The Chairman of the South East Governors Forum and governor of Ebonyi State, Chief David Umahi has expressed great shock over the alleged assassination attempt on the life of the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka and called on security agencies to unravel the circumstances surrounding the alleged attack on the Catholic Priest.
Umahi in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Emmanuel Uzor and made available to LEADERSHIP Sunday described the alleged attack on the priest as highest provocation of man against God and called for full scale investigation to unravel those behind the attempted assasination.
He said the attempted assasination of the Catholic priest shows how low men have descended on their inordinate quest for power and silence the truth and thanked God for saving the life of Fr Mbaka while calling on Inspector General of Police to dispatch a crack team to investigate the alleged attack.
Governor Umahi further warned politicians who are so desperate about 2019 general election to play by the rules while insisting that nobody’s political ambition is worth blood of any citizen, adding that they should know that it is dangerous to touch God’s anointed or to do harm to His Prophet.
Similarly, members of the Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria, has also expressed shock over the alleged attempted assassination plot on the life of their spiritual director.
Leadership gathered that the assassination attempt was carried out on Thursday evening by some unknown gun men who fired gun shots within the Enugu metropolis.
Members of the ministry who spoke on grounds on anonymity said that the 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 .
The assassination plot according to our source said that it may not be unconnected to the 2018 Harvest and Bazaar of the Ministry where 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.
