Controversial Catholic priest of Enugu Adoration Ministry, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, yesterday, alleged that there was an assassination attempt on him in Enugu, saying it was politically motivated.
Mbaka’s spokesman, Maximus Ugwuoke, said the incident took place on Thursday. Meanwhile, Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State, who was a beneficiary of Mbaka’s blessings last Sunday, has called for investigation of the allegation. The alleged assassination attempt came on the heels of the backlash against the Catholic priest following his statement that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and his running mate, Mr Peter Obi, will end in disgrace after Obi failed to donate to his church during a visit last week.
