Charismatic Enugu priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has disclosed that the authorities of the Enugu Catholic Diocese were behind his two days ordeal.
Mbaka, who addressed his parishioners at the Adoration ground in Umuchigbo Nike, Enugu, said he was summoned by the Bishop from where he was kept incommunicado.
He said the plan was to keep him for 30 days.
He said a lot of issues were presented against him after which the Church leadership, led by Bishop Calistus Onaga told him that he would remain indoors for one month, a period that would allow him pray and meditate over his activities.
The priest said he requested to be allowed the opportunity to come and address his parishioners after which he would shut down, “but they said No. I also begged them to allow me send another priest to come and celebrate mass for you today, they said No.”
He said Bishop Onaga upon seeing the protest over his predicament allowed him to go.
Mbaka said one of things presented against him was that he blessed Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
“Are you the owner of my mouth? You can’t tell me who to bless? If you are not happy that I blessed someone, you have your own mouth, you can curse the person,” he declared.
Thousands of happy residents took to the streets of Enugu to jubilate after the Spiritual director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu Nigeria (AMEN), Rev Father Ejike Mbaka reappeared following his disappearance for two days.
His disappearance had created tension in Enugu on Wednesday with many people even protesting. Many youths protested, alleging he had been picked up by security operatives or gunmen over his recent call on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign or be impeached.
DSS has earlier denied having anything to do with it and said they never arrested him as many Nigerians automatically started suspecting Buhari’s government.
In a live video update on Wednesday afternoon by BBC Pidgin, Mbaka was seen in an open roof car waving to protesters who surrounded him alongside operatives of the Nigeria Police Force.
The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, on Wednesday raised the alarm over the whereabouts of the fiery Enugu priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka.
The cleric of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, has been in the news after he asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign.
This was followed by a revelation by the presidency that he was attacking Buhari because he was refused a contract.
Ohanaeze Youth Council has now claimed that the priest was missing.
In a statement issued by the President-General of OYC, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, he said Mbaka was last seen on Tuesday, adding that every effort to trace him had failed.
“We have it on good authority that his aides have neither seen nor heard from him since Tuesday.
“Calls put to his mobile line have also remained unanswered; this has now prompted us to issue this alarm as we would not take it lightly should anything untoward happen to him.
“We are giving the Federal Government 48 hours to produce the priest, else they should be ready to face Igbo youths. They were dining and wining with him all along and now that he told the truth, they are no longer comfortable with him.
“Let nothing happen to Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka. It will not be in anybody’s interest,” the group warned.
Meanwhile, DAILY POST reached out to close aides of the Catholic Cleric but they declined comment, noting that the picture was not clear yet.
“Today is the Wednesday programme, ‘E no dey again’, if he don’t officiate, it will then be clear that something is wrong,” one of them said.
But a source who refused to be named disclosed that he was last seen yesterday, Tuesday, when he departed to honour an invitation by his Bishop.
DAILY POST also learnt that following the apprehension, all the youths of the ministry have been summoned to the Adoration ground.
The message inviting the youths to the Adoration ground, obtained by DAILY POST read, “Important!
“Good morning friends and well-wishers. Please if you know you stand for justice and you do not want the lone voice that speaks for the poor in this country to be silenced, gather at Adoration ground let’s go for a protest at the Bishops court.
“Fr. Mbaka is nowhere to be found. He went yesterday to answer the Bishop’s call and up till now, he’s not taking his calls. Let’s gather! SSG.”
Catholic Priest and Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Fr Ejike Mbaka, has reacted to an allegation by the presidency that he once brought three contractors to President Muhammadu Buhari and was rebuffed.
Mbaka had on Wednesday said God is angry with Buhari over his inaction on the widespread killings across the nation.
Speaking at the Adoration Ministry in Enugu, Mbaka said it is wrong for Buhari to maintain grave silence despite the incessant killings in the country.
He accused the government of being behind several killings across the country and tagging separatists groups as terrorists rather than focus on getting them good jobs.
The cleric also frowned on the activities of herders that destroy the farmland of people without any repercussion.
He said Buhari had failed Nigeria woefully and that he should resign now. Mbaka also called for the President’s impeachment.
Reacting to the allegation by the Presidency on Sunday, Mbaka blasted Garba Shehu, saying he only recommended three people to the presidency for a project to end insecurity in the country.
