PRISON DENIES FREEING ESE ORURU’S JAILED ABDUCTOR
The Nigeria Correctional Services (NCS), Bayelsa Command has denied reports saying that Yinusa Dahiru, who was sentenced to 26 years imprisonment for abducting a 13-year-old Ese Oruru, has been released from prison.
Several reports have been circulating on social media revealing that Dahiru has been set free through the influence of a serving Senator in Kano State.
While responding to the reports, the Controller of NCS in the State, Seth Edoghotu, said the reports are untrue.
Edoghotu said Dahiru is currently serving his jail term at the Medium Security Custodial Centre at Okaka, Yenagoa.
“How can they say he has been released; someone who was just found guilty and sentenced to 26 years?
“He will serve at least 17 years, four months before he can be freed. That is if he is of good conduct. But if he misbehaves, he will serve the entire 26 years. So, it is not true and can never be true that he has been freed,” the Controller explains.
Recall, Eons Intelligence, on May 21, 2020, reported that Dahiru was jailed by a Federal High Court in Yenogoa for kidnapping Oruru in 2015.
Dahiru was sentenced on four counts which accumulated his jail term to 26 years.
