A Sharia’h court in Kano has convicted the Kannywood Actress, Sadiya Haruna, of moral indecency.
The conviction followed the arrest of the social media blogger by the Kano State Hisbah Board, who accused the former of “uploading sexual contents on her social media handles”.
Sadiya Haruna, a resident of Kabuga Quarters was initially arrested on Friday by the Head of Surveillance Department of Kano State Hisbah Board, Malam Aliyu Usman.
She was then detained in the custody of the Islamic police until early Monday when she was brought before the Sharia court sitting in Sharada area of the state.
According to the First Information Report (FIR) filed against her, she was alleged to have consistently posted indecent videos in which she was dancing seductively and making sexual comments on her social media handles and YouTube channel.
Sadiya Haruna pleaded guilty to a one-count charge of obscenity and indecent act, which contradicts section 355 of Penal Code Law 2000.
The presiding judge, Justice Ali Jibril Danzaki, thereafter convicted her and ordered her to be attending a Darul Hadith Islamiyya session at Tudun Yola Quarters for a period of six months, as the sentencing for her offence.
The judge added that her Islamiyya attendance will be monitored by the school head teacher and the Hisbah command.
