Protests hit Enugu as Father Mbaka goes missing

• Barely few days after Fr Mbaka demanded the impeachment of President Buhari, and warned his spokesperson Garba Shehu following his lies against him, he has been reported missing.

The followers and supporters of popular Catholic priest and man of God Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka who happens to be Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry have staged protest in Enugu, South Eastern Nigeria following the reports that he is missing since past two days.

The crowd who were all heard chanting in unison that they’re very angry about the reports demand from the federal government to reveal his whereabout.

Earlier on, youths of Mbaka’s ministry distributed notice advising members to come out for the protest.

The notice reads in part; “Good morning friends and well-wishers. Please if you know you stand for justice and you do not want the lone voice that speaks for the poor in this country to be silenced, gather at Adoration ground let’s go for a protest at the Bishops court.

“Fr. Mbaka is nowhere to be found. He went yesterday to answer the Bishop’s call and up till now, he’s not taking his calls. Let’s gather! SSG.”

It would be recalled that last week, Father Mbaka enjoined that President Buhari and Imo State governor Hope Uzodinma should resign or be impeached following the fight and bloodshed between Nigerian security forces – Army, Police and Eastern Security Network, ESN in Imo.

Mbaka who has severally voiced his support for Buhari and Hope Uzodinma withdrew his support, adding that the government he supported has failed its citizens.

Following Fr Mbaka’s earlier statement, President Buhari’s Spokesperson Garba Shehu took to his Twitter page and shared a post revealing why the federal government believes Mbaka is angry with her.

And according to him, Fr Mbaka wants Buhari impeached because the federal government refused to award him a federal contract he has been seeking for in compensation for his support to the government. The full statement reads below.

“An outsider distilling the avalanche of verbiage, will be surprised that after supporting the President two times to win the Presidency, Father Mbaka has made a complete U-Turn, preposterously asking President Buhari to resign or be impeached.

“Here is the point of departure: Father Mbaka asked for a meeting and to the shock of Presidential Aides, he came accompanied by three contractors.

“The President graciously allowed them in, and to everyone’s surprise, Father Mbaka asked for contracts as compensation for his support.

“Anyone familiar with President Buhari knows that he doesn’t break the laid down rules in dealing with contracts or any other government business for that matter. He requested the appropriate authorities to deal with the matter in accordance with laid down rules.

“Inside the Villa, discretion prevailed, that if those pictures and requests were made public, the followers will turn against the religious leader. None of it was released. Now, this is what is eating Father Mbaka.

However, videos of Mbaka’s supporters clamouring to know his whereabout have been trending online. Watch below.
