““Our Spiritual Director, Rev Fr. Ejike Mbaka wishes to inform his beloved adorers that he has embarked on a private prayer retreat that will end on 10th June 2021.
“Consequently, no ministry activities shall be held in the ministry ground pending his return.
“He directs that members of the ministry are to observe this period of his retreat as they used to do during the usual January breaks of the ministry, by praying at their homes, being charitable and fasting according to their ability.
“Adoration! Holy Spirit is our Power.”
Recall that E-nigeria! Had earlier reported that Mbaka’s faithful’s on Wednesday penultimate week besieged the home of Bishop Callistus Anaga, destroying valuables in the house.
The Adoration faithfuls claimed that Fr. Mbaka was kidnapped by the Bishop since his where about was unknown at the time.
Although Mbaka had apologized to the Catholic Church in Enugu and his Bishop for the desecration of the church on the following Sunday but it appears he needed to do more than his oral apologies.
