Members of the Adoration Ministry Enugu and supporters of Fr. Ejike Mbaka have threatened to take the ongoing protest to the premises of the Bishop of the Enugu Diocese, Bishop Callistus Onaga.
This is as worshipers numbering over a thousand on Sunday morning stormed the Adoration ground, to protest the closure of the Church.
Speaking to our Reporter, some of the worshippers who expressed displeasure with the decision of bishop said his decision was too harsh as it affected innocent catholic faithfuls.
“We don’t think the Bishop should have closed down the church over a comment made by our father and spiritual leader,” one of the protesters spoke in Igbo.
“Mbaka has done nothing wrong. What he ever said was his personal opinion and not that of the church so, I wonder why the Bishop should take such action against the church. Besides, He (Mbaka) has apologized.”
Another protester who spoke to our correspondent said, “The Bishop’s action will not affect Fr Mbaka in any way. We are the ones being affected here. We’re the ones suffering from this”.
“He (Mbaka) has been more than a father to us. They will not commend him for the good he is doing but will rather find fault in what he says”.
As at the time of this report, most of the worshippers were still seen at the Adoration ground dancing and singing as they have refused to leave the premises.
