BEVERLY HILLS, March 02, (THEWILL) – Mrs. Oruru, mother of Ese alleged to have abducted from Bayelsa since last August and forced into marriage in Kano by one Yunusa, has expressed appreciation to the media and Nigerians for assisting in the eventual rescue of her daughter.

Beaming with smiles while interacting briefly with newsmen on Wednesday at the Force Headquarters in Abuja, Mrs. Oruru said she had been reunited with her daughter and they would be leaving for Yenagoa, Bayelsa today.

Her meeting with members of the press came after she met with the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Solomon Arase, upon her arrival at the Louis Edet House.

The handing over of the 14-year old Ese to the mother could not be carried out on Tuesday following the delay in Mrs. Oruru's journey to Abuja. It was learnt that the food vendor was reunited with her daughter last night at a hotel where they lodged.

Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase same Wednesday, ordered the setting up of a panel of inquiry, saying he wants to know why the rescue of the teenager was delayed for over 5 months despite the fact the matter was reported to the police when it happened last August.

Arase, while meeting with journalists and the mother of the abducted girl at the Force Headquarters in Abuja, disclosed that the panel has been charged with the responsibility of investigating into why men of the Force did not immediately swing into action to recover the abducted girl after receiving complaint from Mr. Charles Oruru, who is the father.
