Today, I cry #FreeEse because Kano man Yinusa is a paedophile, a kidnapper and a sex offender, and everybody who has thwarted the course of justice and moral rightness in this story is as guilty as if they had kidnapped this 13-year-old girl themselves. This is abhorrent.
Apologies if this story does not come across as written by an articulate person – I am struggling for words and I cannot seem to stop shaking.
It is alleged that a poor excuse for a man, Yinusa, saw a 13-year-old girl, Ese Oruru, and kidnapped her right from her mother’s shop, carried her interstate to Kano where he changed her name, converted her to Islam, and then married her.
A poor, distraught mother has given up everything to trail this man all the way to Kano, only to be met by roadblocks, barriers and negativity along the way – presumably by other men who think it is perfectly fine to carry out such dastardly acts.
It is now said that this girl is within the custody of the Emir of Kano, although even this fact has set my skin crawling. If Emir Sanusi thinks it is bad enough for the girl not to be with Yinusa, then why is he holding on to this child?? There is no secret that her mother is looking for her – Punch Nigeria brought this story to the attention of the whole world and her mother would be very easy to find, I imagine.
Has she joined the king’s harem? Are they making someone’s child pray five times a day against the wishes of the birth mother? Does the ‘husband’ get ‘conjugal visits’ while this child is being held by one of the gatekeeper of our land? What is all this nonsense? What is this? Why is Sanusi allowing this?
Our hearts will break over no light, no water, no security, Boko Haram, no money…and it will still break because the people meant to protect our children are protecting men who want to fuck them? What is this?
If it is to find where they sell N300m cars, our leaders will know road, but to save a child, everybody is forming deafness. Horrific.
It is said that Oby Ezekwesili said she found out that the Emir overruled the Sharia court and asked that the girl be returned but till this day, the girl hasn’t been returned.
Another seeming paedophile-enabler, IGP Arase, who was charged with returning the girl has claimed that the Emir’s Hajj has led to the delay in releasing the girl.
How can ANY God hear your prayers when you keep evil in your left hand and iniquity in your right?
Not only should this girl, named Eseoghene by those who bore her and not Aisha by those who STOLE her, be released immediately, everybody who brought this about – from Yinusa to village chiefs who only wish to preserve customs that are beneficial to their rancid penises – should be interrogated to the fullest and arrested.
As for you, Buhari: you knew the strength of social media when you wanted to win an election. ACT. TODAY. Or by this same social media will you be judged. The work is not the winning of the elections, it is doing what you said you would. And when one mother cries; we ALL cry.
Put your bloody shirt back on, shed the white bedsheet, and remind us that we have laws in this country. Taaaah!
Osinbajo, you should be ashamed of yourself too. What, you haven’t yet heard this story, oga Pastor turned Presido Boy-Boy? Does your Bible not say anything about this heartrending incident? Fix up, man.
My heart goes out to every woman who has suffered injustice because we live in a patriarchal society that continues to hush our cries and make us seem like chattel, like property, like inconsequential human beings.
That is all.
