The Kano State Police Command on Thursday confirmed the arrest of Yunusa Dahiru, the alleged abductor of the teenager, Ese Oruru.

Addressing a news conference, Assistant Inspector General of Police, Shaibu Lawan said Yunusa would be prosecuted for taking away a minor from her parents.

He went to deny any involvement of the Kano Emirate Council on the issue and said that the Emir wrote officially to the then AIG, Tambari Yabo, to ensure the handing over of the girl to her parents.

AIG also indicted the Kano State Sharia Commission for not returning the girl to the Zone after the Emir directed that she should be handed over to her parents on the ground of being a minor. - Channels.
