A Shariah court in the Filin Hockey area of Kano metropolis has issued a ruling for the remand of popular TikTok skit maker, Murja Kunya, to be held in a correctional center.

In a surprising turn of events, TikTok skit maker, Murja Kunya, was on Thursday arraigned in a Shariah court in the Filin Hockey area of the Kano metropolis on charges bordering on defamation of character, vulgarity, public nuisance, and breach of public peace. According to Daily Post, the charge of defamation was added to the counts following a complaint filed by two other TikTokers, Aisha Najamu and Idris Maiwushirya, accusing Murja of defaming their character.

The prosecuting counsel, Lamido Sorondinki, read all the charges to the accused, who plead not guilty. Afterward, Murja’s lawyer Yasir Musa moved an application for her bail, but it was opposed by the prosecution counsel. The judge, Abdullahi Halliru, ordered the accused person to be remanded in prison custody and adjourned the case till February 16th for ruling on the bail application.

Murja’s arrest was carried out by the police in Kano on the order of the Shari’a court. The case has raised a lot of questions among the public and on social media platforms, with many people expressing their opinions and calling for a fair trial.

TikTok has been a popular platform for many young people, including Murja, who has gained a significant following for her comedic skits. The arrest and subsequent charges have come as a shock to many of her fans and followers, who have taken to social media to express their support.

The case is still ongoing and the outcome remains uncertain. Nevertheless, it is a reminder of the importance of freedom of expression and the responsibility that comes with it. The events surrounding Murja’s case will be closely watched by the public, and the outcome will have far-reaching consequences for the future of TikTok and its users.
