ENUGU -Friday 7 May 2021: The Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has been reportedly suspended by the Catholic Diocese for one-month.

This is coming after the fiery priest launched series of attack on the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government, which was calculated by the church as portraying the religious body in bad lights.

A highly placed sources within the Diocesan leadership disclosed to the press that Fr. Mbaka has been suspended by the Catholic Diocese from church activities for one month. It has been revealed that the purpose of inviting Mbaka to the Bishop’s Court was to hand out his suspension order which took effect from May 3.

According to reports, the Enugu Catholic Bishop, Most Rev. Calistus Onaga summoned Mbaka to admonish him over his recent conducts, which were said to be smearing the image of the church.

Recall that CEOAFRICA reported yesterday, Mbaka’s reaction on his whereabouts for two days, wherein he alleged that the authorities of the Enugu Catholic Diocese were behind his ordeal.

A protest erupted in Enugu on Wednesday over the unknown whereabouts of the Catholic Cleric. It was initially speculated that he was arrested by unidentified security personnel at the official quarters of the Catholic Bishop after Fr. Mbaka had honoured an invitation by the Bishop.
