The Bayelsa State Police Command has said ESE Oruru and her baby have left police protective custody.
Ese’s parents had decried her continuous stay in protective custody, stating that she was missing school.
Her parents had also claimed that the protective custody was not comfortable for a nursing mother and her baby.
The Bayelsa State Police Public Relations Officer, Asinim Butswats in a statement on Friday confirmed that she has been released.
“They (the parents) wrote an application that they want her to leave and the police released them.
“And honestly I don’t even know where she is now”, he stressed.
The Chairman of the Civil Liberty Organisation in Bayelsa, Chief Nengi James, also said, leaving Bayelsa was the best thing for the Oruru family.
“It was part of our (CLO) recommendation to the family that she should leave Bayelsa because of the psychological and emotional trauma she has been facing since she returned.
“She was also under threat and it was only natural that she leaves this environment.
“More over, the police were treating them as if they were prisoners and the parents complained to us.
“The Bayelsa state government has tried but some of their other promises on the education of the girl were not forthcoming.
“The Delta state government has disappointed the family. They have not fulfilled their promises and this is very disappointing,” he added.
