The controversy caused by the Kannywood actress, Rahma Sadau’s posting of a racy picture of herself on social media, continues to deepen as the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the Kaduna State Commissioner of Police, Umar Muri, to investigate her.
Recall that, earlier in the week, the beautiful actress posted a photo of herself on social media wearing a backless dress, and not covering her hair was considered a contravention of Islamic canons.
That singular act of hers has stirred up controversies, criticisms, support, condemnation, and a heated debate on social media.
Sadau has since been banned by the northern movie industry, Kannywood.
Many northern Islamic elements had criticised the actress and threatened to attack her while others lampooned them for being too strict on conventional matters.
The actress subsequently deleted the picture and apologised to her fans that are mainly from northern Nigeria but many blamed her for attracting negative comments towards Islam.
As a result of this, one Mallam Lawal Gusua, wrote a petition to the Inspector General Of Police, to investigate Rahma Sadau’s, unIslamic behaviour.
In a letter signed by the Principal Staff Officer to the IG, Idowu Owohunwa, the CP of Kaduna State was ordered to look into the matter, which he has promptly granted.
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.”
About 12 states in northern Nigeria practice Sharia law which prohibits women from dressing in a manner that is deemed indecent.
