Catholic Diocese of Enugu lifts ban on Mbaka worship ministry
The Catholic Diocese of Enugu has lifted the ban which prevented all Catholic priests and faithful from attending the worship ministry, Enugu led by the controversial priest, Reverend Fr. Ejike Mbaka.
Recall that the bishop of the diocese, Most. Reverend Callistus Onaga had issued the indefinite ban on June 18, 2022 in a letter he personally signed to all clerics, religious and lay faithful, preventing all Catholic faithful and clergy in the diocese from having anything to do with the Ministry of Adoration in Mbaka.
The ban came after Mbaka’s scathing remarks against Labor Party presidential candidate Peter Obi.
The Nation reported that three months later, the Director of Communications for the Catholic Diocese of Enugu, Rev. Fr. Benjamin Achi confirmed that the ban had been lifted.
He said that henceforth masses would begin to be held at the ground of adoration.
“I can confirm to you that the ban has been lifted. This is the situation now. There will be a mass there from this Sunday and the following Sundays,” he said.
Mbaka, who also confirmed the development, said;
“To the Glory of God, Enugu Nigeria Amen Worship Ministry, begins on Sunday, October 2, 2022 with a 10 a.m. Mass at Umuchigbo Iji Nike Emene Enugu State Worship Ground.
“May God miraculously bless you as you come to worship God with us.
“Rev Fr, Enter the Force”.
