The emir of Kano, Mallam Muhammadu Sanusi II, on Monday, ordered the state Sharia Commission to immediately start the process of repatriating and reuniting the 14-year-old teenager, Ese Oruru, allegedly abducted by one Yunusa, forcefully converted to Islam and married off, with her family.
He directed that the repatriation should be done in partnership with the office of the Deputy Inspector General of police, zone 1.
The Emir had originally distanced himself and the Kano emirate council from the purported abduction of Ese who was taken from Bayelsa to Kano by Yunusa.
"I have ordered the sharia commission to liaise with the office of Deputy Inspector General of police zone to repatriate and reconcile the teenager with her family immediately," the Vanguard quotes him as saying.
More detail later.
