The Department of State Services has said that the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, was not in its custody.
Spokesperson for DSS, Peter Afunnaya, made this known on Wednesday.
He said, “He (Mbaka) is not with the DSS,” Afunnaya said.
Controversy trailed the whereabouts of the cleric on Wednesday with a reported protest in Enugu State over Mbaka’s alleged arrest by yet-to-be-identified security operative.
When officials of the Diocese of Enugu, to which Fr. Mbaka belongs, were contacted, some of them said he was not missing while others said they cannot confirm his whereabouts.
