The Kano State Hisbah Board has arrested a TikToker, Murja Ibrahim Kunya over controversial social media content.
The Public Relations Officer of the board, Lawal Ibrahim confirmed the arrest of Kunya to The PUNCH on Tuesday.
Ibrahim said TikToker was arrested alongside her boyfriend.
He said the arrest followed a series of complaints received from her neighborhood about her controversial postings on social media.
“We have been hunting for Murja Kunya but luckily her boyfriend took her from somewhere and we arrested them,” he said.
It was learnt that the Hisbah board sought to arrest at least six famous Tiktok skit makers for allegedly posting vulgar skit videos on their Tiktok and other social media accounts, an act that the board says contradicts its laws.
The hunt for entertainers comes a few months after the Commander-General of the board, Sheikh Aminu Daurawa invited all female Tiktokers in Kano to a session where the board offered to rehabilitate and empower them with businesses and scholarships.
At the meeting, Sheikh Daurawa admonished all TikTok and other social media entertainers to desist from posting content that is capable of encouraging immorality in society.
