Father of 14-year old Ese, a teenager allegedly abducted from Bayelsa to Kano, Charles Oruru, yesterday gave reasons why his daughter's five months pregnancy may not be aborted.
Ese's father who spoke with our correspondent via telephone conversation said at five months it was too risky to birth any idea to have her pregnancy terminated considering the consequences that might followed.
Oruru who lamented the involvement of the pregnancy into the saga explained that although her parents were not thinking of removing the pregnancy but such decision purely lies with the team of lawyers and the government who have taken charge of the case.
He noted that although h has seen Ese, his 14 years daughter was still harboured by the Bayelsa State Police Command due to the nature of her health.
Ese's father expressed happiness that his daughter was back home. He thanked Nigerians and the media for the support the family had enjoyed since the saga began.
In his words, "Yes it was confirmed that was five months pregnant. I've seen my daughter and it's true she's pregnant. We are not thinking about abortion. It's very sad that pregnancy came into the issue but it is left women lawyers and the government to decide the fate of the pregnancy.
"At five it will be too risky for us to think about abortion. The child would have almost fully developed in the womb. The whole world is now looking to us and whatever step we take will be noticed but we will meet our lawyers to discuss the pregnancy."
He stressed that now that Ese has been rescued the next phase was for Nigerians who ensured that his daughter was released to join them for the persecution of the suspect and everyone who aided teenager's abduction from Bayelsa.
He also refuted claims that Ese and Yinusa Dahiru aka Yellow had been dating before the incident saying that such claims were meant to distract attention from the case.
He disclosed that for the main time Ese would stay under police care before being finally handed over to the family.
