Kano-based Muslim singer, Bashir Dandago, arraigned in court for allegedly releasing an inciting song which insult some scholars in the state, have been granted bail.
Dandago was arraigned before a magistrate court in Kano early Tuesday by the state’s Films and Video Censorship Board, after being arrested on Monday.
The board said Dandago did not only release the inciting song which is capable of causing chaos in the state, but also did so without the song being censored by the board.
The prosecuting counsel, Barrister Wada Wada had told the court earlier that the controversial song is full of insults, which according to him may lead to crisis in the state.
The accused pleaded not guilty to the charges, and prayed for the court to grant him bail, to which the presiding judge, Justice Aminu Gabari agreed.
The court then adjourned its session till April 13 to continue hearing the case.
