NewsOne Nigeria reports that Rev. Father Ejike Mbaka who is the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry in Enugu, southeast Nigeria, has charged Nigerians not to be afraid of deadly Coronavirus (COVID-19) as the pandemic disease will soon go back.
This burgeoning online news platform understands that the controversial catholic priest was quoted by Journalist101 to have made this statement on Wednesday, the excerpts from Wednesday’s gathering at the Adoration published by the medium revealed.
Father Mbaka said: “Children of God When you go home, circulate the message that a man of God known as Fr. Ejike Mbaka told you not to be afraid of coronavirus. Be courageous it will soon be a thing of the past,” the cleric was quoted by the news medium to have said.
“Fear is a dangerous omen if you become perplexed over it, it shows that you don’t believe so much on God’s power. Ebola came, it died off, this one will also die off. It is like bird flue disease, it will come and go.
“I know that the whole world is waiting to hear from the message that will come out from this place, but the message I have is that the disease will soon go.
‘Under the priestly anointing, I release healing to the entire world, particularly where the disease is ravaging so much, let there be healing, let there be sunray always, which is one of the antidotes to the disease. God release drug that will cure it in Jesus name AMEN,” Mbaka reportedly said.
