Luka Binniyat, a journalist and human rights activist from southern Kaduna State in Nigeria, has been jailed since 4 November for his reporting on Fulani violence against Christians in the state. His detention has caused an outcry from defenders of freedom of the press across Nigeria and beyond.
Christian Solidarity International (CSI) has appealed to Amnesty International to join in calling the Nigerian authorities to free detained Nigerian journalist and human rights activist Luka Binniyat.
Binniyat was jailed in November after reporting on Fulani militia attacks against Christian communities in Kaduna State.
The Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU), has called on the Kaduna State government to immediately and unconditionally release detained journalist and human rights activist Luka Binniyat. The call came at a protest march which took place at the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) council headquarters in Abuja, the Nigerian capital, on Saturday 18 December 2021.
