Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha has said that the killings in Plateau and Zamfara states were beyond religious killings stating that both Christians and Muslims were victims.
He stated that the country is at the moment passing through difficult times and therefore urged religious leaders and indeed all Nigerians to pray to God for the peace of the country not minding where one comes from and which religion one belongs.
The governor spoke at the weekend at the 10th Episcopal Anniversary of the Catholic Bishop of Orlu Diocese, Imo State, His Lordship, Most Rev. Augustine Ukwuoma at the Holy Trinity Cathedral Orlu.
He said some people have lost their sense of value for lives with the rate at which blood-letting is going on in this Country, noting that the situation calls for God’s intervention.
The Bishop had earlier thanked God for being solidly behind him in his priesthood and also thanked the governor and the government he heads for showing special interest in things of God.
