Jonathan, wife planning to kill me – Fr. Mbaka

Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka

Ejike Mbaka, the outspoken Enugu-based Catholic priest who used his New Year’s message to call on Nigerian to vote out President Goodluck Jonathan, has alleged that the president and his wife, Patience, were planning to assassinate him.

Mr. Mbaka, who spoke to his teeming congregation at the Adoration Prayer Ground in Enugu, said the Mr. Jonathan might engage some unemployed youth to carry out the task.

“President Jonathan and his wife are planning to kill me,” he said to his visibly shocked followers in a video that has gone viral online.

“Although I sent a letter about this somewhere but I want to say this to the atmosphere. Let me say to the whole world that President Jonathan and his wife, Patience, are planning to assassinate Father Mbaka. It is a known secret, so whoever they want to use, I don’t know. They may not come themselves. They may use these unemployed people. The same people I am speaking for.

“I don’t know why people no longer have the fear of God. “Do they think that killing Father Mbaka will make Jonathan and his wife win the election? Is Mbaka their problem? And a priest asked a question that touched me. He said all this while that Father Mbaka has been supporting Jonathan and his wife, did Buhari and his party make any statement to threaten him?”

He likened Mr. Jonathan to the biblical Pharaoh who resisted all entreaties to allow the people of Israel go from captivity in Egypt to the promise land in Canaan. The cleric said he is the Moses sent by God to appeal to Pharaoh to listen to the word of God.

“I am just trying to tell any Pharaoh that is threatening to kill any Moses to remember what happened in Exodus: 12. After the Passover, the family of Pharaoh cried. They ended in the middle of the Red Sea.”

Mr. Mbaka, who was one of the most outspoken supporters of Mr Jonathan, denied that he ever collected money from the First Lady, Patience Jonathan, when she visited him in the past. He said her offering to the church was also turned down.

He alleged that the President sent him some money through the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, but he refused to touch it.

    I do not know how politics became a business with a man of God, I think pastors in Nigeria should pray for peace to reign in this country not becoming an overnight politician

    • TrueNja

      There is nothing wrong with a man of God to be in politics. It is in the Bible many Prophets in the old testament like Prophets Moses, Elijah, Elisha, Jeremiah, et al criticized kings (equivalent of today’s presidents) who were enslaving Israelites. In our modern age, without active participation of Bishop Tutu in politics, apartheid will still be on going in South Africa. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. of USA was a civil rights fighter who fought racism in America.

      • funke ade

        Everything is wrong with it. A man of God should live by example by leading us in praying for the peace of this country and should pray for a good leader which is Goodluck eberechukwu jonathan, this is 21st century not old testament wateva pleas

      • Original_Raskal

        are you in old testament era? was jesus interested in politics and preaching it?

  • justice

    This man is a rabble rouser and craving publicity. He has no credibility and definetly possessed. Only the naive will pay attention to the rantings of this mischevious and deranged man.

    • dareolu1

      you will still regret this statement…just note it…when did you become a judge for God!

  • pinky minaj

    Hmmm this is serious.. I suspect conspiracy here… how come GEJ has suddenly turned to pharoh.. and who is even planning to kill Mbaka.. maybe he is being monitored by APC members that is why he is blabbing rubbish.. if we trace Buhari’s past regime he should be the one to be termed a pharoh because his evil deeds are open for everybody to see… Mbaka shoud please focus on his biblical teaching and stop putting his eyes into political matters

    Last night, while I was at my modest home in Katsina, relaxing and probably half-awake, I heard the voice of my cousin who was killed in the North in April 2011 during the post-election violence instigated by your loss of the presidential election. With bloodshot sad eyes, my cousin, looking apparition-like, was wailing “Gen Buhari, why why”. My cousin’s name is (or was) Mallam Yusuf Danfulani, a bright young lad originally from Katsina State, who was slaughtered in cold blood and set on fire by youths chanting “Sai Buhari”, like they are again now chanting in 2015.

