Fr Ejike Mbaka Reacts to Purported attack on BBC Reporters
Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka has debunked the purported attack on BBC Reporters
In Mbaka’s official position on the matter, the Adoration spokesman, Mr Maximus Ugwuoke, both Fr. Mbaka, and the entire Adoration family were not aware of the presence of the BBC team on the Adoration ground to interview the Spiritual leader.
Ugwuoke narrated that what took place was that the BBC team swooped on Fr Mbaka in espionage with a detracting priest from Anambra state and were confronted by the AMEN security operatives.
Ugwuoke insisted that the BBC was never invited to interview the Adoration spiritual leader.
According to Ugwuoke: “We make haste to state that the report was a carefully crafted mendacious narrative calculated to tarnish the image of Fr Mbaka who in his amiable nature could not have done or directed any of those alleged acts of assault on the BBC team or anyone as alleged against him.
“An eye witness account of what happened reveals that one Fr Obiekeze (Cajetan) who estranged himself from the ministry and made a viral video with BBC recently abusing Fr Mbaka and his perceived romance with President Mohammadu Buhari, came to join Fr Mbaka at the altar during his last Wednesday’s weekly ministry program.
“The said Fr Obiekezie persistently insisted that Fr Mbaka should grant him an interview at his altar. Fr Mbaka in his loving, forgiving and welcoming nature embraced the said priest but the priest demand to interview him at the altar wondering when the said priest became a media practitioner and the organization he was working for.
“Unknown to anyone in the ministry, the said priest came with some persons with an unknown identity who were secretly recording the day’s ministry program until they were accosted by the ministry security suspecting them to be assassins on a surveillant mission. The said ministry security seized the equipment of the strange fellows and sought to know their identities.
“Later in the evening after Fr Mbaka was through with the program and retired to the parish house to continue his consultation with worshippers waiting to see him, altercations between the fellows and the security men at Fr Mbaka’s parish house drew Fr Mbaka’s attention to them and his timely intervention helped to save the situation.
“Fr Mbaka was surprised when the unknown fellows identified themselves as coming from BBC with Fr Obiekezie. Surprised by such obvious betrayal and a stage-managed visit from a fellow priest, Fr Mbaka directed that every of their seized equipment is returned to them and made sure no one hurt either the priest or the unknown visitors he surreptitiously came with.
