Controversial Catholic priest and Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has commended the Federal Government over the arrest of judges, describing it as a supernatural revolution.
According to Mbaka,“whoever arrests them (judges) should be praised.”
He also said that God was revolutionizing Nigeria with the arrest of the judges, who he said have been the untouchables before now, adding that those who influenced them to pervert the cause of justice should also be arrested.
The priest stated this at the thanksgiving mass organized by the Enugu State Judiciary to mark the 2016/2017 legal year at the Adoration Ground.
Though Mbaka said some of the arrested judges may not be corrupt, he, however, called for proper investigation, insisting those found culpable be jailed.
“The arrest of the judges is a supernatural brand new revolution that is going on in all dimensions, in all the three arms of government.
“When a revolution starts, you cannot imagine where it would reach.
“I urge judges to remain incorruptible or be arrested and whoever arrests them should be praised.”
Mbaka’s social activism has seen him fall apart with various administrations both at the local and federal levels. He is widely held to have swayed large public opinion against former President Goodluck Jonathan, even prophesying that he would lose the 2015 presidential poll.
Against incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari, Mbaka has been relatively calm, only once berating the presidency and complaining that he was being denied access to convey his views on state matters to the President. At that time, he had cried out that poverty and hunger was devastating the country.
