President of the Humanist Association of Nigeria, Mubarak Bala, has been arrested for 'insulting Prophet Muhammad' on Facebook. Bala was arrested by men of the Nigerian Police in Kaduna for blasphemy.

His arrest followed a petition by a group of lawyers to the Kano State Police Commissioner to prosecute him for the act.  According to the Petition written and addressed to the Commissioner of Police Kano State , Bala wrote on facebook, that "There is no difference between Prophet T.B Joshua of Lagos and Prophet Muhammad of Saudi Arabia, our own from Nigeria is even better in that he was not a terrorists". 

In July 2014, Mubarak Bala, a then 29-year-old chemical process engineer, was released from a psychiatric unit to which his Muslim family committed him by force after he abandoned Islam.. 

"People are threatening me, I mean life-threatening threats," he had told Guardian UK at the time.

Bala said that since he renounced Islam and declared himself an atheist, he has not only lost the trust of his father and elder brother, but many friends.

"Most of my friends condemn me and tell me I am bound for hell and that in an Islamic state, I would be killed. Blasphemy is a serious thing here," said Bala.
