IGP demands probe into Rahama Sadau’s ‘controversial’ photo, to avoid chaos in Kaduna
NEWSMAN, Kaduna – Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu has ordered an investigation into the controversy generated by the photos shared by actress Rahama Sadau, in order to ensure that the controversies generated from the photos does not threaten public peace and security.
Recall that Rahama wore a beige-coloured evening gown which showed off her back while she also left her hair uncovered. Although the actress has apologised for the controversies caused by the photos, it still hasn’t stopped the criticisms from some people.
A man identified as Lawal Gusau had reportedly sent a petition to IGP complaining that if the police did not quickly step into the matter, especially because a blasphemous comment against the holy prophet was made on the actress’ photos, it might degenerate into a serious crisis.
The IGP however, directed the Kaduna State Commissioner of Police, Umar Muri, to investigate the matter.
Rahama was reportedly stopped from leaving the country. The actress was said to be on her way to Dubai with her family but was asked to honour an invitation from the police, Premium Times reported.
However, the northern filmmakers under the aegis of Motion Picture Practitioners Association of Nigeria (MOPPAN) suspended the actress, following the blasphemous comments that Rahama’s photo generated against the holy prophet
