Kano, Nigeria – Two TikTok stars in Kano state who mocked a government official have been sentenced to 20 strokes of cane under Sharia law.

According to reports, Mubarak Isa Muhammed and Muhammed Bula allegedly insulted Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of the northern state of Kano in a video clip.

Their video, in which they mocked Mr. Ganduje for alleged land grabbing, corruption, and sleeping on the job, was posted last week.

They posted the clip on TikTok and Facebook and Muhammad, who is known as Unique Pikin online, was arrested along with Mr. Bula.

Their action was ‘capable of disturbing public peace’ according to prosecution lawyer Wada Ahmed Wada, who said they had defamed the governor.

Both men pleaded guilty and asked the judge for leniency. However, the judge ordered them to be given 20 lashes each, pay a fine of 10,000 naira (£20) and clean the court for 30 days.

They also had to apologise to Mr. Ganduje on social media for their actions.

In Kano state, only Muslims are sentenced in Sharia court. But it is a state, among 12 others, which practices Sharia law among secular laws, as it is a Muslim-majority area.
