Workers in Adoration Ministry, Enugu, and members of the ministry are currently protesting at Holy Ghost Cathedral, Enugu, over the alleged abduction of Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka, who is in charge of the ministry.
Jungle Journalist Media Ltd correspondent in Enugu gathered that the fiery Reverend Father was last seen on Tuesday, 4th May, 2021, when he went to honour an invitation from the Bishop of Enugu Catholic Diocese, Callistus Valentine Onaga.
A visit to the Adoration grounds in the outskirts of Emene Enugu showed that the place was deserted, and members were seen moving in disarray. The weekly prayer session that usually held every Wednesday was not on.
In an earlier statement, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, said that the Catholic father’s whereabouts is unknown.
Mbaka had criticised the government of President Muhammadu Buhari over insecurity, asking the president to resign for inefficiency.
According to Mazi Okwu Nnabuike of the OYC, “We have it on good authority that his aides have neither seen nor heard from him since Tuesday.
“Calls put to his mobile line have also remained unanswered; this has now prompted us to issue this alarm as we would not take it lightly should anything untoward happen to him.
“We are giving the Federal Government 48 hours to produce the priest, else they should be ready to face Igbo youths. They were dining and wining with him all along and now that he told the truth, they are no longer comfortable with him.
“Let nothing happen to Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka. It will not be in anybody’s interest,” the group warned.
