Fiery Enugu-based Catholic priest Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has accused President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife, Patience, of being after his life.
Mbaka, in a new video on Youtube viewed by The Nation yesterday, said his offence was his opposition to the President re-election. In the 21-minute sermon given during one of his preachings, Fr. Mbaka said the plot was recently revealed to him.
The popular Adoration Ministries preacher said his support for Jonathan in the last six years did not attract death threats or condemnation from opposition politicians. He denied allegations that he received money from Mrs. Joanthan last during her visit to his church. Fr. Mbaka disclosed that Mr. Jonathan dropped money for him but he rejected the money.
He said: “Do they think that killing father Mbaka will make Jonathan and his wife win the election? Is Mbaka their problem? And the other priest asked a question that touched me. All these while that Fr. Mbaka has been supporting Jonathan and his wife, did Buhari and his party make any statement that threatened him?
For over six years, afterwards, I sent a letter to somewhere but I want to send this message to the atmosphere, let it now be known to the whole world that President Goodluck Jonathan and Patience are planning to assassinate Fr. Mbaka.
“It is a known secret. However they are planning it, I do not know. Whomever they want to use, I do not know. They will not do it by themselves. They will use the unemployed people. The same people I am speaking for.
“Just like in the days of Chimaroke, I came here one day announcing this type of thing. That they are planning to attack the ministry. People said it cannot happen. One night, 7th March, they struck.
“I don’t know why people are no longer afraid of God. And the other Priest said maybe it’s because they believe that the Bishops of the country joined them to threaten Fr. Mbaka onto sanction because he spoke against the ills of the government. Why should Jonathan’s name be mentioned?
“Why Moses was asked by God to go and tell Pharaoh to ‘let my people go”, did Moses not do the work?
Am just trying to warn any Pharaoh that is threatening to kill any Moses to remember what happened in Exodus 12. After the Passover the family of Pharaoh cried and the remnant of the tears got a conclusion in Exodus 14:27 in the middle of the Red Sea.
”Let them leave Mbaka alone. The so-called money they are boasting that they gave to Fr. Mbaka, I have severally here on this altar put my hands to tell the whole world that it is true if it is true.
“Because Ekweremadu, the Deputy Senate President came with one little bag containing some money and the money was rejected.”
