Enugu-based Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has claimed that President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife, Patience, were planning to kill him for opposing the President’s re-election.Mbaka made the allegations during a recent sermon he delivered at his church.
He said the Jonathans’ plan to assassinate him shows “the president no longer has the fear of God.”According toPunch,Mbaka further stated:
“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 threatened him?…
I am just trying to tell any Pharaoh that is threatening to kill any Moses to remember what happened in Exodus chapter 12. After the Passover, the family of Pharaoh cried. They ended in the middle of the Red Sea.”
He also denied allegations that Patience Jonathan gave him money when she visited his church. According to reports, he noted that “although President Jonathan dropped money for him through Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, he left the money with Ekweremadu and his wife. He also said that Patience Jonathan’s offering to the church was also rejected.”
