Muhammadu Buhari is surrounded by thugs and criminals who consistently feed him lies, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has said in a rare attack on the Nigerian president.
Mbaka, who leads Adoration Ministry, Enugu, also accused Nigerian security agencies of killing EndSARS protesters and dumping their bodies into the Onyeama valleys.
The controversial Catholic priest, who supported Buhari’s 2015 election bid against Goodluck Jonathan, made the comments in a sermon on Sunday.
Mbaka said Buhari must apologise to Nigerian youth and the entire nation for bringing them nothing but pain.
He also said that governments across Nigeria must stop attacking members of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), a group that wants the country’s southeast to secede.
“They should not touch any of those Biafra boys o,” Mbaka said.
“This is not about EndSARS or IPOB. Nobody is fighting any government; we are fighting bad governance.
“Few days ago, at Miliken Hill, after New Market, (in Enugu), people discovered corpses of those that were shot and killed during the recent protest.
“They dumped people’s corpses there while families of those young men and women continued searching for them.
“That is why I am telling you that Nigeria can never be the same again.
Did you expect these young men to keep watching the country being swindled and looted dry by the so-called leaders?
“Buhari, who could have been a solution to this, succeeded in encircling himself with criminals and hooligans.
“People, who do not just tell him lies but rather, they magnify lies; lies with NAFDAC number – and feed him.”
