The critical Catholic Priest, Reverend Fr. Ejike Mbaka of Adoration Ministries, Enugu, has suspended his weekly crusade until after the general elections due to alleged threat to life.
The decision to shut the church, considered to be the largest christian congregation in the entire Southeast left worshippers stranded and disappointed last Friday.
The Adoration Ground in Emene, Enugu, is noted for attracting over 100,000 worshippers every Friday from the South-East zone and beyond for spiritual healing and deliverance from satanic attacks.
Mbaka had in a statement signed by his Media Officer, Ike Maximus Ugwoke, stated that “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,” the statement claimed.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, Ebere Amarizu however denied any knowledge of allege threat to Mbaka’s life.
“We do not have any report by Fr. Mbaka over threat to his life,” dismissing the claim as baseless.
Recalled that the Catholic priest had recently raised the alarm that President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife, Patience were planning to assassinate him over his prediction that the All Progressives Presidential Candidate,Gen. Muhammadu Buhari would win the March 28th election.
