A Shariah court sitting at Filin Hockey, Kano has ordered the remand of a famous TikTok skit maker, Murja Kunya, in prison custody.
Miss Kunya was arrested by the police on Saturday while trying to book rooms for her guests who came from far and near for her much-publicised birthday bash.
In September last year, a Sharia court in Bichi wrote to the Kano State Commissioner of Police to arrest and investigate Miss Kunya alongside other TikTokers for corrupting the morals of the society.
DAILY NIGERIAN reports that she was arraigned on Thursday on charges that border on defamation of character, vulgarity, public nuisance and breach of public peace.
The defamation charge was added to the count, following a complaint by two other TikTokers, Aisha Najamu and Idris Maiwushirya, that Miss Kunya defamed their character for blaming them for her ordeal.
When the charges were read to her by the prosecution counsel Lamido Sorondinki, Miss Kunya pleaded not guilty
Upon her not-guilty plea, her lawyer Yasir Musa moved an application for her bail, which was opposed by the prosecution counsel.
The judge, Abdullahi Halliru, therefore ordered Miss Kunya to be remanded in prison custody and adjourned the case till February 16 for ruling on the bail application.
