Reports making the rounds on social media claim that Yunusa Dahiru, who was jailed on May 21 by a Federal High Court in Yenagoa for kidnapping 14-year-old Ese Oruru in 2015, was set free.
The Bayelsa State Command of the Nigeria Correctional Services has denied the reports that Yunusa had been released from prison through the influence of a serving senator in Kano State.
He said Dahiru, who goes by the nickname, Yellow, was still serving his jail term at the Medium Security Custodial Centre at Okaka, Yenagoa.
Edoghotu said, “How can they say he has been released; someone who was just found guilty and sentenced to 26 years?
“He will serve at least 17 years, four months before he can be freed. That is if he is of good conduct. But if he misbehaves, he will serve the entire 26 years. So, it is not true and can never be true that he has been freed.”Exchange your Bitcoins & Perfect Money to Naira - Get Paid Automatically in 10 Seconds!
