Over a month after the burial of late George Floyd, he was reburied in Nigeria. In pictures that have since flooded the internet, a Nigerian pastor called Humble Okoro is seen conducting a funeral service for the late Floyd in a place called Mbaise, Imo State.
Floyd was even given a Nigerian name ‘Obinna’.
Pallbearers were also seen dressed in black suits as they carried a casket. According to Leadership, Pastor Humble Okoro said that he decided to hold another burial ceremony for George Floyd so that he could rest alongside his ancestors.
“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,” said the Pastor.
46-year-old George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, during an arrest after allegedly passing a counterfeit $20 bill in May this year. He was buried in Houston on June 6.
So, the question is, who’s in the casket?
