Former Governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha, has cautioned Nigerians against ethnic profiling of Igbo people, maintaining the people “are not killers.”
Okorocha stated this yesterday at 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.
This comes after a Northern Senator, Adamu Bulkachuwa said the Nigerian Government is ready fight those he described as “rebels, arsonists and criminals” in the South-East.
