Kano State Hisbah Board has arrested popular TikToker, Murja Ibrahim Kunya, over alleged immorality.

Recall that police arrested Kunya last January while she was trying to book hotel rooms for guests who came from far and near to attend her birthday party.

The spokesperson of the command, SP Abdullahi Kiyawa said the arrest followed complaints from clerics that she ”uses vulgar language and corrupts the morals of the society in her videos.”

In November 2023, the Kano Hisbah announced plans to facilitate marriages for TikTokers in the state, including Kunya.

Aliyu Usman, chairman, Operation ‘Kai da badala’ who doubles as the Officer-in-charge of Surveillance, confirmed the latest arrest to Daily Trust on Tuesday, February 13, 2024.

“She was arrested yesterday (Monday) late evening at her residence located at Tinshama area. We spent about three hours waiting for her before she finally showed up and we picked her up,” he said.

“She is being charged with immoral acts which she is widely known for. There is someone who every day comes around to pick her around 10pm and will return her by 12 midnight or 1am,”

He added that Kunya will be arraigned before a Shari’ah Court sitting at PRP on Tuesday.

Covid cases surge across UK as new variant takes hold – but men are more susceptible than women

The newest strain of coronavirus is running wild across the UK, but new data shows that men are more likely to get it than woman.

Despite largely being removed from the every day lives of most Brits, Covid-19 is still around and cases have shot up a lot in recent weeks thanks to a series of new strains. The KP. 3 variant, part of a new group of variants known as FLiRT, emerged in early April.

The name of these variants was inspired by the mutations in their genetic code and they are an offshoot from JN.1 – a variant that could transmit efficiently through one or two additional mutations.

As of April 2024, three strains of the FLiRT variant have been responsible for 40% of all Covid cases in the UK, namely KP.1.1, KP.3 and KP.2, as per data from the UK Health Security Agency. KP. 2 is believed to have sparked a surge of infections in May before handing over to KP.3, which has almost doubled UK infections to 44% in less than a fortnight.

Meanwhile, KP.2’s share has dropped to 22%, yet hospital admissions increased by 24% in the week leading up to Sunday, rising from 2.67 people per 100,000 to 3.31 per 100,000, according to fresh figures from the UKHSA.
