Kano TikToker, Murja Kunya, applies for bail

Popular Kano TikToker, Murja Ibrahim Kunya, has approached the Federal High Court in Kano for bail.

An upper shariah court had remanded her and ordered a mental evaluation on her.

Justice Nasiru Saminu had declined her bail application in a fundamental rights enforcement suit she instituted.

But Kunya’s counsel, Barrister Yusuf Ali Faragai, applied for her bail at the Federal High Court, arguing that the alleged offence was bailable.

The counsel requested to know her whereabouts from the defendants to be able to assess her well-being, demanding that the prosecution should bring her before the court.

Joined as defendants in the suit are Kano Attorney General, Kano Hisbah Board and Kano State Shari’ah Court, Kwana Hudu.

The defence counsel, Barrister H. H Suleiman, however, raised objection to the application.

He argued that the suit was an abuse of court process having filed the same application before a state high court.

Justice Abdullahi M Liman adjourned the case to March 28, 2024 for ruling.
