Mbaka: Cleric seeks Ugwuanyi, others intervention to stop harassment

Published by The Nation on Tue, 08 Jun 2021


By Damian Duruiheoma, EnuguA cleric and former chairman of Nkanu East Local Government Area of Enugu State, Pastor Sam Iyiogwe has called on Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu state and other Igbo leaders to intervene and halt the current harassment of the spiritual director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka.This is just as Igbo youths operating under the aegis of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council (OYC) has vowed to resist any further onslaught on the Catholic priest.Mbaka had been on the receiving end since he condemned the current state of insecurity, deprivation, and hunger in the country.He was immediately visited with heavy sanctions by Bishop Callistus Onaga of the Enugu Catholic Diocese who banned him from commenting on issues relating to politics.Mbaka was also said to have last Sunday disclosed at adoration ground that he had been invited by the DSS for questioning.Reacting to Mbakas recent travails, Pastor Iyiogwe warned that nothing can stop the voice of the man operating under the anointing of the Holy Spirit.He called on Governor Ugwuanyi and southeast leaders, the Catholic church and the entire leadership of the church in Nigeria to rise up to ensure that Fr. Mbaka was not harassed any further.Fr. Mbaka is speaking out the evil in our nation which many church leaders and senior citizens have failed to speak because of fear of persecution.Nigerians are dying of hunger! People are being killed here and there even in their homes, villages, farmlands and on the roads. Businesses are closing up in all parts of Nigeria. Our Naira is valueless.READ ALSO:Father Mbaka holds First Adoration Service SundayWe the political and church leaders have failed our nation Nigeria and God. Its only the truth, which we are fighting against, that will save Nigeria from her many terrible troubles which are manmade.No one should dictate the words of the prophet even the prophet himself cannot.If he speaks lies and falsehood, its for him and God to judge. We should do everything possible within the law to keep Enugu State peaceful so that our state will continue to move forward in infrastructural provisions.Also, OYC spokesman, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, said the Igbo youths would no longer condone further harassment of the priest.OYC described the invitation of Mbaka to Abuja by the DSS as a plan by the federal government to silence the priest.DSS has no reason to invite Mbaka, the same Mbaka who prophesied the emergence of Buhari and he was not invited by the DSS then but now that hes talking about the state of the nation, the hunger and killings in the land DSS came to invite him.But we warn that any plot against Mbaka must be resisted by Igbo youths, let nothing happen to him or the federal government will have Igbo youths to contend with. The onslaught against a revered priest in Igbo land should stop forthwith, the group said.
