Imo State appears to be the lost state of Biafra. Whereas Christians residing in Islamic states of Nigeria such as Kano are being restricted from freely practicing their faith, Muslims in Christian states are making unimaginable demands.

Muslims in Imo State have requested for an Eid ground, large enough to contain the 'ever-increasing Muslim population' in the state. They did not stop at that, they also demanded for the establishment of a Muslim Pilgrims Welfare board.

Imo State under the leadership of a closet Muslim governor, Rochas Okrocha is barely one step away from sharia, yet the indigenes appears not to be seeing this coming. Rochas Okorocha is actively islamising Imo State. 

Okorocha while hosting Muslims in the state during a Ramadan ‘iftar’ said Ramadan is a period of spiritual rebirth that required sober reflection, urging Christians and Muslims in the state to unite and fight the Boko Haram terrorism.

On his part Chairman of the Muslim Council, Yusuf Nwoha said the Ramadan ‘iftar’ had been a tradition since Governor Okorocha came into power. He said this year’s occasion was important and unique because the invitation was extended to Muslims residing in other Southeast states.
