The much anticipated handover of Ese Oruru, the teenager allegedly abducted from her Bayelsa home will now take place tomorrow.

Force spokesperson, Bisi Kolawole, told anxious journalists who waited for several hours at the Police Headquarters in Abuja that the inability of Ese’s parents to arrive on time led to the postponement of the exercise.

Ese was allegedly abducted eight months ago and moved to Kano for forced marriage.

She was freed on Monday night, following a directive by the Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, to the Commissioner of Police in Kano State, Mohammed Katsina.

Reports say Miss Oruru was allegedly abducted from her Bayelsa Home, and her parents, after trailing her to Kano, battled for months to have her back.

Human rights group, the Muslim Rights Concern is asking the authorities to immediately commence the prosecution of Yunusa, the man alleged to have abducted her.

Her family anticipates her return home to Bayelsa, and her father shared via plans with Channelstv on rehabilitating Ese when she returns home.
