The Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry Enugu, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka, his distanced himself from the protest against the ban on the ministry.
Naija News had reported that worshippers at the Adoration Ministry in Enugu on Sunday protested against the ban on the ministry by the Catholic Bishop of Enugu Diocese, Most. Rev. Callistus Onaga.
The worshippers took to the streets of Umuchigbo on the outskirts of Enugu metropolis to protest the ban on the ministry by Most. Rev. Ogaga.
Recall that Onaga had on Saturday in his pastoral injunction banned all Catholics from visiting the ministry till further notice following the priest’s scathing remark on the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.
In a statement he personally signed on Monday, Mbaka said he is not in any way involved in the protest against the ban and that he received with obedience the directive of the Bishop.
He appealed to the faithful especially members of the Adoration Ministry to be calm and refrain from measures of violence.
“Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria is ever submissive to the mother Church. I enjoin all Adorers to know this and remain constantly in prayers for the manifestation of the will of God in the life of the Ministry.
“The life of the Adoration Ministry is in the hands of God under the direction of the Chief Shepherd of the Diocese,” Mbaka’s statement reads in part.
