Ohanaeze warns over the consequences of Mbaka’s absence
The one-month suspension placed on the Charismatic Enugu priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has attracted the attention of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council, OYC,.
At the moment, the Mbaka’s Adoration Ministry, Enugu Nigeria, AMEN, is currently under lock and key as he served the 30 days ban placed on him by the Catholic Bishop of Enugu Diocese, Bishop Calistus Onaga.
In a statement obtained on Thursday, OYC said the current ordeal of Fr. Mbaka could work against the entrenched peace in the Coal City State.
The President-General of OYC, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, said in the statement that recent happenings around the priest have vindicated its warnings.
According to him, “When we raised the alarm that Fr. Mbaka was missing, many people dismissed it, but it turned out to be true. We had also made it public that identified persons were after Fr. Mbaka and the target are the Ministry’s assets. This has also come to be exposed with all we are seeing now on social media, involving one Princess from Abia State.
“It has become imperative that we again caution all the actors in this saga to leave Fr. Mbaka alone. The Priest does not just belong to the Catholic Church but millions of people who benefit from his spiritual and charity works.
“We have it on record that over 30,000 Nigerians are currently benefiting from Fr. Mbaka’s charity, even as those who benefit from the spiritual work at the Adoration ground are at their countless millions.
“This is not a man to be treated in this manner. We have enough issues already to contend with and more should not be added. Enugu State is known as the most peaceful State in Nigeria and few individuals with selfish interests should not be allowed to truncate that peace.
“Should the angry youths be forced to troop to the streets in protest, no one knows the extent it can go. The ENDSARS saga should not be forgotten in a hurry.”
“We are, therefore, calling on the Bishop to let go of Mbaka and allow him continue with his ministry; this is the only thing that will assuage the angry feelings of the youths.
“So many Catholic priests were killed in Enugu State and beyond but Bishop Onaga has never called for an atonement prayer. It’s disheartening to see Bishop Onaga call for prayer because a Hotel at the Bishop’s court was tampered with while the people were searching for their father, having gotten the link that the Bishop’s Court was his last point of call.
“We urge the Bishop to stop acting on the script of Princess and her cohorts. All of them should know that he who lives in a glass house should not throw stones,” he cautioned.
