The Adoration Ministry Enugu has condemned the alleged assassination attempt on its spiritual leader, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka.
According to a statement issued to Daily Post, the assassins allegedly shot at the controversial priest on Thursday, December 6, 2018.
Mbaka came under fire recently over his declaration that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar will fail in his presidential bid.
The statement reads: “It is with rude shock and utter surprise that we received the report of the attempted assassination plot of the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria last made Thursday evening by some unknown gunmen who fired gun shots at him on his way in Enugu.
“This incident has added to several other assassination plots targeted at Fr Mbaka since after the first plot that was carried out on him on his way from the Bishop’s house where he had gone to answer an impromptu call by his Bishop during the regime of Governor Chimaroke Nnamani of Enugu State .
“This assassination plot against Fr Mbaka is coming barely few days after the 2018 Harvest and Bazaar of the Ministry whereat Fr Mbaka had come under massive media attack for asking Peter Obi, the PDP Vice Presidential Candidate for the 2019 General election who attended the Bazaar programme, to make public his support or donation for the Church Project of the Ministry.
