Addressing the jubilant congregation, The Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka said that he was not arrested or detained by security agents.
Mbaka said that he was invited to a meeting with the Bishop of Enugu Catholic Diocese, Callistus Onaga, where he was ordered to vacate the adoration ground and remain silent for 30 days.
He said that he was surprised to see other persons at the meeting which he thought was only between him and the Bishop.
He said there was a plan to shut the adoration ground over his recent comments against the govermment and for blessing Nnamdi Kanu.
“They ordered me to leave the Adoration Ground for 30 days. To be silent for 30 days and to leave Enugu. Their plan was to even send me to Rome after the 30 days.
“I asked them why I am being punished. They cannot tell me who to bless. They are angry that I blessed Nnamdi Kanu. I am a priest of God and nobody can tell me who to bless. Is it your blessing? Are you the one giving him life? Are you the one giving him life? Go and take away God’s blessings from him.
“If you said I spoke against government, is there no insecurity in the country? Are they angry that I said government should provide jobs for the youths? I am a priest of God and I will continue to bless and speak the truth.
“I saw the implication of keeping me there. I told them that my people will look for me if they don’t allow me to attend the today’s programme (E no dey again).
“What would have happened if I had left Enugu as they instructed? We are a people of peace so I want you all to be peaceful. We wilI meet here again on Sunday God willing.”
