Rights body to petition Vatican over Mbaka prophesy

13 January 2016, 17:08

Abuja - Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) said calls by the preacher Ejike Mbaka for security personnel to probe the organisation would not deter plans to petition the Vatican to bring him to order.

The call by the church leader is the latest episode in a controversy that culminated in Mbaka alleging a plot to assassinate President Muhammadu Buhari.

“We will proceed to the Vatican with our petition if the Bishops are too afraid to advise Fr Mbaka to abide by his priestly vocation and leave politics for politicians,” said Emmanuel Onwubiko, HURIWA National Coordinator.

“We have never made any threat to drag him to court but to his bishops who are his bosses and to the Roman Curia in the Vatican," Onwubiko said

He said the group’s reaction to his prophesy was done in exercise of their freedom of expression.

“We are not afraid of his so called reaction advising the security officials to seek our view because our view has been clearly expressed and we are indeed ready to send our letter to the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria to demand that Mbaka be called to order.”
