Mbaka disclosed this during his sermon at the adoration ground on Sunday while celebrating his first Mass after a 30-day reparation prayer following the desecration of the residence of the Enugu Bishop’s residence.
According to the Catholic priest, some DSS operatives were at his residence in Enugu State to drop a letter inviting him to Abuja.

The purported summon comes weeks after the priest clashed with the Presidency over his call for President Muhammadu Buhari to either resign or be impeached following the rising spate of insecurity in the country.
Mbaka, however, stated that those at his house did not collect the letter from the DSS operatives.

He said: “I celebrated mass with some of the leaders of the ministry. By Thursday morning, I got a call from where I was, that the DSS people from Abuja came to the gate, and they came with a letter of invitation to Abuja. Over what? What I cannot understand is that the mother church in Nigeria should be ‘cowed down’ to lilliputians.
“All these are attempts to dumbfound the priests of God. All the priests could be dumbfounded but no prophet should be dumbfounded. The Bible says if the foundation is destroyed, what can the righteous do.

“I heard the security people did not accept the letter. I said they could have received the letter. They told them Father is coming back to celebrate mass on Sunday, and they can come on Monday to give me the letter. If they know that the anointing flowing from this ground is too hot for them to handle, let them change.
“Look at the millions of youth moving about jobless, and you call us father. Should the father be comfortable when the children are suffering? What kind of father is that?”

Mbaka stated that the DSS does not “understand history”, explaining that he had also challenged previous Nigerian leaders over their approach to governance.
He said: “This is the same Father Mbaka who worked with Eneja and spoke against Abacha and co; who went to Minna and told [Ibrahim] Babangida what was wrong in his time; who, under Bishop Gbuji, went to [Olusegun] Obasanjo face to face and spoke to him. I perform under the anointing of the Holy Spirit.
“I don’t do anything to gain money. I do this to save souls and give God glory. Under Bishop Gbuji, I ministered to the late President Yar’adua. I didn’t start now to learn these. I am being used by a higher being called the holy spirit. If he wants to speak through me, who am I to resist him from using me? God forbid.”
Peter Afunanya, the DSS spokesman, has not yet commented on the cleric’s claim.
