Outspoken Enugu-based Catholic Priest, Reverend Fr. Ejike Mbaka has suspended his weekly crusade at the Adoration Ground in Emene, Enugu State, until after the general elections due to alleged threat to life.
The Adoration Ground attracts over 100,000 worshippers every Friday from the South-East zone and beyond for spiritual healing and deliverance.
The priest had in a statement signed by his Media Officer, Ike Maximus Ugwoke, said: “It is with a deep sense of concern that we are constrained to make this statement on the continued threat to the life of Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka over his 2015 New Year message titled ‘From Good Luck to Bad Luck.’
“Last Wednesday, mean looking men in a black Hilux besieged his parish compound but they left disappointed when they could not see him”.
Vanguard however quotes the Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Ebere Amarizu as saying that the priest did not make any formal report about the threat, dismissing it as baseless.
He said: “We do not have any report by Fr. Mbaka over threat to his life”.
