KanyiDaily recalls that on January 25, Jaruma was arraigned on a four-count charge of defamation of character, injurious falsehood, criminal intimidation, and publication of false news with intent to cause offence against the public peace.

She was arraigned following a petition by businessman tycoon, Ned Nwoko, who accused her of publishing falsehoods on her Instagram page against him and his wife, Regina Daniels.

The judge, Justice Ismailia Abdullahi had ruled that Jaruma should be remanded at the Suleja Correctional Centre, but she regained freedom on January 28 after meeting her bail conditions.

Justice Abdullahi also cautioned the parties in the case to maintain decorum and avoid making public comments on social media that could be considered prejudicial to the case.
