According to a report by SaharaReporters, some supporters of Rev Father Ejike Mbaka, the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu on Wednesday, detained journalists working with Punch and Authority newspapers on the church premises.
 
A source, who spoke with SaharaReporters, said the journalists were detained for two hours by Mbaka's supporters on Wednesday.

They alleged that the journalists, Mike Ubani, Editor of Authority newspaper and Raphael Ede of Punch newspaper were there to spy for Bishop Calistus Onaga of the Catholic Diocese of Enugu.
 
One of the journalists told SaharaReporters, “They detained us for two hours. I only went there to find about Father Mbaka's whereabouts but I was detained along with another journalist. I pleaded with them that I am a journalist but they didn't listen. The editor of Authority newspaper that tried to plead on my behalf was also detained. It is very sad. They accused us of spying for the Bishop. They didn't listen to anything we had to say.”

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, OYC, on Wednesday raised an alarm over the whereabouts of Father Mbaka.

The Catholic cleric recently criticised President Muhammadu Buhari and called for his impeachment over the growing insecurity in the country.
  
However, the President-General of Ohanaeze Youth Council raised the alarm that the priest is missing.

The President-General of OYC, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, in a statement on Wednesday said Mbaka was last seen on Tuesday and that efforts to locate him had failed.
  
Meanwhile, some parishioners had earlier accused Bishop Calistus Onaga of the Catholic Diocese of Enugu of being responsible for the cleric's disappearance.
 
They stormed the Bishop’s Court, demanding that Bishop Onaga should produce the cleric.
 
They alleged that the Bishop had something to do with Mbaka's disappearance.
