The Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has berated the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration over the suffering in the land.
In a sermon, the fiery government critic claimed that the Buhari administration may arrest priests in the country for speaking the truth to power risk.
He however stated that despite the risk of persecution and incarceration, clergymen must not remain dumb.
“Suffering has become part of our history, but it will not continue like this forever,” Mbaka said.
“Everybody cannot be dumb at the same time. Nigerians should not be suffering.”
He lamented the fate of ordinary citizens and accused the nation’s leadership of “wickedness”.
Mbaka recalled that at a time, there was no banditry, kidnapping, and terrorism in Nigeria, except hooliganism which was at a “miniature level”.
“At that time, leadership was not about money,” Father Mbaka added.
“I’m seeing a time, if my brother priests do not begin to speak, we will hear that Bishop A, B, C, D has been arrested and handcuffed.”
Mbaka who had recently started tackling a government he helped get to power was recently invited by the Security of State Services (SSS).
