Recently, a federal court in Nigeria sentenced Yunusa Dahiru to 26 years in prison for abducting a Christian teenager in 2015, and forcing her into an Islamic marriage.
Additionally, her name was changed to ‘Aisha’, the name of one of the wives of Islam’s prophet Mohammad.
Her abduction gained media attention as her parents raised public awareness.
Months later, state police rescued Ese. It was revealed that she was five months pregnant with her daughter.
Ese’s family say they faced much harassment in their quest to have their daughter returned to them.
“I’m very happy and grateful because I see that all my suffering is not in vain,” Ese’s father said. “This case will serve as a deterrent to others. I thank God that truth has prevailed.”
