Ese Oruru Saga: Court sentences Yunusa Yellow to 26 years
The Federal High Court sitting in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, has delivered judgement on Ese Oruru saga, a teenager who reportedly eloped with one Yunusa Dahiru.
The court presided over by Justice Jane Inyang sentenced Dahiru to 26 years in prison.
Jane 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, according to the judge. would run concurrently.
Yunusa Dahiru was accused of abduction and forced marriage, accusations many see as a deliberate move to punish Yunusa Dahiru by powerful forces behind the case.
