Businesswoman Hauwa Muhammed, better known as Jaruma, has been remanded in prison custody following a petition by billionaire businessman Ned Nwoye and his wife, actress Regina Daniels.
Jaruma was remanded at the Suleja Correctional Centre by an Abuja Upper Area Court after she was arraigned by the police for alleged false news publication, int!midation and defamation of character.
She pleaded not guilty and her lawyer made an oral application for bail. The Area court judge, Ismailia Abdullahi, adjourned until Friday, January 28, for the ruling. He also fixed February 23 for trial.
Recall that Jaruma was arrested on January 21 allegedly on the orders of Ned Nwoko after she alleged that Regina used her products to ‘grab’ Ned Nwoko which was refuted by the latter.
