The Police Public Relations Officer in Zamfara, Mohammed Shehu, confirmed the killing to Channels Television today.
He revealed that the burnt body of late Okpara, who was a consultant obstetrics/gynaecologist, was discovered at his residence in Mareri area of Gusau last saturday.
According to Dr. Maduka Chinemelum Ogwueleka, he said and I quote- I will continue to maintain that we have nothing in common with these barbaric, primitive people. Till I take my last breath, you will not see me in any part of the sahel. I don't want any association whatsoever with these beasts.
I don't know what an Igbo man would be doing in the midst of known primitive, barbaric mass murderers of Christians.
