These are not the best of times for Catholic Priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka.
The controversial man of God has been ordered to shut down his Adoration Ministry for a period of one month.
On Tuesday, May 11th, 2021 he sent out a message that read:
“Our Spiritual Director, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka wishes to inform his beloved adorers that he has embarked on a private prayer retreat that will end on 10th June 2021.”
“Consequently, no ministry activities shall be held in the ministry ground pending his return.”
“He directs that members of the ministry are to observe this period of his retreat as they used to do during the usual January breaks of the ministry, by praying at their homes, being charitable and fasting according to their ability. Adoration! Holy Spirit is our Power.”
It is interesting to know that Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has been on bended knees begging the Catholic Church over his recent actions.
He said; “There was a lot of mixed information. The devil entered the story; the church did not kidnap me.”
“Who am I? How can somebody who has been serving the church for 25 years come out to begin to fight the same church. I don’t have any problem with my bishop.”
“I wish to apologise to whoever misunderstood my statement. I did not clap for anybody for destroying anything.”
“I heard that the search for Father Mbaka was hijacked; people joined and started breaking things. Those that carried out that destruction are not members of the Catholic Church.”
For those who don’t know, Mbaka’s loyalists attacked Bishop Callistus Onaga’s home last week after speculations that Mbaka had disappeared/was arrested.
Mbaka’s supporters walked from the Adoration ground in Emene, to the Bishop’s Court at Igboeze Street, Independence Layout, where they destroyed parts of the building.
They damaged the Cathedral Church, desecrated the Holy altar of sacrifice, the diocesan Bishop’s residence, the cathedral Parish house and the secretariat complex.
