Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka, Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, has condemned the invasion by protesting youths and women of Bishop’s Court at Igboeze street Independence Layout and Holy Ghost Cathedral Enugu last Wednesday.
Mbaka, who kneeled down while celebrating mass at adoration ground on Sunday in Enugu, begged for forgiveness from Bishop Calistus Onaga and all Catholic Church worldwide.
Recall that there was tension in Enugu on Wednesday as Mbaka’s followers poured into the streets after they declared him missing.
They marched from the Adoration ground in Emene, Enugu, to the Bishop’s Court at Igboeze Street, Independence Layout Enugu where they destroyed some parts of the building.
The protesters did not stop at that as they also headed for the Holy Ghost Cathedral where several church facilities were vandalized.
Mbaka, later appeared, addressed his followers and said he would have been kept incommunicado by the Bishop for 30 days but for their protest.
Mbaka, who warned his followers against the destruction of Catholic Church properties, said he never sent his followers to embark on such destruction.
He said: “I want to plead with my Bishop and Catholic Church Diocess over the ugly incident which occurred last week Wednesday. I will never disrespect my Bishop because I’m under him.
“Bishop and I never had any misunderstanding and we will continue to work together to win souls and preach the gospel to the people,” he said
