Popular Nigerian Praise Singer Dragged To Court Over Comments On Buhari

Popular Praise Singer, Rarara Dragged To Court Over Comments On Buhari

A popular praise singer in the North, Dauda Kahutu, also known as Rarara, has been sued over alleged inciteful comments and public disturbance.

Recall that Rarara, during a press conference recently in Abuja, accused former President Muhammadu Buhari of destroying the country before handing it over to President Bola Tinubu.

The praise singer, therefore, expressed regret in supporting the former Nigerian leader.

Following the development, a resident of Maraba town in Nasarawa State, Muhammed Sani Zangina, instituted a court against the singer for inciting the public against Buhari.

In a court affidavit on Monday, the complainant, through his lawyer, Muhammed Barde Abdullahi, said Rarara’s action was capable of breaching public peace, as well as causing disturbance, contrary to Section 114 of the Penal Code.

The case, which was filed in a Nasarawa State magistrates’ court sitting in Lafia, could not, however, be held on Monday, November 13, due to the absence of the defendant.

The court’s bailiff explained that the summons issued by the court could not be served on the defendant.

Barrister Abdullahi, thereafter, applied that a substrate service be effected against the defendant, a request the court granted.

The Magistrate, Maryam Nadabo, adjourned the case to December 4.
