Pope Francis condemns Borno killing, says ‘May God convert the killers’

Pope Francis has condemned the killing of farmers in Borno state, Nigeria.

On Saturday, more than 40 farmers were killed in Zabarmari area of Jere local government council of the state by Boko Haram insurgents.

Abubakar Shekau, leader of the Boko Haram sect in a video on Tuesday, claimed responsibility for the killing and said at least, 78 farmers were killed in the incident.

He said the farmers were killed because they handed over a member of the sect to the Nigerian army.

The Pope commiserated with the families of the slain farmers and prayed that the “hearts of those who commit such horrors” will be converted during his virtual weekly general audience on Wednesday.

“I want to assure my prayers for Nigeria, which unfortunately once again has been bloodied by a terroristic massacre,” the Pope said.

“May God welcome them into his peace and comfort their families, and may he convert the hearts of those who commit such horrors, which gravely offend His name.”
