Rev Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the spiritual leader of the Ministry of Catholic Worship in the state of Enugu, has recounted what happened when he was invited by the Catholic Bishop of Enugu, Most Reverend Callistus Onaga Mbaka stated that his complaint with Onaga was that the bishop did not call him one by one, but that he held a meeting in which other participants boasted that they would take care of Mbaka and that “the Adoration has been closed.”
Mbaka added that he had thought that his meeting with the Catholic bishop of Enugu was “a meeting of a father and a son” There was an uproar on Wednesday when the Worship Ministry leader disappeared for approximately 24 hours, fueling protests in Enugu before he later resurfaced and addressed his supporters.
Mbaka was suspended for inciting his congregation to lead a protest and vandalize the residence of the Catholic bishop of Enugu, Most Reverend Callistus Onaga Narrating his ordeal after meeting with his followers Thursday night, Mbaka said: “I never disobeyed the church. People are misquoting me; They are doing everything they can to shut down this ministry, but by the grace of God, they can’t do anything.
“I don’t know what happened in the background and what led to this, but what I understand is that after meeting with a team of consultants, I will not begin to tell them who said this and that, but the bishop asked me to stay on the sidelines. of Adoration on the ground for 30 days and in silence for 30 days.
“The only thing I’m not happy with is that if the bishop wanted it to be a secret, he should have called me personally. Did you know that before arriving at Bishop’s house, the conclusion of the meeting had already been reviewed and I went in there hoping that the meeting would take place?
“Those who were there had already boasted that this is the moment when they would show Mbaka that the Adoration has been closed, that Mbaka will not return here. It was so painful and I didn’t understand it because I thought it was a meeting of a father and a son ”.
Meanwhile, Bishop Onaga has asked all parishes, chaplains and religious houses in the diocese to pray for the atonement and reparation of the violet protesters, who destroyed the bishop’s court and parts of the cathedral of the Diocese of the Holy Spirit in Ogui Enugu, on Wednesday.
The protesters were alleged followers of Mbaka, who unleashed violence in Catholic structures while searching for his leader, who was allegedly detained by the Diocese at the request of Bishop Onaga’s summons on Tuesday.
