Few days after Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka said he would support pro-Biafran agitators only if “their sponsors take the lead in any protest,” the General Overseer of Mount Zion Faith Global Liberation Ministries (a.k.a By Fire By Fire), Nnewi, Anambra State, Rt. Rev. Bishop Abraham Chris Udeh has called on Catholic Bishops to call the fiery priest to order.
Bishop Udeh said Fr. Mbaka was dancing to the dictates of those he described as the ememies of the Igbos who also allegedly sponsored him to work against his Igbo brothers. He claimed that Fr. Mbaka allegedly worked against former President Goodluck Jonathan during the 2015 general elections leading to his loss, claiming he had started to work against the actualization of Biafra. He said
“It appears you people (the media) are afraid to tell Mbaka the truth. Why should he be working against Igbo interest and everybody will keep quiet. Even the Catholic Bishops do not want to call him to order. He is not talking prophetically. Is the Buhari he projected to succeed Jonathan working for the interest of Ndigbo? Can’t we reason? That is the question we should ask ourselves”,
He noted that Fr. Mbaka would live to see Biafra stand. The bishop said he will continue to support the agitation until the Igbo marginalization was addressed.
He lambasted some Igbo leaders for keeping quiet over the arrest and continued detention of the Director of Radio Biafra, Mr Nnamdi Kanu
“because they are contented with their political positions and the crumbs from the table in Abuja.” He said those politicians were only after their own pockets and not the interest of the Igbos.
