The court issued the order on Tuesday last week after lawyers filed a lawsuit, calling for their prosecution for singing and dancing to "immoral" songs and sharing them
online, Baba-Jibo Ibrahim, a judicial spokesman said.

The accused celebrities, four men and six women,
include a popular hip-hop singer, a famous film actress and eight TikTok influencers
with huge followings.

The order highlights strict measures often employed by authorities in Nigeria's Muslim-majority north to regulate social media content and force users to conform to
