Yinusa Dahiru, the teenager, who allegedly abducted, raped and impregnated a 14-year-old, has bestowed a name on the baby girl delivered by Ese Oruru.
Ese had given birth to a baby girl on Thursday morning at the Government House Clinic after she went into labour at her Police Officers Mess temporary residence.
It is said that Yinusa, who is currently cooling off at the Okaka Medium Security Prisons, due to his inability to meet the conditions attached to his bail, broke into smiles, when he was told that Ese had given birth to a baby girl.
Sources, who broke the news, confirmed that the 18-year-old was elated over the news, and he immediately said he was going to name her Fatima, a name borne by the daughter of Prophet Muahammed, The Sun reports.
“Yinusa has been told about the birth of a baby girl by Ese Oruru. He was called from Kano and told that he has a daughter after the Internet pictures were confirmed to be true. He was very elated over the news and he immediately gave her the name Fatima after the daughter of Prophet Mohammed and because of the circumstances surrounding the birth of the girl, which he believes is divine. The name Fatima is the personification of high virtues and purity. As I talk to you, I can tell you that he is eagerly waiting to see the daughter,” a source said.
However, when contacted, the father of Ese, Mr. Charles Oruru, said he is yet to give a name to his granddaughter.
Mr Oruru explained that the family is financially helpless to run any naming ceremony in line with the tradition.
He also stated that he is not interested if Yinusa was aware of the birth of the baby, adding that the family is willing to forgive Yinusa if he shows remorse for his mistakes in abducting Ese to Kano.
His words: “I don’t want to know if he has been told about the birth of the girl and has given her a name. All I know is that I am yet to give her a name. We don’t have money, so we are not thinking of a naming ceremony. As I said before, we are grateful to God that she delivered safely. As for Yinusa he has not realized his mistakes for him to show remorse. He has to apologise for the whole world to hear before we would now talk of forgiveness because the case is beyond us now, the whole world is aware”
