Meanwhile, Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka, the spiritual director of Adoration Ministry Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), has revealed where he went to when an allegation that he was missing sparked a protest on Wednesday, May 5.
The cleric who showed up after some hours of the protest said the Bishop of Enugu dioceses, Callistus Valentine Onaga, summoned him for a meeting and planned to close his ministry and keep him for 30 days.
According to BBC Pidgin, Mbaka told his congregation that the Bishop later allowed him to go and address the protesting crowd who had flooded the streets of Enugu over the allegation that he was missing.
