The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has faulted the Spiritual leader of the Adoration Ministries in Enugu, Rev Fr Mbaka’s claim that a more elderly figure should lead the Biafra agitation.
IPOB made this known through a statement released by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, in reaction to Mbaka’s recent comments on the pro-Biafra group.
The statement questioned Mbaka’s knowledge of the Bible, and told the priest to let the group be. The statement also referred to the priest as “Usman Mbaka”
In defence of its position, the group reeled out a host of names from the Bible, who held leadership positions at young ages.
The statement said, “From what Usman Mbaka said in his video about IPOB, you would have thought that the same Jesus he worships, 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.
“Every morning and night, this Fulani fake miracle selling superstitious idol worshiper kneels down to ask Jesus that died at the youthful age of 33 for money, protection and even more fools to attend his adoration ground for prayer to the same 33 year old saviour.
“You see, Mbaka does not know the word of God, neither is he educated enough to understand historical events. It is fair to conclude therefore, that Usman Mbaka is not a priest of God. If Mbaka evidentially and demonstrably is not a servant of God, he must, therefore, be a child of Satan and servant of Baal.
“Why didn’t God use Reuben who was the eldest son of Jacob instead of Joseph who is 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 Canaan but instead chose Joshua?
“Why did God choose Samuel instead of the older more 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 a king from?
“Why was 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 or the corruption of the Sanhedrin?”
The statement reads further, “On a temporal note, the greatest general in recorded history is Alexander the Great of Macedonian. Guess what, he conquered all the known world before the age of 30 which to Usman Mbaka is too young an age to be considered an elite.”
The group noted that most Igbo elders cared little about the development of the South East, and as such, were not qualified to lead the struggle.
“To him an Igbo elite is a corrupt disease ridden inconsequential Igbo homosexual trading his body for political favours from one Hausa Fulani town to another.
“This is the type of God forsaken cowards and people Usman Mbaka want to lead the resurgent Biafran agitation. The same old men that did nothing about Igbo presidency until IPOB came along, they did not build second Niger Bridge, they did not build Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway, neither did they use their elitism to build Onitsha-Enugu Expressway either.
“The question Usman Mbaka must answer is, what has any of the men he is proposing should lead IPOB done for Biafra? Why didn’t these ‘elites’ as he calls them rise up and agitate for Biafra before Nnamdi Kanu came, that is before God determined that Nnamdi Kanu should come; who stopped them?
“Nnamdi Kanu, Uche Mefor, Clifford Iroanya, Emma Nmezu, Nnennaya Anya, Ikenna Nwanonenyi, Chika Edoziem, Uchenna Asiegbu and many others are more educated, sophisticated, patriotic and more enlightened than all the Igbo elites put together.”
