Yinusa Dahiru has been sentenced to 26 years in prison for abducting and forcing a teenager, Ese Oruru into marriage.
A Federal High Court sitting in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, gave the judgement on Thursday.
The teenager was said to have been abducted by the convict, taken to Kano State and forced into marriage – a relationship that later produced a baby.
Justice Jane Inyang in her judgement sentenced Dahiru for four out of the five-count charges brought against him. The sentences would run concurrently.
