Yunusa Dahiru, aka “Yellow” who is standing trial on a five count charge of criminal abduction, illicit sex, sexual exploitation and unlawful carnal knowledge of a minor, Miss Ese Oruru, weekend, finally left the custody of the Okaka prison in Yenagoa after spending over four months.

It was gathered that Yunusa was immediately taken to Kano, where he hails from, in company with a team of his defence lawyers who usually fly into the state during court sittings. Lawyer to the accused, Mr Kayode Olaosebekan, who confirmed the release of Yunusa, said: “His people have taken him away.”

It was learnt that contrary to insinuations that no Bayelsa indigene would be willing to stand surety for the accused because of the ethnic and religious sentiments the case seemed to have elicited, the person who eventually fulfilled the court condition was from the state.
