Yesterday, Ese Oruru gave birth to a baby girl at the Government House Clinic Yenagoa, Bayelsa.
The teenager was kidnapped from her parents and taken to Kano where she “married” her captor. After public outcry sparked by a campaign launched by the Punch Newspaper via the #FreeEse campaign, she was rescued and returned to her parents’ care.
At the time of her rescue, she explained that she was “confused” and unsure of the next steps for her life.
The media may move to the next story soon, her parents have limited resources. Based on her initial statements, intensive counselling is needed to help her understand the ordeal and plan for her future. Despite the constraints of being a mum, Ese deserves to proceed with her education against all odds.
