Former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has issued a statement over the violence taking place in the south east.
 
He warned Nigerians against ethnic profilng of Igbo people.
 
Okorocha 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.
 
His comments come almost a week after the killing of Ahmed Gulak, an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain.
 
Gulak, an ex-political adviser to former President, Goodluck Jonathan, was killed in Owerri, Imo State at the weekend.
 
Gulak, who conducted the APC primary election in Imo State prior to the 2019 general elections, had accused Okorocha of, among other things, taking him hostage and forcing him to announce the results in his favour.
