The Northern filmmakers under the aegis of Motion Picture Practitioners Association of Nigeria (MOPPAN) have suspended Kannywood actress, Rahama Sadau over photos of her wearing a backless dress.
Rahama had received a lot of backlash from Arewa Twitter on Monday, November 2, after she shared the photos because they termed the dress unIslamic and according to them should never be worn by a public figure like her.
The actress had been suspended for a similar misconduct in 2016, but the Kano State Censors Board under Mallam Ismail Na Abba Afakkallah granted her unconditional pardon in 2018.
Vanguard reports that the Northern filmmakers released a statement saying that the post by the actress had resulted in blasphemous comments against the Holy Prophet of Islam on Twitter and other social media handles.
The actress then released a statement via her Twitter handle condemning the attack on her religion, Islam, and Prophet Mohammed.