In a video obtained by SaharaReporters, Mbaka, in a veiled reference to Shehu’s allegation, said, “If I talk, you talk, because the government is paying you? Do you know how many people I am paying? I am an employer.
“Someone said he gave father Mbaka a contract; I started laughing. I am not here to defend anybody’s stupid allegation but God used that man (Garba Shehu) to tell the world that the Buhari government is not giving me money. Shehu, God bless you for telling everybody you didn’t give me a contract.
“The three men he (Garba Shehu) talked about..these were the three men that I recommended to the government; they wanted to tackle insecurity; they had the gadgets. That was during the first administration.
“They had a platform to end insecurity in one month. I handed them over to the government people. I didn’t know them. They said they had all it takes to revive the oil apparatus and get the youths employed; the government rejected their offers.
“Do they know how many people I feed? They reported they denied me a contract; which contract? Do they know how many widows I am paying their house rents? If a priest who has no child can do this, the federal government should do more.
“If they are worried I am blessing Nnamdi Kanu, is he not blessed, is he not my brother spiritually, is he not my son? What’s their problem? Let them be careful with their choice of words. If anyone tells the truth, he becomes a terrorist, shame on you…. I do my charity without assistance.”
Catholic priest and the spiritual Director Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria (AMEN), Very Reverend Father Cammellus Ebenizah Ejike Mbaka has during today’s Sunday Holy mass advised the Nigeria politicians and the leaders to see the recent attack on the Governor of Imo State as the beginning of what is going to befall on them starting from Aso Rock to the local Government level. He said, the recent attack on the Governor’s properties by the unknown gunmen is a prophecy coming through against the leaders. “This was prophesied here four years ago and it came again early this year. How can you be treating our young graduates the way you do and think they will be happy for you? Hope Uzodinma has gotten everything wrong and what has befallen him is a sign of bad leadership. There is bad leadership in imo state and that is why it is boiling today. The imolites are not happy. He said.
The catholic priest who dished out the statements during the Holy mass homily, which he tagged “the good shepherd stressed that the Imo State Governor lacked a good adviser and should try as much as he can to retrace his wrong step. “Hope came here for prayers to become the governor of Imo, I do not know who he is before and not to talk of giving me money. Before God and man Hope did not give me a dime to pray for him and I don’t collect money before I pray for anybody because, my anointing cannot be merchandise. No one can buy it. It is the gift of the holyspirit. I asked Hope to lay his hand upon the Holy Bible on the sanctuary and make a convanant that he will take good care of the Imo people which he did, but after he became the governor, Hope has never called me on phone and refused to pick up my calls as well. If he had been calling or answering my calls, I would have advised him when he was going wrong. He added.
Mbaka stressed that, after he had prayed for Hope and he became the governor, he directed him to contact one of the Catholic priest in Owerri and make him his spiritual adviser, but he paid a deaf ears and keep putting the lives of those he was meant to govern at risk. “How can you be killing your people and think they will be happy for you?
“I heared all the governors of the southeast went to Imo to hover arround the destroyed properties of the governor. That is not the solution because more is still coming and it is not going to be in Imo alone but nation. Build industries and get our youths engaged as soon as posdible or your lives are in danger. He warned.
He further advised the imolites to start packing their belongings out of the state and find a safety place to stay for a while because more havoc and unpleasant things are still going to happen in the state. “Hope has failed the imo citizens and now he is getting what he deserves, he think he will cheat the Holy spirit here. No, it is a matter of time and he wiil fight for himself and the time is now. Imagine, Hope could not return to the altar that made him a governor to kneel and thank the Holyspirit. I do not ask him to give me money because I have enough. There is no amount of money I will need today that the holyspirit cannot provide for me. He exhausted.
” I am conversant with much of world history yet I have NEVER read or heard of a people that are more comfortable with tyranny and bondage and pleased with poverty and suffering than Nigerians.
Push a Nigerian to the wall and rather than fight back he will dig a hole into it to escape.
Consider Gen. T.Y. Danjuma. He still can’t find the balls to speak the truth and reveal all yet he is complaining about others! He more than any other helped put the north in power on July 29th 1966. He also supported Buhari in 2015.
Someone please tell him that Nigerians have already lost their sleep and that he should speak up NOW & free us from the bondage that he helped put us in.
Obasanjo, Danjuma, Babangida, Tinubu, Adeboye, Mbaka, Atiku and all the others that helped put Buhari in power in 2015 and destroy Nigeria will answer to God for what they did.
