Fiery Catholic Priest and founder of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu (AMEN), Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, who just returned to the ministry after three months in a US Monastery, has predicted tough times for President Muhammadu Buhari over the continuous detention of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, despite a court order to release him.
Mbaka also issued a serious warning to the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, over the Naira redesign and cashless policy which have brought untold hardship on Nigerians.
Mbaka, while delivering a sermon on Sunday at the Adoration Ground, said Buhari and Emefiele will suffer greatly over their actions if they fail to do the right thing and rectify the wrongs they have inflicted.
He specifically warned Buhari of dire consequences if his government continues to keep Kanu in detention perpetually.
“It is only in Nigeria that the court can set somebody free and the government will say ‘No’, keep that person.
“We pray for the full release of Nnamdi Kanu; Ndigbo are suffering for what they know nothing about; students, workers will not go to work; everywhere is locked up on Mondays; our leaders don’t care; it does not concern them; how can you say it does not concern you? But you are a leader; you must care.
“God set someone free and you say the person won’t be free, what God will do to you, you will regret your decision.
“Why the judiciary? There are three arms of government- the executive, the legislature and the judiciary, and one arm will say the other is useless.
“I ask in the name of God and by the power of the Holy Ghost, that our leaders should release Nnamdi Kanu.
“We cannot be distracted by new currency and fuel scarcity and there is a problem – the judiciary is dying.
“If the court can acquit someone and the government will say ‘No’, then the country is finished. It is a coup d’etat against the judiciary and as a man of God, I stand to say, release him.
