New Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that in 2014, Bala was arrested and placed in a mental hospital for the “crime” of being an atheist. He was later released, but that didn’t stop the threats on his life.

On Tuesday, April 28, 2020, the Humanist leader was arrested again following a petition by a group of lawyers to the Commissioner of Police in Kano State to prosecute him for insulting Prophet Muhammad on his Facebook page.

The petition signed by one S.S Umar reads:

“We are submitting this complain against one Mubarak Bala of Layin Massalaccin Bilai, Karkasara quarters, Kano.

“The said Mubarak was born and raised as a Muslim but for his own personal reason decided to leave Islam for atheism sometime in 2014 and has since then been writing stuffs on his Facebook page that are provocative and annoying to Muslims.”
