Jaruma paid the sum of 10m Naira to Regina Daniels, the celebrity youngest wife of Prince Ned Nwoko for the contract of influencing her aphrodisiac products on social media. According  to Jaruma, Regina Daniels  breached the contract of influencing her products as she failed to live by the terms of the influencing contract.

Jaruma decided to call out  Regina Daniels on the internet space. Things got sour when the two long known friends started exchanging insults and shades against each other on their Instagram pages for the entertainment pleasure of their millions of fans and followers.

Jaruma decided to also include Regina Daniel’s  husband, Prince Ned Nwoko in the ordeal and also drag Ned’s ex Moroccan wife into the brouhaha and  on numerous occasions said that Ned Nwoko is under spell of her aphrodisiac products.

Ned Nwoko responded by suing her (Jaruma) for defamation and inciting statements against his person. She was arrested and charged to court and has been in prison detention since then.

Her counsel made an application for her bail but the court made an order for her to be remanded in the suleja  prison custody till Friday, the 28th of January, 2022 when the bail application will be heard.

The substantive case was adjourned to 23rd of February, 2022.
