Popular aphrodisiac seller, Hauwa Muhammed also known as Jaruma, has been remanded in prison custody after attacking billionaire businessman, Ned Nwoko on social media.

Abuja Upper Area Court issued the remand order for Jaruma pending a bail hearing set for Friday.

The defendant was arraigned by the police following a petition by Nwoko to the FCT police command.

Nwoko had accused Jaruma of publishing falsehoods on her Instagram page against him and his wife, Regina Daniels, who is an actress.

He said Kayanmata seller claimed that she paid N10m to Regina to advertise her product but the actress reneged.

She subsequently went on Instagram to insult Nwoko, alleging that he is a victim of her Kayanmata.

The police subsequently arraigned Jaruma for defamation of character, false news publication and intimidation.

The 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.

Inegbenoise pleaded with the court to allow Jaruma to remain in police custody pending investigation.

However, her lawyer, Mr James Odibe, in an oral application for bail, urged the court to grant the defendant bail on self-recognition or in the alternative, in the most liberal terms.

In his ruling, the judge, Ismailia Abdullahi, ruled that the defendant be remanded in Suleja Correctional Centre pending the bail hearing on Friday. He further adjourned the matter till February 23, 2021 for trial.
