Court Orders Jaruma’s Rearrest Over Her Absence

The presiding judge, Ismail Abdullahi Jubril in his ruling stated that the charges filed against Jaruma are bailable.

The court called on the parties involved in the case to maintain decorum and avoid making public comments on social media that would be sub judice.

Jaruma, at the resumption of the case on Wednesday, was absent in the court, with her lawyer, Kayode Ajulo was also absent.

The lawyer when contacted by the court on why Jaruma was not present in court, said he had withdrawn from the case.

The development saw the judge stand down the matter, giving Jaruma the benefit of doubt that she could still make it to court before the close of work.

The judge after waiting for three hours issued a bench warrant and ordered her arrest and detention until the next adjourned date.

The judge said her absence in court without reason was an affront and a mockery of the court and judicial process and there was a need for the court to take action.

He also ordered her surety to be present in court on the next adjourned date.

The prosecution lawyer, Inegbinoise Edwin had earlier stated that Jaruma violated the term of her bail.

According to Edwin, Jaruma has been making comments about the case on social media, contrary to the order of the court.

The judge adjourned the case to March 17, 2022, for hearing.

Jaruma was earlier arrested after she claimed that popular Nollywood actress, Regina Daniels used her product to charm her husband, Ned Nwoko.
