Rahama Sadau:Police probe Northern actress for posting ‘indecent’ picture on Twitter

Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the Kaduna State Commissioner of Police, Umar Muri, to investigate Kannywood actress, Rahma Sadau, for allegedly posting some ‘indecent’ pictures on Twitter.

Sadau had earlier in the week caused a controversy for posting a photo of herself on social media wearing a backless dress and not covering her hair in contravention of Shariah law.

The probe by the police follows a petition written to the IGP by one Mallam Lawal Gusau.

The actress, who has since been banned by the northern movie industry, had on Monday posted the photo which caused a heated debate on social media.

Many northern Islamic elements had criticised the actress and threatened to attack her while others lampooned them for being too strict on conventional matters.

Sadau later deleted the picture and apologised to her fans that are mainly from northern Nigeria but many blamed her for attracting negative comments towards Islam.

In a letter signed by the Principal Staff Officer to the IGP, Idowu Owohunwa, the CP of Kaduna State was ordered to look into the matter.

A copy of the letter, dated November 3, 2020, marked CR:7000/IGP.SEC/ABJ/Vol.508/313, was posted on social media by FIM Magazine.

The letter is titled, ‘Complaint of Causing and Acknowledging Derogatory and Blasphemous Comments Against Prophet Muhammed On Rahma Sadau, Kaduna, Kaduna State and Request for Urgent Intervention’.

It reads in part, “I am to convey the directive of the Inspector General of Police that you treat proactively with a view to ensuring that the development does not result in any act that could threaten public peace and security. The Inspector-General of Police further directs that you furnish him with updates accordingly.”
