The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, has declared the Adoration Ministry cleric, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka missing.
The OYC President-General, Okwu Nnabuike issued the alert on Wednesday, following several abortive attempts to locate him or speak with him since Tuesday.
Mr Nnabuike said: “His aides haven’t seen or heard from him since Tuesday, according to our sources.
“Calls put to his mobile line have also remained unanswered; this has now prompted us to issue this alarm as we would not take it lightly should anything untoward happen to him.
“We are giving the Federal Government 48 hours to produce the priest, else they should be ready to face Igbo youths. They were dining and wining with him all along and now that he told the truth, they are no longer comfortable with him.
“Let nothing happen to Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka. It will not be in anybody’s interest,” the group warned.
It was also learnt that the youths had summoned all their members to the Adoration ground.
The message inviting the youths to the Adoration ground, obtained by the newspaper read, “Important!
“Good morning friends and well-wishers. Please if you know you stand for justice and you do not want the lone voice that speaks for the poor in this country to be silenced, gather at Adoration ground let’s go for a protest at the Bishops court.
“Fr. Mbaka is nowhere to be found. He went yesterday to answer the Bishop’s call and up till now, he’s not taking his calls. Let’s gather! SSG.”
Mr Mbaka was recently in the news for criticising President Muhammadu Buhari over the growing insecurity in the country.
