Enugu: Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministries Enugu Nigeria (AMEN), has humbly tendered an apology to the Catholic church and in particular, to his immediate superior, Most Rev. Dr. C. V. C. Onaga, Catholic Bishop of Enugu for his mistakes and those of his parishioners during his recent “disappearance saga”.

The cleric apologised while delivering his sermon on Sunday, stating that the church didn’t kidnap him and apologized to whoever misunderstood his earlier statement when he reappeared at New Haven.

“I wish to apologize to whoever that misunderstood my statement at New Haven. I didn’t clap for anybody for destroying anything.

“I am here standing on your behalf and I render my sincere unalloyed apologies to the holy Roman and apostolic Church where I belong and say may the mother church forgive us in anyway we didn’t do it well even in all that I said, where I didn’t say it well, we pray for their forgiveness. I am on your behalf, kneeling down for the church and I say may the church forgive. What has happened has happened we are to save the image of the church and the face of the church and the souls of the son of God we cannot lose my soul because of what has happened.

Mbaka alleged that the search for him by his members was hijacked by non members of his Ministry.

“People started going in and breaking things both Igbos, Hausas and Yorubs, Catholics and non Catholics.

“The church is not my property I belong to the church so I am asking my lord Bishop Onaga and all the priests of Enugu diocese and for everybody to rest the case.”

While condemning the destruction of properties at the Bishop’s Court, Mbaka enjoined his members to obediently join the prayer of reparation called by the Bishop as he didn’t send anybody to destroy anything.

“The prayer of reparation we will join, I didn’t send anybody to destroy anything I have no problem with anybody and I can’t disobey the church —who am I? How can somebody who has been serving the church for 25 years come out to begin to fight the same church”
