Catholic priest, Ejike Mbaka alleged threats to his life after 'attack' on President Jonathan

Ejike Mbaka, founder of the Adoration Ministry Enugu (AMEN), has alleged threats to his life after his scorching crossover message charging President Goodluck Jonathan to step down for Muhammadu Buhari, candidate of the All Progressives Congress in next month’s presidential election.

But speaking at a church service on Sunday, he assured his congregation that he was not afraid of death, saying he had already delivered the message he was told to.
“Tell them I am not afraid of them; I have said what I was asked to say; the only word I have for them is Isaiah 54:15, 17: ‘Surely they shall gather, but because the gathering is not of God they shall scatter. No weapon fashioned against me shall prosper.’”
He denied rumours that he was paid by Buhari to deliver the message, saying he had never personally met the retired general and he was only working in the interest of the country.
“I only delivered the message I was given and I stand by that message because the future of this country is bleak with Jonathan on the saddle,” he said.
Mbaka, one of the most revered preachers in eastern Nigeria, revealed that the first lady, Patience Jonathan has refused to honour his calls.
“When she came here, I told her to give me her number so that I could give her messages, but thrice she refused,” he said.

“It was later she told one of the pastors with her to give me his number. Before that message (On December 31), I had called the number for two weeks but it was always the personal assistant to the pastor that picked the calls.”
In 2006, Mbaka was attacked by gunmen who he said were just out to assassinate him.

Earlier in the week, he released a message in Enugu titled ‘From Goodluck to badluck’, urging Jonathan to step down for Buhari.

But earlier in November 2014 at a church service, the same Mbaka had defended Jonathan against series of public criticism, with the first lady in attendance.
