Fiery Roman Catholic priest and Director, Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has said that his recent legal victory over the Union Bank Plc was divine that came from God. A state High Court sitting in Enugu, had last week while delivering judgment between the priest and the bank in suit No E/56/10, awarded the sum of N5.5 billion in favour of the priest.
The Cleric, while reacting to the verdict Tuesday, described it as “divine and miraculous.” In a statement jointly signed by his media aide, Ike Maximus Ugwuoke and one of his counsels, F. C Okeke, Mbaka appeal to the bank to without further delay pay the judgment debt against them. The statement read: “With boundless joy, we glorify the name of God for the miraculous legal victory he granted to Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria over the case filed against the Spiritual Director of the Ministry, Rev Fr Ejike Camilus Mbaka and two others by Union Bank of Nigeria plc.
“The case filed in suit no E/56/10 had been pending before the Enugu State High Court for about seven years until judgment was delivered therein on Thursday the 9th of February 2017 by Hon Justice A.R. Ozoemena of the Enugu State High Court who presided over the case.”
