Mbaka removed from Adoration Ministry, sent to Monastery

By CHARLES ONYEKWERE, ABAKALIKI

Controversial Enugu Priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has been transferred out from the Adoration Ministry.

The Trumpet gathered that the Church’s latest decision is already generating protest from Mbaka’s followers.

The Adoration Ministry, which was shut down three months ago, was re-opened yesterday, Sunday.

However, in the place of Fr. 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 The Trumpet, 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.”

Mbaka’s trouble started three months ago after he preached against Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi.
