Bashir Ahmed, Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on New Media, has promised to plead the conviction of Yunusa Dahiru, who was sentenced to 26 years imprisonment for child abduction, trafficking and sexual exploitation of Ese Oruru.

KanyiDaily had reported how Ese Oruru was abducted by Dahiru in Bayelsa in 2015 as a 13-year-old girl, before being taken to Kano where she was allegedly forcefully married and impregnated by Dahiru.

Justice Jane Inyang of a Federal High Court in Yenagoa, had on Thursday, found Dahiru guilty on four different charges and sentenced him to 26 years in jail.

A Twitter user, Hammad Yusuf Saleh, had asked Ahmed to intervene in the conviction by the court which he claims was manipulated. He wrote:

“Please Bashir, do something about Yunusa Yellow for Allah’s sake, he is wrongly accused and sentenced, the whole matter is manipulated, we need to appeal for him.”

In response, Ahmed said: “My brother, I do not have the power to do anything against the judgment of the court, but I will try to contact those whom I think are capable.”

Following the backlash by Nigerians who took to Twitter to condemn him for promising to influence the case, Bashir Ahmad wrote:

“I commented on the Yunusa Yellow saga earlier, without knowing and understanding the details of the case. Eloping or rather, kidnapping a minor and forcing her to marry you shouldn’t be taken lightly. A condemnable act!”
