Nigerian police have arrested the Kano-based singer SK, whose real name is Sanusi Abdullahi.

He is due in court on Wednesday, accused of being in a video that went viral, which allegedly shows a singer criticising Kano Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

But some Kano residents have complained that the video just shows the back and side of a person’s face, which makes it hard to identify them.

The singer’s brother Jamilu Abdullahi has told the BBC that the family are pleading for his release and insists he is innocent.
