Popular Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka who happens to be the Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry in Enugu, Nigeria, has pleaded with his fellow Catholic Priests to stop condemning him for praying for the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
The Rev. has repeatedly asked the government of Nigeria to release the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu and has placed a warning that noting should happen to Nnamdi.
In a new year message at his adoration ministry, he said “he’s not closing any priest’s mouth and nobody should close his”.
In his words;
“I’m begging my fellow priests to stop condemning me for praying for Nnamdi Kanu. I am not closing any priest’s mouth and nobody should close my own. If I use my mouth to bless Nnamdi Kanu and you don’t like it, please use your own mouth to curse him. Leave me to bless him.
“I see Nnamdi Kanu as my son. Every Igbo man and woman is my child. You may not understand the spiritual authority I have on this land.
“If as a church, we can be praying for Nigeria in distress, nobody can stop us from praying for Nnamdi Kanu and our brothers in distress.
“This year will be for Kanu and those held for agitations. God will show them mercy this year.”