    Gen Buhari, in case you have forgotten, Yusuf was slaughtered in your name even though he never did any wrong to you, and even voted for you against Dr Jonathan. He lost his life just because the murderers you encouraged by your many hate speeches believed Yusuf to be from middle belt or southern Nigeria, most probably because of his bulky looks and brave, patriotic attempts to prevent the killing of an innocent Youth Corper, Ukeoma Ikechukwu. Even though he cried out in Hausa and Fulfulde, he was still not believed by those you (Buhari) managed to brainwash to see all non-Fulani Nigerians as conspiring to vote against you. In this very case, Yusuf voted for you but his ‘Sai Buhari’ killers never believed he did. Like you, Gen Buhari, the mob was baying for the blood of innocents.

    If not for Yusuf’s best friend who was with him and was himself nearly killed, we would not have recognized his charred body that was burnt beyond recognition. And thanks to the same friend for recounting to us the little he could make out at the last moments of Yusuf’s life, the agony he passed through and the most important words he uttered before he gave up. It is the same words I heard him utter last night from the grave: ‘Gen Buhari, why why’. Yet, to this day, you (Buhari) have not cared to apologize or show any remorse, but you instead offered lame excuses for the bloodletting you had instigated, and still instigate. I now ask you this: Gen Buhari, must you always shade blood, like you started doing from 1983, to rule Nigeria? Do you recall how you killed Brigadier Bako in 1983 just so you could take power by force from Shehu Shagari?

    General Buhari, Ukeoma Ikechukwu himself was reported missing that same day Yusuf was murdered by your supporters, and finally confirmed dead the following day when his charred remains was discovered in a hooded area. Apparently, your supporters had dragged him out of the open and tortured him before finally snuffing life out of him. Like my cousin, Yusuf, Ukeoma was very young and an innocent. Unlike Dr. Jonathan, they were not contesting against you. Yet, when they were killed, part of Nigeria was killed with them; the same Nigeria that you are now angrily campaigning to rule.

    Yusuf and Ukeoma were not alone. Six other innocent Youth Corpers were also murdered in Bauchi, where you Buhari, polled 1,315,209 votes (almost 82 per cent), defeating Dr Jonathan who scored 258,404 votes and did not even hit the 25 per cent mark. The corps members were reportedly chased to a police station where they sought refuge. But the rioters, who were raving mad with bloodlust and chanting “Sai Buhari”, overran the station and murdered the young Nigerians in cold blood. So, Gen Buhari, as you can see from the Bauchi result and it’s aftermath, your supporters even shade blood when you win; still you have no qualms. Today, you are prancing around the nation, arrogant and angry as usual, behaving like you have already won the election; and thus setting up another bloodletting if you are not announced winner.

    The story of Obinna Okpokiri is as heart-wrenching as Yusuf’s. The 27-year-old was butchered and burnt to ashes, in the service of his fatherland. Okpokiri’s own circumstances were as gruesome as they could be. He had run to the Corpers’ Lodge as the rampaging ‘Sai Buhari’ rioters targeted Youth Corper polling officers recruited by INEC for the election. As painful death loomed, the young Nigerians contemplated fleeing to the barracks. But they were not lucky enough. Your ‘Sai Buhari’ supporters caught up with them, slaughtered and set them on fire. Like Yusuf, these innocents are human beings and future leaders on the last laps of fulfilling their national duty before moving on to a bright future. But it was not to be because, in your name, Gen Buhari, they were slaughtered, sliced, soaked in petrol and scorched. Reduced to ashes in minutes and in the most callous fashion by those that are not better citizens or humans than them.

    General Buhari, while you are now busy inciting another violence, please bear in mind that in 2011, your supporters turned violent in whole 12 northern states as they burned the homes, vehicles, and properties of innocent Nigerians, some of whom are also Muslims and Northerners like you and my cousin Yusuf. Your ‘Sai Buhari’ supporters also targeted and killed Christians and members of southern Nigerian ethnic groups, who were seen as supporting the PDP, and they burnt churches across the north. One particular attack in Bauchi stood out as most heart-breaking. According to Human Rights Watch, on April 17 in Giade, a rural town in northern Bauchi, ‘Sai Buhari’ mobs attacked youth corps members in the town. The Corpers, who were mostly from Yoruba, ran to the local police station to seek refuge, but the mobs stormed the police station. The mob killed the police officer on duty and burned down the police station. They raped two of the female
    youth corps members and then hacked them to death with machetes, along with five male youth corps members. In total, rioters killed ten youth corps members in that town alone.

