Ese Oruru Set To Go Back To School 8 Months After Being Rescued

Eight months after 14-year-old Ese Oruru was rescued and reunited with her family, plans have now been finalized by her parents to return the teenager to school and she is expected to resume her education as a first-year Senior Secondary School pupil in Delta State, Punch reports.

Ese was a 13-year-old JSS3 pupil of Central Epie Secondary School, Opolo, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, (read here) when she was allegedly abducted, raped and impregnated by one Yunusa Dahiru, aka Yellow, on August 12, 2015, from her mother’s food stall and taken to Kano.

Ese’s parents had said their teenage daughter had been forced to convert to Islam, and forced into child marriage without their consent.

Speaking with SUNDAY PUNCH, Ese’s supportive parents said they were happy that their daughter was finally going back to school, and that she was eager to move on with her life and education.

”She was excited when we informed her about it. She said she was so happy that she can now finally continue her education,” her mother, Rose Oruru, said.

Since her release in early March, the teen mum of a five-month-old baby girl, had been in protective custody of the Bayelsa State Police command.

The teenager had reportedly told her parents and siblings a few months ago that she had felt trapped despite being in protective custody of the police because she had not been able to resume schooling like her mates.

It was also learnt that Ese has been coping well with life as a teenage mother with the help of her family.

In May, the teenager welcomed a baby girl at the Government Hospital, Yenagoa.
