Unchained Vibes Africa joins the Foundation for Religious Freedom in describing the unfortunate ruling of the Appeal Court which upholds the High Court’s decision to remit Yahaya Sharif-Aminu back to the Upper Shariah Court for retrial as disappointing.

Justice Abubakar Lamido delivered the judgment via a Zoom video conference. However, there was a dissenting judgment by Justice Ita Mbaba.
