Mbaka reacts after DSS summoned him to Abuja


Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) have summoned Catholic Priest, Ejike Mbaka, to Abuja for questioning.

Officials of the secret police visited the Adoration Ministry in Enugu to drop the letter of invitation. However, they didn't meet the cleric at the church premises.

Details of why DSS summoned the priest were not stated but it might not be unconnected with Mbaka's criticism of the Buhari government in recent times.

Mbaka, the Spiritual Director, Adoration Ministry Enugu, had recently asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign or be impeached over worsening insecurity.

In response, the Presidency accused the Reverend Father of being angry with Buhari because his demand for government contracts was rebuffed.

Reacting to the summon in a video, Mbaka said, "I got a call that the DSS people from Abuja came here (Enugu) with a letter of invitation to Abuja. Over what? What I cannot understand is that the mother church in Nigeria should be "cowed down" to lilliputian.

"The church is a lion and lamb. The bible says if the foundation is destroyed, what can the righteous do.

"Every priest is a prophet and a king. We must protect the sheep. In this time, when killings are every day story, when there is hunger everywhere, people do not have hope again. 

"The only hope I have is God. Anybody who will stop people from worshipping here will regret it.

"I am the servant here. They don't understand history. I spoke against Abacha. I went to Minna to tell Babangida what was wrong in his time.

"I spoke to Obasanjo face to face. I perform under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. I ministered to the late President Yaradua. I am being used by a higher being called the Holy Spirit.

"If they are attacking me here and there, no wahala (no problem). The Bible says if God is for us, who can be against us? Only God can be God. 

"I heard the security people did not accept the letter. They asked them to come on Monday to give me the letter. If they know the anointing here is too hot for them, let them change. I will not keep quiet."

The Catholic Diocese of Enugu had banned Mbaka from commenting on partisan politics over his recent drama with Buhari government.
