A Kano based skit maker, Murja Kunya, will spend some time in a correctional center for allegedly being a public nuisance.
A Shariah court sitting in Filin Hockey area of the Kano metropolis ordered the TikTok skit maker to be remanded over some of her videos which the Kano State Hisbah board considered indecent.
The skit maker was on Thursday arraigned on charges that border on defamation of character, vulgarity, public nuisance and breach of public peace.
The defamation charge was added to the counts following a complaint filed by two other TikTokers, namely Aisha Najamu and Idris Maiwushirya, accusing Murja of defaming their character, according to Daily Post.
After all the charges were read to the accused by the prosecuting counsel, Lamido Sorondinki, she pleaded not guilty.

Thereafter, Murja’s lawyer Yasir Musa moved an application for her bail, but was opposed by the prosecution counsel.
The Judge, Abdullahi Halliru, ordered that the accused person be remanded in prison custody and subsequently adjourned the case till February 16 for ruling on the bail application.
Murja Kunya was recently arrested by the police in Kano on the order of a Shari’a court.
