Yunusa’s Mother Insists Ese Oruru & Her Son Were Young Lovers & is Taken Aback by Media Attention

Yunusa-Yellow-Dahiru

Yunusa Dahiru‘s mother, just like his father – Dahiru Bala, insists their son was a house help for Ese Oruru and her family for a decade, and that the two were in love. She also says her and her husband condemned Yunusa for abducting Ese, as they know it’s illegal.

She’s also surprised by the media attention her family is getting, and prays her son gets through what she called a tough phase in his life.

“All  of a sudden, my house has become a  Mecca  of sorts,  and while I  continue  to wonder the intrusion  into  our private  lives,  the more I  am  confused about the  unnecessary spotlight.

“My boy has been with them for 10 years,  and when we heard of a love relationship between Yunusa and Ese, my husband did  the needful to arrest the situation.

We may be poor and uneducated, but the fact remains that we run our lives based  on the dictates of our religion, and we don’t need anyone to lecture us on the illegality of  Yunusa’s action”.

    Madam . why so delusional? had u met this young girl before the day she was kidnapped? so your son told you he was in love nd you just took it like that.. accept the fact that whilst your son was planning to kidnap the child he was clearly lying to you all.. abeg….

      Madam let us reverse this situation.
      Your daughter who is a teenager was abducted by a Bayelsa man and ran to Bayelsa took her to church wed her and converted her to Christianity by force .Didn’t stop at that Raped her(yes it is rape as long as she is underage ) and got her pregnant .
      What will you do and what will the Hausa /Muslim community do to all the Bayelsans there in your village.

      Is this how you Muslims marry in your tradition . Is looking at a girl not an abomination in your culture . What kind of hypocrisy is this .Your son is a pedophile and you and your husband are accessories to this because even if your son did wrong you should have taken the girl back home or contacted the parents to take their daughter. Yinusa deserves to go to Jail. period. He had Canal knowledge of an underage girl

    What type of love? Your son brought a little girl all the way from Bayelsa and for 5 months you did not get in touch with her parents to enquiry about this so called love!!! Silly woman!

    She wants to defend her son. Why is she just speaking up? Was she aware of her son’s action? What was her reaction? So many questions

    Yunusa’s lawyer should quit trying.
    The guy is in trouble.
    Statutory rape was committed.
    Nothing can change that.
    The more his parents try to defend him, the more stupid, ridiculous and disgusting it becomes.
    Even if their son lived with the girls family for 10 years, is that not the more reason why Yunusa should have known that Ese was a minor??

    I’m told by “well-meaning” people not to jump to conclusions cos Ese & Mallam Yellow could really have been “in love” and had decided to elope.
    But NO NO NO. There’s no excuse tenable ever for me that a 13-year old would “elope” with an adult. NEVER!!! I can’t begin to imagine the psychological trauma she’s already exposed to.
    I hope the government sees this to a logical conclusion by punishing all those involved, including the police. This case should serve as a deterrent for all those who would want to do same. We must collectively speak out against inimical actions like this, without using religious or cultural explanations to wish them away.
    Above all, I hope Ese and her family receive appropriate emotional support.

    wrong is wrong agreed, but no one has pointed the fact that Ese family had Yunusa for ten years meaning it was child labour to be a househelp for them since age 12 assuming Yunusa is 22yrs now.
    lets be careful when we come to social media to judge.

      Abeg, how many of dese parents know what dere child actually does in d city.
      A lot of dem robbers in d city, do u think dey tell their parents what they are actually doing.
      They just send money home and mention one profession to their parents. How about Yunusas parents who let their 12yr old boy travel all d way to d South south from Kano.
      Parents will always support dere kids and believe whatever story Yunusa wld have cooked up. Who wants to believe dere son is a sick pedophile.

    No Nigerian girl elopes with a houseboy I’m sorry to say. Never heard of it.
    Even d secondary school girls are looking for who wld buy them snacks at break time or buy them a val gift.
    If she is to have a boyfriend, it will probably be with smone in her school.
    I don’t believe this crap Romeo and Juliet story.
    It doesn’t exist in Nigeria.

      Thank you! Finally someone gets my point. I’m northern born and bred. Very highly unlikely that yinusa was their house boy. Hausa boys rarely are live- in house boys. Also his friends say he was a keke driver not house boy and they should know . And seriously who would elope with a house boy?! Let’s reason it now. Of all the boys in Bayelsa who can buy biscuit for her, it’s a smelly mai-ruwa/keke driver she will fall in love with. Haba my pipu!

    Please, how many south south people have hausa boys as househelp? You condemned it yet didn’t take steps to call her parents?

    Hmmmm!she is just further confirming the fact that the stealing of girl child is a norm in the north. After all after Ese’s case came a revelation of similar cases in core north that have been swept under the carpet! ! The rights of the girl child needs to be upheld.

    Having lived in Kano for 7years and presently working in Bayelsa, I will say there is more to this story than what both parties are telling us. Child marriage is normal (though crazy and absurd to me) in Kano, it happens every day within themselves so Yunusa’s parent will never see anything wrong in what their son did as they already have a relationship with Ese and her parent before the abduction. On the other hand teenage pregnancy and having children out of wedlock is very rampant in Bayelsa, the people here also do not see anything wrong with having sex at a very young age and Ese growing up in such environment will not see anything bad in having a boyfriend at her age and if her parents try to stop her they can both decide to elope to a place like Kano where getting married at such age is allowed.
    So for me, our government and parents really need to look into these wrongs and educate the girl child and train their children in the right way. Yunusa’s will learn from this but if Ese was a Muslim or from Kano, the marriage would have held without noise because this happens everyday in Kano. Likewise if Yunusa was from Bayelsa and impregnates Ese, it would have been normal. The only reason why this made the news was the “kidnap” which could have been a joint decision.

    But our society either north or south should put an end to child marriage, exposing kids to sex and put an end to teenage pregnancy aka follow me born in Yenagoa

      A joint decision between a 13 year old girl and a 25 year old man??? Please, reset and reboot your brain!!!

      Yinusa did not just impregnate a 13 year old, he held her for almost a year without her parent’s consent and his parents aided in keeping this child away from her parents for that long.
      So,no, under-aged Bayelsan girl having children or whatever is a completely different situation from taking a 13 year old, impregnating and marrying this child, and holding her against her parents will.
      Yes, something needs to be done to grown up men who sleep with teenagers, whatever tribe they’re from, that is statutory rape and a crime.
      As far as we can reasonably conclude, there’s not “more to this” than the fact that an adult male groomed a teenager into sexual intercourse, abducted and impregnated her,tried to convert her to his religion against hers and her parents will, remained her and kept her away from her family for several months.
      The fact that anyone would even find a justification is sickening.

    I feel like giving this woman a double slap on her two ears for her brain to reset because it is obvious she has a brain but does not use it correctly. At what age did this love affair start that any mother will feel justified about it. Was it when Ese was 3 years old, or 7 or 12.
