The controversy surrounding the arrest and trial of Kano-based social media influencer, Murja Kunya, has taken another turn with her mother, Hadizatul Kubra, rejecting what she perceived as inhuman treatment of her daughter at the Federal Neuro Psychiatric Hospital in Kano State.

Murja Kunya, currently in the custody of the Kano State Hisbah Board, a Shari’a enforcement arm of the state government, was ordered by a Shari’a Court to undergo medical evaluation at the government-owned psychiatric hospital before her impending trial.

The controversial female TikToker faces charges of indecency, public nuisance, and promoting prostitution, preferred against her before the Shari’a Court by the Hisbah Board.

Speaking on the development, Murja’s lawyer, A.U. Haji, berated the hospital for allegedly attempting to administer an unidentified substance to his client without informing her about her health status, describing the action as a violation of her human rights.

It was gathered that Murja has been combative and resistant to treatment by healthcare personnel, further complicating her situation.
Lamenting, Murja’s mother, Hadizatul Kubra, expressed displeasure with the alleged maltreatment of her daughter, emphasising that Murja was not mentally ill.

She recounted being urgently summoned to the hospital, where Murja was allegedly crying profusely, and decried the perceived mistreatment of her daughter.
