The Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu, Ejike Mbaka, has disclosed that the authorities of the Enugu Catholic Diocese were behind his disappearance.
Mbaka stated this while addressing his parishioners at the Adoration ground in Umuchigbo Nike, Enugu.
The clergyman said he was summoned by the Bishop from where he was kept incommunicado, adding that the plan was to keep him for 30 days.
According to him, 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.
He further disclosed that 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 explained that he was allowed to leave after Bishop Onaga saw the protest over his predicament.
Revealing details of the meeting, 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.
Gistlover previously reported that the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, declared Mbaka missing, stating that the cleric hasn’t been seen since Tuesday.
The President-General of OYC, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, said every effort to trace him had failed.
Mbaka, however, returned in a vehicle a few minutes past 2 pm after his whereabouts caused confusion in Enugu with his supporters seen shouting ‘Father Mbaka, Oh! You are home!”
