no marital relationship between my kid as well as Ese Oruru since it is illegal. I promptly reported the issue to the town head as well as on their arrival, they were required to his home that subsequently reported to the District Head at Kura.”
Justice Inyang said the sentences would certainly run simultaneously.
On Thursday, Justice Jane Inyang sentenced Dahiru to 26 years behind bars.
The Federal High Court sitting in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, has actually delivered judgement in the popular Ese Oruru instance.
In 2016, Ese, after that a teen, was apparently abducted from Bayelsa, taken to Kano State and also compelled into marriage by one Yinusa Dahiru.
Dahiru spoke at his house in Kauyen Tofa, Kura City Government in Kano.
