The whereabout of Reverend Father, Ejike Mbaka, is currently unknown, according to Ohanaeze youths who raised the alarm on Wednesday.
Mr Mbaka, a former supporter-turned-critic of the incumbent federal government led by President Muhammadu Buhari recently made headlines after asking the latter to resign his position having failed to tackle growing insecurity.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, the youth wing of the Igbo socio-cultural organization said the Catholic cleric has not been seen publicly since yesterday.
“We have it on good authority that his aides have neither seen nor heard from him since Tuesday,” Okwu Nnabuike, president of the youth council said. “Calls put to his mobile line have also remained unanswered; this has now prompted us to issue this alarm as we would not take it lightly should anything untoward happen to him.
“We are giving the Federal Government 48 hours to produce the priest, else they should be ready to face Igbo youths. They were dining and wining with him all along and now that he told the truth, they are no longer comfortable with him.
“Let nothing happen to Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka. It will not be in anybody’s interest,” the group warned.
