Justice Aisha Mahmud of the Kano State High Court has instructed the police to apprehend well-known Hausa musician, Ado Isa Gwanja.

This ruling upholds a previous decision from the Upper Sharia Court Bichi, which had issued an arrest warrant against the musician last year.

Barrister Badamasi Gandu, representing the Kano Ulamas Forum, initiated legal proceedings against Gwanja and six others at the Upper Sharia Court.

The grounds for this action were centered on the defendants’ activities, perceived to be in defiance of the moral teachings of Islam and the cultural values of Kano State.

In response, Gwanja and his associates swiftly sought a restraining order against their arrest at the state high court. While an interim order was initially granted, preventing the police from executing the arrest pending a hearing for the fundamental rights enforcement application, Justice Aisha Mahmud reversed this decision on Monday.

The court now directs the police to arrest and investigate the musician, further prohibiting Gwanja from performing at public events such as wedding ceremonies until the substantive suit is resolved. Additionally, the court mandates that Gwanja must submit his music to the state film and videos censorship board for approval moving forward.

There are very many Igbo Christians here in Saudi Arabia, especially in the health sector...you can inquire from some of them if they are enjoying the Sharia law in Saudi or not...Sharia law is about equality and justice... sadly in Nigeria, no matter how good a thing is, those that practice/implement it will find a way to pervert it for their selfish use..if Sharia law was practiced in Nigeria, all these problems wouldn't have been...all these politicians stealing and killing would have been hanged...killer bandits and terrorists would have been hanged since ..and the nation's wealth would have reached every single person, not stolen by a few people.

THANK YOU FOR THIS INSIGHT......IN MY OPINION, SHARIA SHOULD NOT BE RUNNING CONCURRENTLY WITH THE JUSTICE ARM OF GOVT. IF I LIVE IN KANO AND SOMEONE DID SOMETHING WRONG TO ME, SHOULD I GO TO THE SHARIA COURT OR THE MAGISTRATE COURT? AND IF SHARIA IS GOOD LIKE YOU HAVE EXPLAINED, WHY WAS IT NOT ADOPTED IN THE COUNTRY AS A WHOLE AND LEAVE PEOPLE WITH CHOICES OF WHERE THEY WANT TO TAKE THEIR CASE TO? wE STILL HAVE CUSTOMARY COURT TOO. CONFUSING TO ME.
