A Kanywood actress, Amal Umar, has been arraigned before Magistrate Court No. 24 in Gyadi-Gyadi area of Kano metropolis over alleged attempt to bribe a law enforcement officer.

The actress was accused of attempted bribery involving the sum of N250,000 offered to a Police officer identified as ASP Salisu Bujama of the Nigeria Police Force, NPF, Zone 1 headquarters in Kano State.

According to the prosecutor, the alleged bribe was aimed at halting Police investigation into alleged financial misappropriation perpetrated by the actress’ boyfriend, identified as Ramadan Inuwa.


The saga unfolded when a complaint was filed by one Yusuf Adamu through his lawyer, H.I. Dederi, to the Assistant Inspector General, AIG, Umar Mohd Sanda, on August 18, 2022, detailing how Mr Inuwa allegedly misappropriated a substantial amount of money, totalling N40million, in his cell phone business.
