The Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has distanced himself from Sunday’s protests by his followers at the Adoration ground.
The protest, which was targeted at the Enugu Catholic Bishop, Most Rev. Callistus Onaga rocked the capital city, as the demonstrators insisted that the Bishop must go.
The protest was a reaction to the ban imposed on the Adoration Ministry by Bishop Onaga.
But, in a statement personally signed by the priest Monday morning, Mbaka said he never knew about the protest and did not authorise it.
He said rather he received in obedience the ban on his Adoration ministry and had since shut the ministry till further notice.
Mbaka also called on his members who had taken “to attacking or insulting my dear Bishop,” to desist from that as according to him, the Bishop is the shepherd of the church in the Diocese and must be respected.
