After the Birth of her Baby Girl, What’s Next for Ese Oruru?



Yesterday, Ese Oruru gave birth to a baby girl at the Government House Clinic Yenagoa, Bayelsa.Ese-Oruru
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.

    its heart breaking… but she will be fine… perhaps a scholarship should be given to her to complete her education all the way up to tertiary.

      A DNA. I recall Yellow denied ‘touching’ her. If there is anyone else involved in this, that person should be nabbed.
      I agree she should get a scholarship. Even, if she willingly followed Yellow, what does a 14yr old really know. Ese must go back to school.

    To be honest, we’ll forget the next day, she’s just one of many who fall to the wayside due to our failures as citizens and leaders.

    On a slightly more optimistic note, she has a child, going back to school would be a waste of scarce resources, better her and her mother be aided in starting a trade. It will bring in money faster as opposed to years on an education only for a future in the Nigerian job market. Better to focus resources on the child.

    Sorry my suggestion isn’t the cheeriest.

      Don’t be too quick to judge o and don’t assume that every single human being who went through education is currently suffering in Nigeria. There are still people in this current Nigeria who did not steal and are doing very well in their respective businesses. Let the girl get back to school, don’t give up on her just because she has a child. My aunty had a child at 18, her mum took the child. Fast forward, my aunty is currently in London, she has a great job and is married with two other children. Don’t judge this girl by her current circumstances or area. Send her back to school. She has one child not twins. Don’t ruin her future. Expose her to intense counselling and send her back to school where she can focus. Her situation is not hopeless. Those who can’t talk, walk or see go to school so why should someone stop because she has one child.

    i think all what she need most is care and she just have to go back to school. The state government shouldn’t dare leave the family alone to face this and the media should limit what they carry about her and the baby.
