Murja Kunya: Kano govt denies involvement in controversial tiktoker’s case

The Kano State Government has denied involvement in the ongoing case of Murja Ibrahim Kunya, a renowned Tik Toker, who is standing trial for allegations of sharing inappropriate video content contrary to provisions of relevant laws in the state.

Ms. Kunya is a supporter of the current administration. 

But the government in a statement by Commissioner for Information Baba Halilu Dantiye, said the allegations on social media are untrue and mischievous. 

“The state government is quite aware of the constitutional provisions for separation of powers and demarcation of responsibilities between the judiciary, legislature, and the executive as the three arms of government and will never do anything or engage in any act that will jeopardize or undermine this noble provision. The government is quite aware that the issue is purely legal and within the purview of the judiciary and will never interfere in any way to influence its fair and just outcome.

“Let it be on record that to the knowledge of the government, the said Murja Kunya was arraigned before an Upper Shari’ah Court at Kwanar Hudu in Nassarawa Local Government area on allegation of sharing vulgar video content on social media platform following which the court ordered her remand in a correctional center and adjourned to Tuesday, 20th February, 2024 after hearing application for her bail. It however came to the attention of the government that there was a fresh allegation against her which necessitated her being taken out for investigation by the security agencies. Her case is still subsisting and will continue up to its final determination by the court. 

“The general public is hereby urged to disregard the mischievous allegation against the state government as nothing but a misguided attempt to tarnish its good image and reputation while assuring the good people of the state that it will continue to respect and uphold the sanctity of the provisions of the constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria,” the statement read.
