Father Mbaka escapes assassination

Controversial Catholic priest of Enugu Adoration Ministry, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, yesterday, alleged that there was an assassination attempt on him in Enugu, saying it was politically motivated.

Mbaka’s spokesman, Maximus Ugwuoke, said the incident took place on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State, who was a beneficiary of Mbaka’s blessings last Sunday, has called for investigation of the allegation.

The alleged assassination attempt came on the heels of the backlash against the Catholic priest following his statement that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and his running mate, Mr Peter Obi, will end in disgrace after Obi failed to donate to his church during a visit last week.

In a statement, five officials of Adoration Ministry said other alleged attempts on the priest’s life in 2002 and 2015 were also politically motivated.

The statement reads in part: “It is with rude shock and utter surprise that we received the report of the attempted assassination plot of the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria last Thursday evening by some unknown gun men who fired gun shots at him on his way in Enugu.”
