The Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka, has distanced himself and his ministry from plans to attack the Bishop of Enugu Diocese, Callistus Onaga.
One of the parishioners identified as Elijah in a video had threatened to kill Bishop Onaga for shutting down Adoration Ministry.
Mbaka, in a video post on the ministry’s Facebook page, noted that Elijah is a certified and verified psychiatric patient.
The cleric stated that Elijah is known for threatening people to make money from them but would not harm them.
Mbaka while speaking on the utterances of Elijah, said, “I wish to do a disclaimer over the utterances that are going around that Adoration people planned to attack Bishop Onaga. It is not true. The man called Elijah who made the dangerous utterance is a certified and verified psychiatric patient.
“Elijah used to be naked but by the grace of God, he now wears clothes. He is known for threatening people even though after the threat, he will not do anything. That is his own way of making money from people.
“Elijah had even threatened to kill me if I didn’t forcefully and prayerfully make him chairman of all the local governments in Enugu State. Elijah wants to be the chairman of all the 17 local governments. This is the kind of person he is. He even wanted me to make him the president or else he would kill me.
“He has said several times that he wants to remove Bishop Onaga and become the Bishop of Enugu Diocese. Is this the person you can regard his utterances? No attack or plan to attack the Bishop from the Adoration Ministry. Whoever is thinking of that, I wash my hands off it”.
