The mother of the teenager stated that her family is living under fear following an assault on some of its members.
According to the woman who spoke to Punch News in an interview, members of her family have been living in fear, as suspected kidnappers are trying to steal her three months old grand-daughter.
The baby was delivered by 14 years old daughter, Ese Oruru, who was forcefully taken by one Yunusa Dahiru, from her home residence in Bayelsa state to Kano, where she was converted to Islam and put in the family way.
Oruru was however rescued by some law enforcement officers, who returned her to her family and given adequate security.

Punch reported that the once reliable security is now under threat, as some members of the family are now being threatened according to Rose.
“Towards the end of July, a man traced us from the court to the Police Officers’ Mess in Yenagoa (Bayelsa State capital). We later overheard him talking in Hausa language to someone on the telephone that he had located the place where Ese and her baby were staying.
“He said that they don’t want the baby to grow up with ‘these people,’ meaning us. My daughter ran to us when she heard that. I later sent my son to buy sachet water and he told us when he returned that he also saw the same man standing outside.
“I later saw this same man walking back and forth outside the officers’ mess, and he was still talking on the phone. His movements were suspicious. Since then, we have been living in fear.
“The same man was with Ese’s alleged abductor, in the court premises during one of the proceedings, wearing a red cap.
“Just recently one of my children was assaulted recently while on a commercial motorcycle by some unknown persons. The men sounded like they were Hausas; they asked her if she was going to the house the ‘government had paid for them.’ I didn’t know how they knew that.
“Before my daughter could rush into a tricycle, these men forcefully took away some of her belongings and the food she was bringing for Ese and the baby.
“We have reported the separate incidents to the Bayelsa State Police Commissioner, who then ordered that the security around the Officer’s Mess be beefed up.
“The number of police officers guarding our premises has since reduced, that is why I am even more afraid now."
Kizito Andah, the Executive Director, Kindling Hope Across Nations Initiative (KHAN), has called on the police to look into the matter.
