Mbaka was widely reported to have stated that President Muhammadu Buhari was not to be blamed for the present economic challenges in the country, claiming that “if (former President Goodluck) Jonathan was the president today, the situation would have been worse”. The catholic priest also supported the arrest and detention of several judges across the country.
But in the message to fiery Catholic priest, Omokri wrote: “The wife of an evangelist was beheaded-you kept quiet. Her suspected killers were acquitted-you kept quiet. However, today you have find your voice to defend President Muhammadu Buhari and condemn former President Goodluck Jonathan.
“As a Reverend Father, were you called by God to speak for a man who has 5 media aides and a minister of information all speaking for him or were you called to speak for the poor and powerless children of God who face injustice with no one speaking for them?”
