The Continued Clampdown On Easterners Is An Effort In Futility—Rev. Mbaka

Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka, the religious chief of Adoration Ministries, Enugu has been extra vocal than some other common clergyman within the South East, particularly because the abduction and extraordinary rendition of the chief of the Indigenous Folks of Biafra(IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu from Kenya. Mazi Kanu has been below the DSS detention since over six months now as a result of, the Nigerian authorities have refused to present him a fair trial. And Mbaka has joined his voice severally to name for his launch. And this name, accompanied by common proclamations and warnings have stirred reactions on each social media and from the Division of State Service(DSS).

Recall that Father Mbaka had made daring up to now to warn in opposition to the militarization of the South East, the wanton killings, and abduction of southeast youths and IPOB agitators, stating that it might be counterproductive. In the present day, we are able to but see that many are nonetheless getting arrested and detained by the DSS, particularly in Imo state for no simple trigger. Nevertheless, it has modified nothing to this point, similar to the clergyman warned. The agitation for self-determination has continued unquenched.

The sick therapies and exhausting handedness with which deal with points regarding the folks of the South East will stay fruitless. In fact, it’s a clear indication that the agitation by IPOB is justified. President Buhari led federal authorities of Nigeria

The religious chief of Adoration Ministries, Enugu, On the thirty first of December 2021, the eve of the New Yr, Father Mbaka understood that the unconditional launch of Mazi Nnamdi kanu, the chief of IPOB wiĺl be the one factor that can restore calmness within the area, spent a greater chunk of his time praying for the embattled chief of IPOB. This very did by the Reverend, led to his DSS’ second invitation. And the query is “why would the DSS invite Mbaka for merely praying for somebody”?

This once more goes on to obviously present that the folks of South East are handled as second-class residents in Nigeria. It additionally exhibits that for a really very long time, the South East have been with out management or credible illustration, till the emergence of IPOB. If our non secular and conventional leaders could be molested and mistreated, it speaks a lot of how little Nigeria leaders esteem Easterners. A few of these abnormalities is what IPOB and Nnamdi kanu is agitating to appropriate.The Continued Clampdown


The Nigeria DSS doesn’t solely harass and arrest clergy males from the Japanese area, in addition they invade our locations of worship, simply to intimate everybody into submission. Couple of weeks in the past some closely armed and masked males, who had been later revealed to be operatives of Imo state DSS department invaded and desecrated an Anglican Church in the course of a church service, taking pictures sporadically contained in the church compound stuffed with unarmed and terrified worshippers, simply in try to arrest a person whose each residential and workplace addresses are well-known to anybody who cares to know. This are among the conditions we Easterners have been pressured to stay with and endure for many years now. These are some the issues resulting in the widespread agitation within the previous Japanese area. And it will get extra annoying if you ponder that on this similar Nigeria, terrorists are being handled with youngsters gloves, awarded scholarships, recruited into the navy and a few Northern clergy males are allowed to interfaces and communicate for bandits and terrorists on all issues of their selection.

Fortunately, the harassment and intimidation of Father Mbaka didn’t cease him from sounding what many known as the ultimate warning. He boldly warned that any try by the North to retain energy come 2023 will result in the collapse of Nigeria. He went forward to warn the Buhari authorities to be very cautious with how they deal with the case of Mazi Nnamdi kanu as a result of the choice they make will both make or break Nigeria.

Many political analysts and commentators have urged that the Buhari authorities ought to launch Mazi Nnamdi Kanu unconditionally to revive peace and stability within the previous Japanese area, however it’s but to be seen if Buhari is definitely all for peace and stability within the East. His response to this case shall be a transparent pointer to what he(Buhari) truly feels for the East.
