On 12 July, Justice Bashir Sukola remanded Mr Binniyat in custody for writing a story about an attack by armed Fulani herdsmen in southern Kaduna that later proved incorrect. Mr Binniyat’s case highlights an erosion of press freedom and the inequality before the law of different religious communities in Kaduna State.
