Supposed Human Rights lawyer, Festus Keyamo will not forget 29 Feb 2016, in a hurry. In an unexpected tweet, which was rather unbecoming of his garb as a human rights lawyer, Festus Keyamo through his twitter account tweeted concerning Ese Oruru, the 14 year old girl that was abducted from Bayelsa to Kano State and forced into marriage, “If it’s true Ese is 17 & her ‘abductor’ 18, it’s just a case of 2 young lovers playing pranks. Their parents should unite and marry them off”

What he did not expect was the backlash from Nigerians who were obviously miffed by the tweet.
In a related development, AIT News correspondents have taken the pain to track the parents of the abducted Ese Oruru to inquire from them, the true age of their daughter.. See video below
