Nigerian Pastor Reburies George ‘Obinna’ Floyd in Mbaise, Imo State
A Nigerian clergyman, Pastor Humble Okoro, has conducted a fresh funeral for slain African-American George Floyd after allegedly linking him to Mbaise, Imo State.
Leadership reports that Pastor Okoro revealed that, “I have traced the ancestral root of George Obinna Floyd to Umuoffor kindred in Obokwu obibi Aboh Mbaise Imo State and I feel so happy now that we have reburied him alongside with his ancestors.”
George Floyd, 46, died after being arrested by police outside a shop in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Footage of the arrest on 25 May shows a white police officer, Derek Chauvin, kneeling on Floyd’s neck while he was pinned to the floor.
Chauvin, 44, has since been charged with murder.
