Aphrodisiac Seller Jaruma Has Been Granted Bail.
After spending four days in custody, aphrodisiac seller, Hauwa Saidu Jaruma, popularly called Jaruma, has been granted bail.
Jaruma was charged before an Abuja high court with defamation of character, false news publication, and cyber intimidation of former lawmaker, Ned Nwoko.
The billionaire businessman had accused Jaruma of spreading lies about him and his wife, Regina Daniels, on her Instagram page.
Jaruma was remanded in the Suleja Correctional Centre pending a bail hearing on Friday, according to Justice Ismaila Abdullahi’s judgment on Monday.
The Judge while ruling on her bail application on Friday said her remand should not be seen as a punishment to the defendant.
Abdullahi advised all parties engaged in the case not to do anything that could jeopardize the lawsuit’s outcome.
“The court did not remand her in custody as a punitive means to penalise the defendant but to make her present and answer to her case. By this, I shall be quick to point out that the charge against the defendant is bailable but not ordinary.
“I hereby grant her bail on the following conditions: That the surety must be a level 12 civil servant working within the FCT. Also, all the parties involved in the case should stay from anything that would be prejudicial to the case.”
He did, however, adjourned the case till February 23 for a hearing.
