Plateau Killings: Okorocha reveals APC governors’ plan to end massacre


The Imo State governor and Chairman, Progressive Governors’ Forum, Rochas Okorocha, has disclosed that the governors on the platform of the All Progressives Congress will be in Plateau State on Friday over the killings in the State.

Okorocha said that the governors would assess the situation, and interact with the governor of the State, Mr. Simon Lalong on solutions to stop further killings in the State and other parts of the country.

Okorocha disclosed this on Tuesday, at the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport on arrival from Abuja after the National Convention of the APC.

He noted that the crisis was not a religious one.

He said “I, with the rest of the governors of APC condemn in its entirety these unwarranted killings of innocent souls, and shedding of blood. We have called them insurgents, we’ve called them Boko Haram, we have called them all kinds of baptismal names and because the situation is not properly defined, most people hide under the cloak of religion of Christianity or Islam to create harm.

“No religion on earth, not even Christianity or Islam would warrant anyone to take anyone’s life. So this is not indeed a religious issue.

“Nigerians must come together now and fight this war properly because nationalism and religious differences have been the loophole with which these criminals operate.”
