He said she also claimed she feared for her life if allowed to return to her parents in Bayelsa, but that the Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of the Zone, Shuaibu Gambo, assured that no one would harm her.

It can be recalled that Miss Oruru was abducted from her Bayelsa home about eight months ago, and her parents, after trailing her to Kano, battled for months to have her back. They did not succeed.
 
Her case however caught the attention of the Nigerian authorities and citizens after the Punch newspaper did a detailed story on the matter on Sunday.
