Ese Oruru: Dickson condemns abduction, warns parents to be vigilant

The Bayelsa State Governor, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson, has condemned the abduction of 14 year-old student, Ms Ese Oruru, in Yenagoa and taken to Kano for a forceful marriage, reports ITRealms.
Just as he warned parents and guardians "to be extremely vigilant, especially in the monitoring of the activities of their children, with a view to ensuring that, they do not fall victim to the antics of mischief makers."

A press statement available to ITRealms by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr. Daniel Iworiso-Markson condemned the entire action, but also expressed satisfaction with the various individuals, non-governmental and civil society groups for bringing the matter to national and international focus.

 Dickson was quoted as pledging his administration's preparedness to support every effort at not only re-uniting Ese Oruru with her family back in Yenagoa, but also ensure her proper rehabilitation and reintegration into the society to resume her normal life.

While commending the Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, for the role displayed in ensuring the release of the victim, Dickson also applauded security agencies for the swiftness and professionalism with which the matter was handled.

 He thanked the Emir of Kano, Mallam Muhammadu Sanusi II, for ensuring the safety of Ese and eventual handing over to the Police in Kano.

  "The government and people of Bayelsa State will remain eternally grateful to all those, who contributed in one way or the other in giving the issue the desired attention.
