Aphrodisiac entrepreneur, Hauwa Saidu Jaruma has been remanded in prison over her post about Regina Daniels and her billionaire husband, Ned Nwoko.
The billionaire had filed a petition against Jaruma, accusing her of peddling fake news against him and his wife Regina Daniels on her Instagram page.
The s3x therapist was arraigned before an Abuja high court on charges bordering on defamation of character, false news publication and intimidation.
Police Prosecutor, E. A Inegbenoise, informed the court that Nwoko had written a petition through his lawyer to the FCT command for proper investigation into the matter.
The prosecutor demanded that the court remand the mother of one in police custody while investigation on the matter was being carried out. However, the defendant’s lawyer, Mr James Odibe prayed the court grant her bail on self-recognition or in the alternative, in the most liberal terms.
The judge, Justice Ismailia Abdullahi ordered that the defendant be remanded in Suleja Correctional Centre pending the bail hearing on Friday January 28. He then proceeded to adjourn the case to February 23, 2021 for trial.
