Father Mbaka’s Whereabout Unknown Ohanaeze Youth Council Raises Alarm
Written by Ogbodo Emmanuel on May 5, 2021
The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide (OYC) on Wednesday raised the alarm over the whereabouts of Catholic priest, Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka.
Tribune Online had earlier reported that the priest of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, had been in the news after he asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign over insecurity in the country.
The Presidency swiftly responded to the cleric’s call by stating that the Catholic priest was bellyaching because he was refused a contract by the Buhari-led administration.
Ohanaeze Youth Council has now claimed that Fr. Mbaka was missing.
In a statement issued by the President-General of OYC, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, he said Mbaka was last seen on Tuesday, adding that every effort to find him had failed.
“We have it on good authority that his aides have neither seen nor heard from him since Tuesday. Calls put to his mobile line have also remained unanswered; this has now prompted us to issue this alarm as we would not take it lightly should anything untoward happens to him,” the youth group claimed.
“We are giving the Federal Government 48 hours to produce the priest, or 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 Fr. Ejike Mbaka. It will not be in anybody’s interest,” the group warned.
