After the chaos in Enugu over the whereabouts of the spiritual director of Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria (AMEN), Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka, he has resurfaced.
The outspoken cleric returned in a vehicle a few minutes past 2 pm as his supporters were seen shouting ‘Father Mbaka, Oh! you are home', Punch reports.
The reverend father later came out of the vehicle to rejoice with his supporters.
The cleric has been trending on social media over his unknown whereabouts and accusing fingers have been pointed at the federal government, especially at the Department of State Security (DSS).
In fact, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide sent a direct warning to the federal government over this.
The council said in a statement by its president, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike:
“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."
Recall that Legit.ng had earlier reported that there was uncertainty surrounding the whereabouts of the Catholic priest.
A group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide (OYC), in Enugu on Wednesday, May 5, raised an alarm, claiming that the whereabouts of Mbaka is unknown.
Legit.ng recalls that Mbaka had warned that heaven's anger will descend on the Muhammadu Buhari administration if the government fights him.
The controversial Catholic priest said this on Sunday, May 2, adding that he speaks against the government on behalf of the Nigerian masses.
He also prophesied that there was an imminent disaster in Nigeria just as he charged the government to provide employment opportunities for the youths.
