The two journalists, accompanied by one Cajethan Obiekezie, also a Catholic priest, were said to have visited the AMEN prayer ground in Enugu for a scheduled interview, they, however, moved to his residence as the church service lasted longer than expected and while waiting in their car, they were reportedly surrounded by about 20 men.

Obiekezie, who had entered Father Mbaka’s house, came out with the priest but the latter reportedly joined in the attack, describing Obianinwa as “satanic.”

This fired up the men to continue the attacks as Father Mbaka continued shouting and abusing us. He asked his men to seize our phones and cameras,” she was quoted to have said.

They said they would kill us and nothing would happen. They removed my wig and tried to strangle Nnamdi. Father Obiekezie was telling them to stop but they attacked him too and seized his phone.

At this point, Father Mbaka asked us to leave before his men killed us. He asked them to return our equipment and they chased us out of the compound. His men trailed us till we left the state to seek medical assurance and police help.”

Father Mbaka’s spokesman, Maximus Ugwoke, says he doubts if the BBC story of a reported beating of its journalists in Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka’s compound was true.

According to Ugwoke, he just learnt about the development but has not heard from Mbaka but, however, “I doubt if it’s true. Father couldn’t have done that kind of a thing. Is this the first time he granted interviews to journalists?

Father Mbaka’s spokesman said: “Well, I just got to hear about the story this evening that they are pedeling around. I am not preview to these things and I am not aware that it happened. What I am doing now is to find out if such a thing happened. Until I reach father before I would know if such a thing happened.

“I just went through the story and I know that father cannot do that kind of a thing, he cannot. Father cannot do that kind of a thing, doesn’t father grant interview to the press? He cannot do that kind of a thing the way they described it there,” Ugwoke told BBC on Thursday evening.
