The Assistant Police Commissioner in charge of Zone 1 Police Headquarters, Kano, Shuaibu Gambo, on Tuesday said Yunusa Yellow, the alleged abductor of a Bayelsa teenager, Ese Oruru, would be charged to court to face criminal charges.
Mr. Yunusa and Miss Oruru were transported to the Police Force Headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday.
“She would be handed over to police commissioner in charge of Bayelsa State, who in return will hand her to her family,” he said.
According to him, the Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, would address a press conference on the matter, saying the IGP would give details of the case to the press.
Mr. Shuaibu, however, denied that Miss Oruru was taken to hospital for check-up.
“That is all I can tell you. I promise to talk to you as soon as the IG gives me go-ahead. Pre-empting him is an act of insubordination,” he added.
Miss Oruru had arrived the police headquarters in Abuja from Kano at 12.55 p.m on Tuesday.
Dressed in a native attire and white hijab, she was accompanied into the complex by by two women and three men, all dressed in Hausa native attires.
Our reporter later identified one of the men to be Yunusa Yellow.
One of the women, who identified Miss Oruru, however, could not say her name before the officers quickly took her away with the others.
On arrival, the teenager and her delegation were ushered into the office of Force Spokesperson, Bisi Kolawole, but then quickly taken away to another office shortly afterwards.
Waiting journalists were prevented from taking photographs of the delegation.
Mrs Kolawole later told journalists that the police was waiting for Miss Oruru’s parents to arrive before giving a press conference.
