No more angels on guard, as Fr Mbaka runs for cover
Reverend Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the fiery catholic priest who has been very critical of the ruling government has suspended his weekly crusade until after the general elections due to what he said is an alleged threat to life.
His weekly crusade at the Adoration Ground in Emene, Enugu, is noted for attracting very large crowd of worshippers who come for spiritual healing and deliverance from satanic attacks, but the place was deserted last week due to his absence.
Mbaka had in a statement signed by his Media Officer, Ike Maximus Ugwoke, stated: “It is with a deep sense of concern that we are constrained to make this statement on the continued threat to the life of Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka over his 2015 New Year message titled ‘From Good Luck to Bad Luck.’
“Last Wednesday, mean looking men in a black Hilux besieged his parish compound but they left disappointed when they could not see him”.
Contacted, The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ebere Amarizu said , “we do not have any report by Fr. Mbaka over threat to his life,” dismissing the claim as baseless.
