Catholic Church Declares 7 - Day - Attonement Prayer Over Invasion Of Cathedral By Mbaka's Followers

Enugu diocese of the Catholic Church appeared to have set a week aside for prayer of attonement over what the church considered as "heinous invasion of place of sanctity" and Bishop Callitus Onaga residence by followers of Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka on Wednesday.

Tension had yesterday trailed about 24 hours of Mbaka's ‘disappearance' which upon surfacing later, the fiery Reverend Father viewed it as an incarceration allegedly by the Enugu Catholic Bishop, Bisho Onaga.

Mbaka said there was even plans to keep him incommunicado for as much as 30 days, ostensibly to shut his mouth following his recent comments on President Muhammadu Buhari and leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

Consequently, as the tension enveloped Enugu, particularly at the ecclesiastical premises of Bishop Onaga and the Holy Ghost Cathedral, persons suspected to Mbaka's Followers, allegedly looted and destroyed sacred items inside the Cathedral. 

For the better part of Wednesday Mbaka's followers also went to town to allege that the SSS had arrested him without evidence when  they did not see him and there was also no word regarding his whereabout. 

These worried and impatient flocks in a fit of a rage, especially persons believed to be congregants of the
Adoration ministry of Rev. Fr. Mbaka, vandalized the window panes of Bishop Onaga's residence among other places.

But reacting to the deplorable occurrence, the Enugu doicese of the Catholic church declared a - 7 - day attonement prayer over the "violent invasion of the cathedral and desecration of the sacred altar" by followers of Mbaka.

A notice said to be calling for the attonement prayer was signed by Bishop Onaga and planned prayer begins tomorrow, Friday.
