It will be recalled Sadau was suspended in May 2015 for six months by MOPPAN for a squabble she had with popular actor and producer, Adam Zango. She had accused him of demanding sex from her for a role in his movie ‘Duniya Makaranta’.
She later apologised to Adam Zango and in an interview with Pemium Times, she said regretted what she did.
“I was too childish to have reacted that way,” she said.
