A Federal High Court sitting in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, has sentenced the abductor and paper of a Nigerian teenager, Yinusa Dahiru to 26 years.

Dahiru had abducted Oruru, and taken her to Kano, where he raped, impregnated and forced her into marriage.

The forced marriage had since produced a baby.

Delivering his judgement on Thursday, Justice Jane Inyang jailed Dahiru for 26 years, broken into, five years (count two), seven years (count three) seven years (count four) and seven years, count five.

He was acquitted on count one, and his sentence, the judge said would run concurrently.
