Pope Francis III has described the killing of over 120 worshippers in the Kano Central Mosque as an “extremely serious sin against God.”

The Pope, at a meeting with Turkish leaders urged Muslim leaders to condemn the “barbaric violence” being committed by Islamist groups in the name of Allah.

He spoke just as the Federal Government promised to supply hospitals in Kano with blood, to save the lives of those injured in the attack by terrorists.

The Catholic Pontiff, who maintained that the use of military might against Boko Haram was justifiable, urged greater dialogue between Christians, Muslims and people of other faiths to end religious fundamentalism plaguing the world.
