The two associations made the demand during a courtesy visit to the NUJ Secretariat in commemoration of this year’s World Press Freedom Day.

Reports say that Bala, who was until his arrest, President of Humanist Association of Nigeria (HAN) was arrested at his residence by security operatives in Kaduna state in the year 2020.

Bala  was reportedly  picked up by security operatives in Kaduna.
