Mbaka shuts Adoration Ministry, proceeds on prayer retreat 


By Monday Ikechukwu in Enugu 

The Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN) and Fiery Enugu based Catholic Priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has proceeded on a 30-day prayer retreat.

Sources said the decision was in line with the directive of the Catholic Bishop of Enugu Diocese, Rt. Rev. Callistus Onaga in view of recent controversies surrounding the priest.

Mbaka also announced the shutting down of the much-celebrated Adoration Ministry for the period of his retreat.

Mbaka had last Sunday also apologised to the bishop for the alleged destruction of facilities at the Bishop’s Court during a protest by his supporters last week when his whereabouts was unknown.

The ministry had sent out a notice early Tuesday morning informing members that Fr. Mbaka was proceeding on a one-month private prayer retreat.

A message to that effect read: “Our Spiritual Director, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka wishes to inform his beloved adorers that he has embarked on a private prayer retreat that will end on 10th June 2021.
“Consequently, no ministry activities shall be held in the ministry ground pending his return.
“He directs that members of the ministry are to observe this period of his retreat as they used to do during the usual January breaks of the ministry, by praying at their homes, being charitable and fasting according to their ability. Adoration! Holy Spirit is our Power.”
