Mbaka's Followers Protest Against Over Ban On Adoration Ministry

Members of the Adoration Ministry on Sunday embarked on a massive protest against the Catholic Bishop of Enugu Diocese, Calistus Onaga for ordering the closure of the ministry.

Onaga had banned Catholics from attending the Adoration Ministry following Mbaka’s recent outburst against Labour party Presidential Candidate, Peter Obi.

Mbaka had accepted the decision of the church on Saturday, announcing that the ministry's programmes including Sunday services have been stopped till further notice.

Despite the announcement, thousands of adoration faithful who were not pleased with the development thronged to the worship centre on Sunday morning, demanding the  removal of the Catholic Bishop over his role in the closure of the ministry.

The protesters who were chanting anti Onaga songs also attacked the Bishop verbally insisting that he must go.

It was also learned that security agencies have been mobilised to guard the residence of the Bishop to forestall a repeat of last year's attack on his residence by Mbaka's followers over a similar incident.
