Popular Catholic Cleric and Overseer of Adoration Ministries, Enugu, Reverend Father Ejike Camillus Mbaka has revealed that he was detained by the Catholic Bishop of Enugu state, Most Rev. Callistus Onaga. Fr Mbaka accused Bishop Onaga of conniving with some disgruntled elements to detain him because he spoke well of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
Speaking on Wednesday evening at Adoration grounds, Fr Mbaka stated that he was kept indoors by the Bishop who planned to keep him lockup for 30 days. He revealed that he was accused of several things after which Bishop Onaga ordered that he will be kept indoors for 30 days for him to pray and meditate over his activities.
It will be recall that Fr Mbaka has been in hot water recently over his criticisms of President Muhammadu Buhari administration over his poor handling of the nation and the rate of insecurity problems in the country. The Presidency replied Fr Mbaka, accusing him of being unhappy over President Buhari refusal to give him lucrative contracts.
He disclosed that Bishop Onaga proceeded to release him after seeing massive protests from mostly his Adoration members who break out all over the state capital to protest for his release. He said the Catholic Church was strongly against him for praising Nnamdi Kanu.
According to his words; “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. Why didn’t you treat me in a pastoral way and I keep asking myself, what am I being punished for?”
“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 and saying that the Bishop will call me for a meeting, and that I was going to leave my house for 30 days, and after the 30 days, I will be sent to Rome in Italy to continue my pastoral work there, and Adoration ministry will be closed forever.”
“In a time and cases like this, don’t give me a punishment that will cause troubles for us because I am not alone. I cannot hate my brother because of some people who love to hate and whom hatred is in their genes,” Mbaka stated.
