Ohanaeze Reacts Over Ban on Mbaka's Adoration Ministry

Ohanaeze Reacts Over Ban on Mbaka’s Adoration Ministry

by Victor Ndubuisi

Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, the youth arm of the leading Igbo socio-cultural organization, has demanded the reopening of Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka’s Adoration Ministry and warned that a protracted shutdown might be fatal.

According to Anaedoonline.ng, the ministry was shut down as a result of Mbaka’s outburst against Mr. Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate.

As a result of a guy being shown in a viral video threatening to assassinate Bishop Callistus Onaga of the Enugu Catholic Diocese, the parishioners of Adoration raised a protest, which did little to improve the situation.

The young guy in question has mental health concerns, according to Mbaka, who earlier came out to state that he would never be a part of any scheme to hurt the Bishop.


The OYC responded in a statement made available to Newsmen on Wednesday, saying the Adoration Ministry’s protracted shutdown was a ticking time bomb.

The OYC National President, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, and the Secretary, Comrade Obinna Achionye, both signed the statement.

The group said that they had been making an attempt to soothe the agitated supporters of Fr. Mbaka, however they emphasized that it would be impossible to maintain their composure for too long.

While alleging deliberate plot to frustrate Fr. Mbaka out of the ministry, the OYC said, “instead of being an upper room ministry which is what it is, like the Ebube Monso Ministry and the Catholic Prayer Ministry, Elele, Mbaka’s own has now been converted into a chaplaincy.

“Our information revealed that there is a serious gang up and conspiracy against Fr. Mbaka, in addition to plans to take over everything he has laboured for in life, with a view towards crippling his source of magnified charity to the poor masses and send him out to overseas for further studies after 28 years of his priestly ordination.”

The Ohanaeze youths also claimed to have uncovered plans to build a seminary at the Adoration ground, noting that, “if actually it is about Peter Obi, Fr. Mbaka has even apologized for his statements, and we had expected the Church authority to forgive him in line with Biblical injunctions. After all, what he said was a prophecy, the right thing was to pray against it.”


On the threat video, the group said the personality involved was a known mentally unstable character and that no one should lose sleep over “his rantings.”

They appeal to Bishop Onaga “to consider the numerous people Fr. Mbaka puts food on their table everyday. We are saying this because should they take to the streets, it would be difficult to control them. In fact, the situation is just a bomb waiting to explode. We have been talking to them but we don’t know how long we can hold them.

“This is a man who takes care of over 25,000 persons either by direct employment or charity interventions. Such a person should not be treated with levity.

“The Church should learn to practise what they preach on forgiveness. The Bible told us that forgiveness could be as much as 70 times 70. So, since the priest has apologized, the Church should look at the bigger picture and forgive him.”