    A lecturer at the Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic, Zaria, Kaduna State, described to Human Rights Watch how a mob of Muslims chanting “Change, Sai Buhari” attacked and killed several Christian students, a Christian lecturer and four Muslim students suspected of being PDP sympathizers on April 17: He said “Between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m., they entered the school chanting slogans and shouting: “Where are the Christians and Muslims that supported the ruling party?” They had painted their faces black and were shouting that they needed “change”, the Congress for Progressive Change campaign slogan. The mob had all sorts of weapons – machetes, sticks, and clubs. They started breaking the glass on the buildings. The students ran away but the mob pursued them into the staff quarters and they had nowhere to go. The mob beat them to death. The lecturer they killed was Yoruba“.

    Finally, Gen Buhari, let me end this letter by asking you this question: When are you going to apologize to me, to Yusuf’s aged parents, to Ukeoma’s parents, to parents of all innocents murdered by your brainwashed supporters, to Nigeria and to mankind? And here is Yusuf again, asking you from the grave: “Gen Buhari, why why”.

    Ejike Mbaka, see how you’ve transmogrified from a revered Catholic padre to a white garment ‘prophet’ of doom and gloom, who now peddle pigeon and other animals as your voodoo paraphernalia. There’s something sinisterly similar between you and hoodwinkly Bro Jeroboam of the celebrated play of prof Wole Soyinka. They want to kill you. Really!? You’re a fallen angel, a crushed star, a political jobber who have utilized the sacred name of Christ to bamboozle the extremely gullible masses, whose thirst for wait-and-get miracle they’ve hoped to satisfy, albeit on that false and unholy fountain named Adoration Ministry that you preside over. Ejikeme, relax nobody is planning to kill you, you are only acting out a script.

  • basil edoma

    Mbaka who made you a divine counsellor Mbaka??? During the re-election bid of the then governor of enugu state chimaroke nnamani, you vowed that if he won you will quit the cassock and stop being a priest. Chimaroke won his re-election and you were still there in your regalia.. my point being that Mbaka shouldn’t delve into politics… all declarations he has made towards political bids are all false and as such should stop making a nuisance of himself….

  • Godfrey Etokebe

    Dear Mbaka,
    I think that you are OVERPRICING Yourself and Your worth.

  • Lemmuel Odjay

    Suppose this guy is right. Nobody gave any thought to that? I’d look up the contact numbers and email address of Ekweremadu in my NASS file. I’d contact him and ask about Jonathan’s bribe money which Mbaka rejected. Until then, sai anjima…

  • Moe

    Relax Fr Mbaka…if Patence wanted to kill you, you’d be dead by now.
    For your peace of mind, take some precautions…..go and borrow some clothes and a cow from a fulani man…and generally blend in until the 29th when Jonathan and his wife will be out of Aso Villa

  • Ossy Oranozie

    Thank you, Father. Please continue to pray for the family of the kidnap victim, Mr. Emmanuel Chukwuemeka Udemba (https://emmanuelchukwuemeka.wo…). I hope that the incoming president Buhari will soon pick interest and order an honest and transparent investigation into the disappearance of this good man. The wife and children of this man have terribly suffered for over three years now. They still have not known Mr. Udemba’s whereabouts, what has become of him and all those behind it. Thanks and God bless you.

  • Malik Isah

    So sad

  • pheliciti

    So true….but more painful is the fact that there’s almost nothing we can do about it. Societal pressure force the middle class to try ‘do the best’ for their offspring; the migrate to give birth like penguins but unwittingly lay the foundations of old age loneliness.

    • Nosa

      How true.. back then if you went to kings college and federal boys college you were like a god… They were no private schools. To be a school head master was like being a member king

  • Ej Gray

    On the contrary, posterity will judge the parents for not giving their children the best they could while they could to enable them access opportunities they may not be exposed to by remaining in Nigeria. I would rather be alone in old age knowing i have given my children the right platform to thrive and attain greatness than be surrounded by mediocrity in the name of patriotism and “company” in old age. The latter in my humble opinion, would be selfishness on my part.
