The Catholic Bishop of Enugu urges a week long prayers for the protesters who vandalized the church premises.
On Wednesday supporters of Father Ejike Mbaka marched in protest to the residence of the bishop, the priest’s superior, after the priest reportedly went missing.
They demanded to see the priest, who had been absent during the weekly Mass at his Adoration Ministry’s grounds in Emene area of the city.

“Over and above this, they brutally vandalised the diocesan bishop’s residence, the cathedral parish house and the secretariat building complex.
The bishop has since called for “atonement and reparation” for the desecration of “the holy altar of sacrifice” by the protesters.
