Rochas Okorocha, the Ex-Governor of Imo State, has warned against the ethnic profiling of Igbo people, insisting they “are not killers”.
The former Imo state governor stated this on Thursday, during the centenary celebration in honour of the former Premier of Eastern Nigeria, the late Michael Okpara, in Abuja.
“I appeal to all Nigerians to stop the ethnic profiling of the Igbo.
“They are not murderers, otherwise they won’t be in Kano or Lagos doing business.
“Indeed, we are passing through one of the ugliest moments of our history,” he said.
Rochas Okorocha’s comments come almost a week after the killing of Ahmed Gulak, an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain.
Ahmed Gulak was an ex-political adviser to former President, Goodluck Jonathan and was murdered in Owerri, Imo State at the weekend.
Gulak, who conducted the APC primary election in Imo State before the 2019 general elections, had accused Okorocha of, among other things, taking him hostage and forcing him to announce the results in his favour.
