Why popular TikToker, Murja Ibrahim Kunya, was arrested




The Police in Kano State have arrested a popular TikToker, Murja Ibrahim Kunya, on allegations of abuse, obscenity and social media misconduct.


Kunya was arrested while trying to book hotel rooms for her guests who came from far distances for her birthday party.

In September last year, a Sharia court had written to the Kano State Commissioner of Police to arrest and investigate Miss Murja Ibrahim Kunya, alongside other 9 Tik Tokers for corrupting the morals of the society.

The 9 other Tik Tokers included in the letter are: Mr 442, Safara’u, Dan Maraya, Amude Booth, Kawu Dan Sarki, Ado Gwanja, Ummi Shakira, Samha Inuwa and Babiana.


Kunya, who is about to be charged in court over allegations of abuse, obscenity and social media misconduct, made a promise to stop insults on social media.

However, she gave reasons as to why she rains insults in the video she posts on social media.

When questioned about her activities on Social Media, Kunya said, “Every sane person knows when he does something wrong.” But on allegations of her misbehaving on social media, she said, “First of all, I don’t sing, let alone to say that children can listen to my music to ruin their morals.”


She added, “I am not a woman who uploads obscene songs. Honestly, I didn’t know that the song ‘Cas’ by Ado Gwanja was against the law because the way I saw people using the song on Tiktok made me join the song.” Kunya went on to say that she first came across Ado Gwanja’s song ‘War’ on social media and that thousands of people had posted the song before her.


Meanwhile, the commissioner of police, CP Mamman Dauda, ordered that the suspect undergo psychiatric evaluation.
