The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, on Wednesday raised alarm over the whereabouts of the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu Nigeria, AMEN , Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka.
The fiery Enugu priest has been in the news after he asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign for his failure to tackle the rising insecurity in the country.
In a statement issued by the Zonal Secretary 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 them 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.
DAILY POST reports that they 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 doesn’t officiate, it will then be clear that something is wrong,” one of them said.
