Activist, Omoyele Sowore has called out Justice for Kayanmata seller, Hauwa Muhammed aka Jaruma after she was arrested by the Police over a post she made against Ned Nwoko and actress Regina Daniels on social media.
It was reported that Ned Nwoko wrote a petition against Jaruma as he accused her of publishing flasehood on her Instagram page against him and his wife, Regina Daniels.
Jaruma was arraigned before an Abuja Upper Area Court on charges centering on defamation of character, false news publication and intimidation. Police Prosecutor, E. A Inegbenoise, told the court that Nwoko had reported the matter through a written petition from his lawyer to the FCT Police Command for proper investigation on January 20, 2021.
While Inegbenoise pleaded with the court to allow Jaruma to remain in police custody pending investigation, her lawyer, James Odibe, who made an oral bail application, urged the court to grant the defendant bail on self-recognition or in the alternative, in the most liberal terms. The presiding judge, Justice Ismailia Abdullahi ordered that Jaruma be remanded in Suleja Correctional Centre pending the bail hearing on Friday, January 28. Abdullahi then adjourned the matter till February 23, 2021, for trial.
Reacting to this, Sowore took to his Instagram page to ask for Justice for Jaruma.
In his words;
‘‘#FreeJaruma: It is disheartening that Nigeria Police Force continues to deploy itself to despicable VIP mercenary activities. This so-called Billionairë, Ned Nwoko has done so much damage to lots of innocent citizens in his community with the aid of the Nigerian police. Jaruma is his latest victim. This culture cannot stand! Defamation is a civil matter! Let @jaruma_empire go!
