The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council (OYC), has condemned the invitation extended to controversial Catholic priest, Rev. Fr Ejike Mbaka by the Department of State Services (DSS), warning that there will be war if anything happens to him.
Mbaka, who is the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministries, Enugu (AMEN), had, during a programme at the Adoration Ground on Sunday, raised the alarm over his invitation by the DSS, announcing that he had been summoned to report to their office in Abuja.
The OYC, in a statement issued on Monday its President-General, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, said it would not condone further harassment of the priest with the intention of silencing him.
The statement reads: “I condemn the invitation because it is a plan by the Federal Government to silence Fr. Mbaka; whoever speaks without supporting the government they now come for the person, just like it banned Twitter.
“There will be war if anything should happen to Father Mbaka.
“DSS has no reason to invite Mbaka. The same Mbaka prophesied the emergence of Buhari, he was not invited by DSS then, but now that he is talking about the state of the nation, hunger and killings in the land, DSS came to invite him.
“But we warn that any plot against Mbaka must be resisted by Igbo youths, let nothing happen to him. This onslaught against a revered priest in Igbo land should stop forthwith.
“The Enugu Catholic Bishop should cease from trying to silence Mbaka. Mbaka has been talking under two past Bishops – Eneja and Gbuji, they did not disturb him. We are in the know that the FG is on the neck of Onaga to silence Mbaka.
“They want Mbaka banned and sent out of the Catholic Church. But they must know that the physical cannot control the spiritual.
“Mbaka should continue to prophesy to the world, those who don’t have such a gift are just envious of him.”
