The Department of State Services (DSS) has come out to sat that the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, is not in its custody.
Spokesperson for DSS, Peter Afunnaya, made this known in a terse statement on Wednesday.
“He (Mbaka) is not with the DSS, please,” Afunnaya wrote.
There was controversy about the whereabouts of the fiery cleric on Wednesday with a reported protest in Enugu State over Mbaka’s alleged arrest by yet-to-be-identified security operative.
VANTAGE NEWS had earlier reported that Mbaka and the Presidency recently had a face off over the security challenges in the country.
Mbaka, who backed President Muhammadu Buhari during the 2015 and 2019 elections recently made a U-turn, asking Buhari to resign or be impeached for not doing enough to tackle widespread insecurity in the country.
But the Presidency made a revelation thereafter, saying Mbaka has suddenly become a critic because Buhari refused to offer contracts to his allies.
Reacting to the accusation, Mbaka admitted that he led three security experts to the President to proffer solutions to the insecurity ravaging the country even as he said that those people were not known to him.
He however challenged the FG attacking the messenger, they should rather challenge the truth.
