Popular Kayamata merchant, Hauwa Muhammed aka Jaruma, has been remanded in prison custody following a petition by Regina Daniel and her billionaire husband, Ned Nwoko.
Media reports have it that 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, intimidation and defamation of character.
It was further reported that she pleaded not guilty and her lawyer made an oral application for bail.
The Area court judge, Ismailia Abdullahi, adjourned the matter until Friday, January 28 for the ruling while remanding the Kayamata merchant in prison.
Justice Abdullahi also fixed February 23, 2022 for trial resumption.
Jaruma was arrested on January 21, 2022 on the orders of Ned Nwoko after she alleged that Regina used her products to ‘grab’ Ned Nwoko, a claim the latter refuted.
