Kano TikTok skit makers who defamed Governor Ganduje will receive 40 lashes in public, sweep court premises and wash toilets

The Kano State Magistrate Court moderatd by Aminu Muhammad Gabari has ordered ordered 40 lashes in public be administered on two skit makers, Mubarak Isa Muhammad  and Nazifi Muhammad Bala for defaming the character of the state’s Governor on their Tiktok accounts.

They were also ordered to  sweep and wash the toilets of Nomansland Magistrates Court premises for 30 days.

“They will receive 20 lashes each, to be administered in the public. They should also sweep and wash the toilets of Justice Aloma Mukthar Court Complex in No-man’s-land,” the judge ruled.

The convicts had pleaded guilty to a two-count charge of defamation and inciting public disturbance slammed against them.

This roller coaster incident started when the two tiktoker made a video syaing that Governor Ganjude do not bat an eyelid over any piece of land in Kano and also sleeps a lot.

 

Due to this video, prosecutor, Barrister Wada Ahmad Wada and Principal State Counsel, Kano State Ministry of Justice applied for a summary trial against the duo.

When the case resumed on Monday November 7, for judgement,

Magistrate Gabari ordered the convicts to pay a fine of N10,000

each for defaming the character of Kano State Governor.

Magistrate Gabari also ordered them to pay another fine of

N10,000 each for inciting public disturbance. He then similarly

administered non-custodial terms against the convicts.

Consequently, he ordered the convicts to make a video on social

media tendering an apology to Ganduje. The skit makers were

taken to court after they were captured in a viral TikTok video calling out Ganduje.

In the video, they referred to Ganduje as a “corrupt politician” who sold every available plot of land in the state.
