An Upper Area Court in Zuba, Abuja has revoked the bail granted popular ‘kayanmata’ seller, Hauwa Saidu aka Jaruma.

The presiding judge, Ismail Abdullahi Jibrin, revoked the bail and ordered for her re-arrest following the failure of Jaruma and her counsel to appear in court.

Abdullahi ordered that the aphrodisiac merchant be remanded at the Suleja Correctional Centre until March 17, 2022 when the case comes up again.

The judge became furious after Jaruma and her lawyer failed to show up and didn’t send any representative.

A lawyer, who described himself as a friend of the court, appealed to the judge to give them more time in a bid of fairness to all parties.

Accepting the lawyer’s plea, the court gave the defendant and her counsel two more hours to appear or send a representative before giving his ruling

Yet nobody showed even after the two-hour grace period elapsed.

Seeing the play out of events, the prosecution lawyer, Inegbinoise Edwin appealed to the court to revoke her bail, since she jumped bail and refused to appear in court.

As a result, the judged became infuriated and explained the act was a mockery to the court and Judiciary noting it will be erroneous for the court not to take action on such.

“I hereby issue Bench warrant against one Hauwa Saidu Mohammed also known as Jaruma, I order the surety to show cause and explain to us why she refused to appear in court”

“This case is adjourned to March 17, 2022”, said the judge.

Jaruma was arrested on January 12 after Ned Nwoko complained she alleged that Regina used her products to ‘grab’ Ned Nwoko, a claim the latter refuted.

She was remanded in prison custody following a petition by Regina Daniel and her billionaire husband, Ned Nwoko.

According to reports, Jaruma was remanded at the Suleja Correctional Centre by an Abuja Upper Area Court after she was arraigned by the police for alleged false news publication, intimidation and defamation of character.

BBNaija Shine Ya Eye housemate, KayVee’s family has reacted to allegations by some housemates that their son is mentally unstable.

Viewers of the reality show had called the attention of the organisers to monitor the misbehaviour of KayVee.

Similarly, some housemates have also appealed to Biggie to examine the photographer.

Whitemoney, JMK, Cross feel KayVee might be suffering from depression, hence needs psychological evaluation.

Responding to the issue, KayVee’s family disputed the allegations.

In a letter posted on the official Instagram page of their son, the family said they will never allow him to go into the competition if he had a mental health issue.

“The KayVee we know isn’t what people are painting him to be. His friends and family will never allow him to go into the house if he had a mental health issue. KayVee is big on mental health and positive vibes, and you could see that from when he entered the house.

“What is happening in the house is simply a reaction to him being unwelcomed. He was full of life when he got into the house, and something has triggered this phase. This has caused him to withdraw into his shell to rebuild his energy and vibe.

“Have you met #KayVee? If 20 people are in a room and down spirited, he’s always there to uplift them. We could see how he played this role for his fellow housemate, Angel. He is a kind person, and that’s one of the qualities that makes us super supportive of him.

“KayVee is passionate about his craft, and that’s why he is on the #BBNaija show to promote himself and work. He has worked with several celebrities and individuals. He’s a focused and hardworking person whose life and work ethics inspire his friends and family. Over the years, he has tirelessly built his brand “KOKO’S VIEW”, which provides top-notch photography and cinematography to clients.

“He doesn’t speak bad English. Guys, he felt unwelcomed and overthinks his point before speaking, so it sometimes comes across as incoherent. Isn’t it human nature to overthink? Let’ be humane.

“When we say, “you don’t know what people are going through”, this is the kind of situation where we should be reminded to be kind to each other and remain supportive. Fewer words, more action. Please keep supporting #KayVee as he needs us now more than ever.”
