Father Mbaka’s suspension lifted

    Enugu Catholic Diocese has lifted the ban which stopped all priests and Catholic faithfuls from attending the Adoration Ministry, Enugu led by the controversial priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka. 

    Recall that Bishop of the Diocese, Most. Rev. Callistus Onaga had on June 18, 2022 pronounced the indefinite ban in a letter he personally signed to all clerics, religious and lay faithful, stopping all Catholic faithful and clergy in the diocese from having anything to do with the Mbaka’s Adoration Ministry.

    The ban was pronounced after Mbaka’s scathing remarks against Labour Party Presidential candidate, Peter Obi. 

    The Nation reported that three months after, Director of communications of the Enugu Catholic Diocese, Rev. Fr. Benjamin Achi confirmed that the ban has been lifted. 

    He said, henceforth, masses would begin to hold at The Adoration Ground.

     “I can confirm to you that the ban has been lifted. That’s the situation now. There’ll be Mass there beginning from this Sunday and subsequent Sundays”. he said

    Mbaka who also confirmed the development, said; 

    “Dear Adorers,

    “To the glory of God, Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria Amen, starts on Sunday 2nd October, 2022 with 10am Mass at the Adoration ground Umuchigbo Iji Nike Emene Enugu State.

    “God bless you miraculously as you come to worship God with us.
