Father Mbaka has been removed from Adoration Ministry.
Newsone reports that Charismatic Enugu Priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has been transferred out from the Adoration Ministry in Enugu State, southeast Nigeria, where he was the Spiritual Director.
This online news platform understands that Father Mbaka removal from Adoration Ministry is already generating protest from followers of the controversial Catholic Priest.
The development is coming after the Adoration Ministry, which was shut down three months ago, was re-opened yesterday, Sunday, October 2, 2022.
Newsone Nigeria learned that in the place of Father Mbaka, another clergy of the Catholic Diocese of Enugu, Rev. Fr. Anthony Amadi has been posted to take charge of the Adoration Ministry.
Mbaka has been sent to Monastery. The transfer is with immediate effect.
A top member of the ministry, who confirmed the posting to DAILY POST, said the development was unfortunate.
According to him, “all along, the Bishop has been trying to take over the Adoration Ministry. But I can assure you that no priest will succeed there. So long as Fr. Mbaka is not there, nobody will come there to worship.
“This will lead to anarchy. It’s unthinkable that this kind of harsh decision could be made. We the adorers will never accept any other priest.
“Fr. Mbaka suffered and built that place will sole effort. Now they have tactically hijacked the place through the backyard. Let’s see how they will succeed.”
Father Mbaka’s trouble started three months ago after he preached against the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, where he said a “stingy man cannot be our President”.
