Enugu Catholic Diocese were behind my two days ordeal - Mbaka

Charismatic Enugu priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has disclosed that the authorities of the Enugu Catholic Diocese were behind his two days ordeal.


It was earlier reported that there was heavy protest in Enugu on Wednesday over the reported missing of the Catholic Cleric.


Mbaka, who addressed his parishioners at the Adoration ground in Umuchigbo Nike, Enugu, said he was summoned by the Bishop from where he was kept incommunicado.

He said the plan was to keep him for 30 days.


He said a lot of issues were presented against him after which the Church leadership, led by Bishop Calistus Onaga told him that he would remain indoors for one month, a period that would allow him pray and meditate over his activities.



The priest said he requested to be allowed the opportunity to come and address his parishioners after which he would shut down, “but they said No. I also begged them to allow me send another priest to come and celebrate mass for you today, they said No.”


He said Bishop Onaga upon seeing the protest over his predicament allowed him to go.


Mbaka said one of things presented against him was that he blessed Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.


“Are you the owner of my mouth? You can’t tell me who to bless? If you are not happy that I blessed someone, you have your own mouth, you can curse the person,” he declared.


“They didn’t treat me in a pastoral way and I was asking am I being punished for what?


“They said it was a meeting, but even before I reached the Bishop’s house, conclusion has already been made. What happened to me was like the day I was shot on the road.


“Unfortunately for them, even before the meeting, a woman was already going around bragging that the Bishop will call me for a meeting, and that I was going to leave my house here for 30 days, and that after the 30 days, I would be sent to Rome, and Adoration ministry will be closed.



“In a time and cases like this, don’t give me a punishment that will cause troubles for us because I’m not alone,” he said.


Mbaka said that another thing presented to him was his recent criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Government.


“I cannot hate my brother because of some people who hatred is in their genes,” Mbaka said.
