The Kano State Police Command have arrested a popular TikTok Skitmaker, Murja Ibrahim Kunya, for allegedly corrupting the morals of the society.

NEWSTODAYNG gathered that the 24-year-old was arrested while trying to book hotel rooms for her guests who came from far and near for her much-publicized birthday jamboree.

It was also gathered that in September last year, a Sharia court had written to the Kano State Commissioner of Police to arrest and investigate Miss Murja Ibrahim Kunya, alongside other 9 Tik Tokers for corrupting the morals of the society.

The letter reads in part: “Sequel to the complaint lodged by Muhd Ali Hamza Esq, et al, I am directed by the presiding Upper Sharia Court Judge, Bichi Division Kano to write and kindly request you to conduct investigation against the above mentioned suspects for proper action”.

The nine other TikTokers included in the letter were Mr 442, Safara’u, Dan Maraya, Amude Booth, Kawu Dan Sarki, Ado Gwanja, Ummi Shakira, Samha Inuwa and Babiana.

Recall that two young men: Mubarak Isa and Nazifi Bala were last year sentenced by a senior magistrate court to 20 strokes of cane, as well as 30 days community service after finding them guilty of defaming the character of Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje and fanning the embers of discord in the society via Tik Tok.

Murja, who was arraigned in court over allegations of abuse, obscenity and social media misconduct, made a promise to stop insults on social media.

When answering the questions about her activities on Social Media which are condemned by the people, Murja said, “Every sane person knows when he does something wrong.” But on allegations of her misbehaving on social media, she said, “First of all, I don’t sing, let alone to say that children can listen to my music to ruin their morals.”

She added, “I am not a woman who uploads obscene songs. Honestly, I didn’t know that the song ‘Cas’ by Ado Gwanja was against the law because the way I saw people using the song (on Tiktok) made me join the song.” Murja went on to say that she first came across Ado Gwanja’s song ‘War’ on social media and that thousands of people had posted the song before her.
