Political Escapades: Catholic Church Suspends Fr Mbaka

The Catholic Diocese of Enugu has suspended Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka from church activities for one month.

Fr Mbaka was asked to proceed on suspension with effect from May 3 after being summoned by Callistus Valentine Onaga, the Diocesan Bishop.

They said his priest’s political escapades continue to overshadow his theological obligations on a scale that nurtures unending concerns amongst his senior clerics.

The suspension could have far-reaching consequences for the conventional but unofficial church and state relationship.

Church sources said Mr Mbaka’s latest suspension was being viewed as significant for its undertone.

Church officials admitted Father Mbaka’s Adoration Ministry has been a cash cow for the Enugu Diocese. But they said it is not the first time the fiery priest would face administrative action.
