Mbaka reportedly violated political neutrality as he verbally attacked Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, saying that the former Anambra governor is a stingy man.
The priest's comment on Peter Obi received some outrage and condemnation which made the Bishop of the Enugu Diocese issue a pastoral injunction on attendance to Catholic Adoration Ministry Chaplaincy Enugu.
The bishop then urged all Catholics to stop visiting the church until further notice.
But on Friday, Mbaka's followers in their hundreds storm the church road to welcome his return to the AMEN.
