Hisbah Board in Kano State have moved against a Kannywood actress identified as Ummah Shehu following her call-out post on her social media handle.
Ummah in reaction to the arrest and subsequent arraignment of her colleague Sadiya Haruna by Hisbah after she uploaded sexual contents on her social media handles, had accused the Islamic police of allegedly “turning a blind eye on its officials while frowning at commoners.”
However in an interview with BBC, commandant of the board, Harun Sani Ibn Sina said the actress must shed light on the allegations she made against Hisbah.
Sina also said that if she fails to submit herself and clarify the grey areas, the board will sue her for slandering.
“We’ve not declared her a wanted person; what we’re saying is that she’ll submit herself to us and clarify the allegations she made against us for the general public to know.
“If what she’s said is factual and accurate, it demands further investigation. But if she fails to convince us, we will sue her for libel.”
