– Father Ejike Mbaka has warned the south-east against seceding from Nigeria
– Mbaka said there will be more trouble for the Igbos if they eventually actualise Biafra
– He also argued that south-east is not being marginalised
Enugu Catholic priest, Father Ejike Mbaka, warned the people of south-east Nigeria against seceding from Nigeria as that may lead to more trouble for them.
Mbaka, who said he disagrees with the claims that Igbos are being marginalised said he is sure that if Biafra is eventually actualized, the people will face more trouble than they are currently facing in Nigeria.
He said: “If you think we have trouble in Nigeria now, we will see trouble in Biafra.
“No Anambra man would let an Enugu man be president, no Imo man would let an Abakaliki man be president.”
Mbaka also warned that secession will affect the Igbos more than it will affect people from other tribes.
He said: “No Hausa person owns property in Igboland. No Yoruba person owns property in Igboland.
“But 60% of businesses in northern Nigeria are owned by Igbos. 40% of businesses in western Nigeria are owned by Igbos.
“Go to Sabon Gari in Kano and see what Igbos own there.”
Mbaka said the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu’s followers are “children of the poor” who know little of the implications of secession.
Meanwhile,plusmilang.com earlier reported that a cleric, Emmanuel Obinma, said that Nnamdi Kanu, is more prophetic than Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka.
Obinma the spiritual director of Holy Ghost Adoration Ministry in Uke, Anambra state said, Kanu is more important to the people of the south-east than Mbaka.
speaking during one of his service, Obinma said, Mbaka has being a thorn in the flesh for the people of Biafra and Igbos in general.
