The Department for State Security, DSS, has affirmed that the “missing” controversial cleric, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka, is not in its custody.
A huge protest is presently ongoing in front of the Catholic Bishop’s court in Enugu where his supporters gathered, chanting and asking Bishop Callistus Onaga to produce Fr. Mbaka.
He was said to have gone missing two days ago after he reportedly went to see the Bishop.
The spokesman of the DSS, Peter Afunaya, however, told reporters that the service was not in possession of Fr. Mbaka.
Afunaya said: “Rev Fr Mbaka is not with the DSS. The DSS did not pick him up, please.”
Recall that the Federal government had alleged that some religious and political leaders were planning to overthrow the Mohammadu Buhari-led government.
