Face your church business, IPOB tells Mbaka

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has hit out at Rev. Fr Ejike Mbaka of Adoration Prayer Ministries, Enugu, for calling on Igbo elders to take over the leadership of the group.

Mbaka had called on Igbo elders to take over IPOB from the current leadership of the group.

Responding to  the clarion made by Mbaka to Igbo elders, IPOB in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary told the Enugu-based priest to face his church business and stop meddling into the group’s affairs.

The statement read: “In Rev. Mbaka’s video about IPOB, one would have thought that the same Jesus he worships and sells olive oil and pure water in his name, was 1000 years old when he started his ministry that changed the course of human history.

“Now, it stands to reason that the leadership of IPOB from Nnamdi Kanu, to the last Principal Officer of State at the Directorate are above 40 years of age and are older than Mbaka going by what he declared as his real age. So, why is he worried about the age of the leaders of IPOB?

“The same Bible Mbaka is supposedly reading everyday is replete with instances where God raised children, from Joseph, Moses, Samuel, David, Samson, Jephthah etc, to do his will in the lives of his children.” IPOB wondered why God did not use Reuben who was the eldest son of Jacob instead of Joseph who was second to the last. Why did God choose baby Moses, even as he was in a basket to lead his people out of Egypt instead of Moses’ father or another elder from the Hebrew community in Goshen, Egypt?

“Why didn’t God choose one of the elders of Israel to lead the assault on the land of Canaan, but instead, chose Joshua? Why did God choose Samuel instead of the older established priests from the house of Levi to serve in his temple instead of the boy Samuel? “Why did God anoint and make a young David king over Israel when there were ‘elites’ and men of the law he could have chosen and make a king? Why did Jesus the son of a carpenter, at the very tender age of 11 preach against the doctrine and hypocrisy of the all powerful Pharisees and Sadducees and the corruption of the Sanhedrin?”

“Today the world knows only Jesus not the high priest of the temple or anyone from Sanhedrin. The same God has chosen Nnamdi Kanu and his IPOB not anybody from Ohaneze Ndigbo, South East or South South Governors Forum or the so called elites.”
