IMO: (Photos) American, George Floyd Reburied in Imo State.

A Nigerian Pastor simply known as Okoro has reburied George Floyd an American who died in the  United States as a result of Police brutality.

Late Floyd who was born in Fayetteville, North Carolina, and was raised in Houston Texas before he moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2014 died on the 25th of May 2020 after a white police officer handcuffed him, made him lay flat and suffocated him to death by kneeling on his neck for close to 8 minutes while Floyd begged using the words "I can't Breathe" continously.

Even after Floyd became motionless, Derek Chauvin the white officer refused to get his knee off Floyd's neck not minding passers-by who had gathered to record the incident begged the police officer to let go.

Despite the fact that Floyd had been buried in the US, Pastor Okoro who sees Floyd as his kinsman has yet again buried him in Imo state after Okoro claimed that he traced the ancestral lineage of the deceased to Imo state Nigeria.

Okoro said,

"I 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 buried him alongside his ancestors."
