- Reactions have continued to trail as worshippers of Adoration Ministry protest against the removal of Fr. Mbaka
- Fr. Mbaka was transferred from the ministry to a Monastery
The removal of Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka as the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministries, Enugu, Nigeria, AMEN, has resulted in attacks and confusion in the church.
Gistlover news reported earlier that Fr. Mbaka was transferred to a monastery to continue with the remaining disciplinary exercises placed on him for interfacing in political matters.
Fr Mbaka announced the bishop’s directives during the Sunday Mass as he noted that he would proceed to the monastery. This, however, angered his supporters as they began chanting “we say no”. While protesting with green leaves, they nearly lynched Fr. Amadi who was present during the Mass.
The ministry which was shut down three months ago reopened on Sunday, 2nd October but under the spiritual leadership of Rev Fr. Anthony Amadi and other priests.
Netizens reacted to the news of the attack on Fr. Amadi as they concluded that supporters worship Fr. Mbaka, not God. See comments below,
