Mrs Oruru said:
"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.In addition, one of Ese's siblings was attacked by another group of people on his way to deliver logistics to Ese and her baby.
"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 Yinusa in the court premises during one of the proceedings, wearing a red cap."
"The men sounded like they were Hausas; they asked her if she was going to the house the ‘government had paid for them.The mother also added that the number of security provided for Ese and her baby has reduced, exposing the family to possible attacks.
"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."
