Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka says the Buhari administration may begin to arrest priests in the country.
Mbaka, the Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), suggested that clerics speaking the truth to power risk persecution and incarceration should things continue on this downward spiral.
“Suffering has become part of our history, but it will not continue like this forever,” the Buhari ally-turned critic stated.
“Everybody cannot be dumb at the same time. Nigerians should not be suffering.”
He lamented the fate of ordinary citizens and accused the nation’s leadership of “wickedness”.
Mbaka recalled that at a time, there was no banditry, kidnapping, and terrorism in Nigeria, except hooliganism which was at a “miniature level”.
“At that time, leadership was not about money.
“I’m seeing a time, if my brother priests do not begin to speak, we will hear that Bishop A, B, C, D has been arrested and handcuffed,” he warned.
