Pope Wades into Ethnic Crisis in Catholic Church in Imo

Pope Francis has intervened in an ethnic crisis involving the Nigerian town of Ahiara, Imo state , whose bishop, Peter Okpaleke, appointed by Benedict XVI in 2012, is unwanted by lay people and priests of the diocese.

Though Mr. Okpaleke is an Igbo from Anambra State, the Catholic leaders in Ahiara rejected him because he is not an Igbo man from Mbaise.
