A Federal High Court sitting in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, has granted a N3 million bail to Yunusa Dahiru, the abductor of 14-year-old Ese Oruru.

The development was made known through a post by the non-governmental organisation, KHAN Initiative, which launched the campaign for the freedom of Ese from her abductor.

KHAN Initiative said Yunusa was granted N3million bail and ordered to produce two sureties, (one renowned title holder and one L12 civil servant). Both sureties are to submit tax clearance certificates amongst other credentials.

The Count One charge read: “That you, Yunusa Dahiru, a male, resident in Opolo-Eipie area of Yenagoa in Bayelsa State, conspired with the duo of Dankano Mohammed and Mallam Alhassan, between August 2015 and February, 2016, to commit an offence of abduction and thereby committed offence punishable under section 27(a) of the Trafficking in Persons (prohibition) Enforcement and Administration Act, 2015.”
