 Sir Jarus

Popular X influencer, Suraj Oyewale aka Sir Jarus, has disclosed that the case filed against him in court by the Lagos State government through the Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency (DSVA), after it was alleged that he beat his wife has been struck out.
In a post shared on his X handle, Suraj confirmed he was indeed arraigned in court but that the case was struck out with conditions that he goes for counselling and use his platform to speak against Domestic violence.

He also mentioned that the court ordered he stayed away from social media for one month.

Last week, Sir Jarus admitted on X (formerly Twitter) that he beat his first wife, Mrs Oyewale Ayoola because she tried to stop him from taking a second wife by getting help from a “Cele Prophet” who gave her “juju”.

His post sparked widespread outrage, with the DSVA later putting out a statement announcing Sir Jarus had been arrested and currently in police custody.

On Thursday, July 4, the agency announced in a statement shared on its X added that the influencer had been charged to court on two counts bordering on assault and conduct likely to cause a breach of peace.

Addressing his court case, Sir Jarus wrote;

‘’Re: Domestic Violence

On Monday, I got a call from the Lagos State Police Command inviting me to appear before them.

Yesterday, I reported at the office to make statement in respect of some allegations and answer questions.

Today, I also walked into the office and was subsequently charged to court. Fortunately, the matter was struck out by the court with conditions that I go for counseling, use my platform to speak against domestic violence and stay off Twitter for a month.

In compliance, I want to appeal to married people to seek peaceful means of seeking marital disputes. Patience will always solve issues no matter how long it takes.

Also in compliance, I will be logging off Twitter for one month. I will also appreciate if nobody sends me anything from Twitter on other platforms of reaching me. I do not want to see or hear anything from Twitter. Please do not send to me.

Special thanks to the Lagos State Police Command for speedy attention to the matter. Special thanks to the firm of Wahab Shittu SAN, my legal representatives in court and my friend Adam Muhammad for further legal support.

In my 17 years of active participation on social media, I have always used the platforms as a force for good, devoting a generous amount of my Internet time to advising and supporting the ambitions of younger ones, especially on education and career matters, evident in the general feedback about how my free education and career tips have changed the lives of people for life.  

I try to exude positivity and preach the message of hope. Confident that an isolated case of marital challenge will not bring down such brand. This use of social media to mass-mentor and share life-transforming information to younger folks will not stop when I return.

Thank you.
