On Wednesday, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo World Youth Council (OYC) sounded the alarm on the fate of Catholic priest Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka.
Tribune Online previously reported that Worship Ministry priest Enugu made headlines after asking President Muhammadu Buhari to step down due to insecurity in the country.
The presidency quickly responded to the cleric’s call by stating that the Catholic priest had a stomach ache because he had been refused a contract by the administration led by Buhari.
The Ohanaeze Youth Council has now claimed that Fr. Mbaka is missing.
In a statement released by OYC General Chairman Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, he said Mbaka was last seen on Tuesday, adding that all efforts to find him have failed.
“We know in good faith that his associates have not seen or heard from him since Tuesday. Calls made on his mobile line also went unanswered; this has now prompted us to sound this alarm because we would not take him. not lightly if something untoward happens to him, âthe youth group said.
âWe are giving the federal government 48 hours to produce the priest, otherwise they should be ready to take on the Igbo youth. They had been dining and drinking with him from the start and now that he has told the truth they are no longer comfortable with him. May nothing happen to Fr. Ejike Mbaka. It will not be in the interest of anyone, âwarned the group.
When Online forum reached out to one of the Catholic cleric’s close associates, he declined to comment, saying the situation was still unclear.
âToday is Wednesday’s schedule, he’s supposed to be there. But if he didn’t show up today, that means something is wrong, âa source in the church also said.
