Controversial Catholic Priest who is the spiritual director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka, on Wednesday returned from the monastery after eight months of suspension.
A video circulating online which was obtained by The Eastern Updates showed a crowd welcoming Mbaka at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu.
Recall that Enugu Catholic Diocese shut his Adoration Ministry on June 3, 2022, and banned Mbaka from commenting on political issues.
The Church later reopened the ministry and turned it into Chaplaincy to monitor the excesses in the ministry.
Later in October, the Catholic Bishop of Enugu Diocese, Most Rev. Callistus Onaga, asked Mbaka to proceed to the monastery for more revelations concerning his ministry.
Rev Fr Anthony Amadi was consequently named to replace him as the new chaplain of the Adoration Ministry Chaplaincy.
Recall that the Ministry had earlier confirmed that the fiery priest will be returning after he was done observing some moments of solitude.
This report had been confirmed by Padre Mike Nsikak Umoh who is the National Director of Social Communications, the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria (CSN).
The clarification had also followed some protests that had greeted the news of Mbaka’s announcement of his replacement during a mass on Sunday.
He had also told his followers that Rev. Fr. Anthony Amadi has been appointed his replacement as he proceeds to the monastery and the development had sparked some protests from the adorers.