Due to their poor judgement hundreds of thousands have been killed in the last 4 years and so many lives and families have been decimated and destroyed. The blood of these innocent souls and victims screams from the earth and is crying to God in Heaven for vengeance.
We must be bold enough to speak the truth and the truth is that Buhari is not our only problem but all those who colluded with him and conspired to put him in power in 2015.
We warned them over and over again yet they refused to listen. Worse still they insulted us, ridiculed our concerns, laughed us to scorn, belittled our fears and stubbornly and blindly insisted on putting a beast in power. Now they are ALL complaining!
As a people Nigerians have nothing to lose anymore. We have lost it all already but we just don’t know it or we refuse to accept and admit it!
Our nation, our freedom, our pride, our dignity, our honor and our self-esteem: all gone! The only thing that we have left to fear is fear itself and death: yet, as the Bible says, “to die is Christ and to live is gain!”
I urge my people to shed their FEARS and to find the courage to stand up and speak truth to power! I urge them to be the men and women that they were destined to be and not to accept the tyranny of tyrants or choose to be part of a colony of slaves.
It is time to make a choice between freedom and servitude. It is time to choose between light and darkness. It is time to stand for good and the forces of light against evil and the forces of darkness.
I have made that choice and I urge you to join me: I would rather live free for a short period of time and make a difference than live a slave for one thousand years! ”

Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, has threatened to resign his priesthood by October 1, if his latest prophecy comes to nought.
The controversial man of God had declared that “there will be heavy rain in Aso-Rock on the 1st of October” because God is angry with President Muhammadu Buhari.
A report obtained by GNWA Updates, quoted Mbaka to have made the declaration while addressing his congregation in Enugu, Southeast Nigeria.
GNWA Updates believes that Fr. Mbaka was one of those who predicted President Buhari’s reelection, made this comment in reaction to Rev. Ebube Muonso, who accused him of being a fake prophet.
Muonso, whose real name is Emmanuel Chibuzo Obimma, is an Ordained Catholic Priest and Founder of Holy Ghost Adoration Ministry, Anambra State, Nigeria.
Reacting to the allegation, Mbaka said: “I don’t have much words to say over what Ebube Mounso said about me, I’m a Prophet of God everyone knows that when I prophesy it comes to pass, and for someone to come from nowhere and question my authenticity, that person is on the brink of extinction”.
Apparently displeased by the statements credited to Rev. Mounso, the Adoration Minister prophesied that there will be darkness in the cloud over Nigeria for complete 5 hours from 12noon till 5pm on October 1, after which a massive rain with thunder will follow.
His words: “To prove my authenticity to the world and Nigerians in general, to prove that am really a Prophet of God, I’m going to make a Prophecy that ‘on the first of October coming month, there will be darkness in the cloud over Nigeria for a complete 5hours starting from 12noon till 5pm then, after it will be followed by a massive rain with thunder.’ If this sign did not occur on the 1st of October, then I will resign as a Prophet.”
Speaking further, Mbaka said: “I repeat again, on the 1st of October, there will be darkness in the cloud over Nigeria for a complete 5hours starting on the 12noon till 5 pm, then after it, will follow up a massive rain with thunder. If this sign did not occur on the 1st of October, then I will resign as a Prophet”.
On his authenticity which has been questioned by the Anambra based priest and rival, Mbaka said: “As for Ebube Mouson we shall meet on the Mountain.”
Meanwhile, October 1 is Nigeria’s Independent Day. The country which gained her independence October 1, 1960, will attain 59 years in Oct 1st, 2019.

The Spiritual Director, Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), Reverend Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has charged Nigerians to pray hard to overcome what he called ‘impending unimaginable difficulty’ this year.
Fr. Mbaka stated this in the early hours of Tuesday during his New Year prophetic message.
He said that the type of difficulty the country is going to face is such that has not been witnessed in its 58 years history.
While praying for the country and its leaders, the outspoken Catholic priest enjoined Nigerians to support President Muhammad Buhari to continue his fight against corruption, noting that the Catholic Church supports the fight against corruption and that was why she created ‘prayers against bribery and corruption’.
“A President that is fighting corruption needs to be supported”, he stated.
This year’s Cross Over programme at Fr. Mbaka’s church seemed to have attracted the highest number of worshippers ever, even as Daily Sun observed that the prophetic message which most times came around 2:00am was delivered around 5:00am by the priest. (The Sun)
