Yunusa Yellow, the alleged abductor of Ese Oruru, appeared in this photo posing behind his tricycle in Bayelsa State last year.
Mr. Yunusa, who is currently at the Police Force Headquarters in Abuja, ran commercial tricycling business in Bayelsa State.
He left Bayelsa in August last year with Miss Oruru to Kano, where he converted her to Islam and planned to marry her.
In an interview with PREMIUM TIMES on Wednesday, Mr. Yunusa’s father, Dahiru Bala, claimed his son is 22-year old.
Police authorities said on Tuesday that Mr. Yunusa would face criminal charges for abducting the teenager from her home.
