In other news, popular Nollywood actress, Rahama Sadau has responded to a Muslim Twitter user who asked for an explanation as to why she wore a leg chain.

It’s common knowledge that the actress has been a subject of public scrutiny by Muslim folks on social media ever since she was reportedly arrested in 2020 over some “revealing” pictures she posted on social media.

Well, a Muslim Twitter user took to the platform on Sunday, June 27, to express his seeming displeasure with the actress for wearing a leg chain.

“Can someone help me explain @Rahma_sadau”, the Twitter user captioned a picture of the actress.

In response, Rahama who has been repeatedly criticized over her mode of dressing, said the chain is an expensive original gold.

She wrote, “Hello Anonymous, that’s an expensive REAL GOLD hope that answers your question.”
