An insider who spoke to The Cable said: “The Sokoto State Human Rights Commission, along with the team set up by the police, questioned suspects and detained three persons in connection with the issue.” Some hisbah (Sharia police) personnel had taken Patience to an imam in Runjin Sambo area of Sokoto with a claim that she wanted to convert to Islam.” The imam asked of her age and was told she was 14. He was also instructed to let her go, but the Imam then informed the hisbah. Rather than let her return to her family house, they took her to the Sarkin Baki who claims he provides residence to indigent persons. He then kept her in his house since September. When investigators met with him Friday, March 4, Patience was seen with his other children and family members. He claimed he adopted the girl because he didn’t want to let her be with the hisbah. A police said when interviewed, Patience claimed she was afraid of returning home because of possible reprisal from her siblings.

The brother of the abducted teenager identified as Tsembelee Daniel Sorkaa raised the alarm on Facebook about her disappearance, but it did not gain traction until the case of Oruru started playing out. Her father Adaji, an Idoma from Benue state, said his daughter was forcefully abducted by hisbah in Gidan Kukah, Runjin Sambo area Sokoto, on August 12, 2015. Meanwhile, the Governot of Sokoto state, Aminu Tambuwal, in a statement issued by his spokesman, Imam Imam ordered an investigation into the matter.
