Human rights activist, Omoyele Sowore, has taken to social media to call for the release of Kayanmata seller, Hauwa Muhammed popularly known as Jaruma.
News broke out recently that Jaruma was arrested over a post she made about billionaire businessman, Ned Nwoko, on her social media.
It was gathered that Nwoko wrote a petition against the aphrodisiac seller accusing her of publishing false stories about him and his wife, Regina Daniels.
Following her arrest, she was arraigned before Abuja Upper Area Court on charges bordering on defamation of character, false news publication and intimidation.
She has however been remanded in the Suleja correctional center pending the bail hearing slated for Friday, January 28. The judge also adjourned the case till February 23, 2021, for trial.
Reacting to the saga, Sowore took to his Instagram page to slam Nwoko for allegedly causing damage to innocent citizens in his community with the aid of the police.
He also claimed Jaruma is his latest victim and demanded that she be released from police custody.
“#FreeJaruma: It is disheartening that Nigeria Police Force continues to deploy itself to despicable VIP mercenary activities. This so-called Billionairë, Ned Nwoko has done so much damage to lots of innocent citizens in his community with the aid of the Nigerian police. Jaruma is his latest victim. This culture cannot stand! Defamation is a civil matter! Let @jaruma_empire go!
