The spiritual director Adoration Ministry Enugu, Rev Fr Ejike Camilus Mbaka popularly known as Fr Mbaka has been banned from solely heading the Adoration Ministry.
The ban came a month after he was summoned by the Bishop, Catholic Diocese of Enugu, Rev. Callistus Valentine Onaga over his recent statement on state of things in Nigeria and his condemnation of the Buhari government, plus his recent comments concerning Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Following the summon, Adoration Ministry in May sent a statement to its members that Fr Mbaka was going on a one-month private prayer retreat, citing the leadership of Enugu Catholic Diocese as saying that he should remain indoors for a period of one month to enable him to pray and meditate over his activities.
On recent action taken by the Catholic Diocese of Enugu against the cleric, he has been banned from commenting on partisan politics or making any prophetic statement over the outcome of any election in the country.
Catholic Church has also minimized the influence of Father Mbaka over his Ministry by converting the famous Enugu Adoration Ministry to Chaplaincy. And by this, it means that Fr Mbaka will from henceforth be under the leadership of a Chaplain who will oversee the activities in the Adoration Ministry and report to the Catholic Diocese of Enugu.
This has also swiftly given Bishop the power to appoint a Chaplain who oversees every operations in the Adoration Ministry, although according Rev. Onaga, Fr Mbaka still leads the Chaplaincy but his activities will be under the watch of a Chaplain.
Meanwhile, the controversial man of God had on Sunday, May 9, pleaded with Bishop Calistus Onaga, to forgive him and his followers for their actions. He also apologised and begged the Catholic Church to forgive him over his recent mistakes.
