Kano bombing causes anger, frustration online

POPE Francis has joined Nigerians and other members of the international community to condemn Saturday’s Kano blast, saying it was an “extremely serious sin against God.”
He made the condemnation at a visit to Turkey.

As of yesterday, social media and blogs were inundated by Pope’s solidarity with Nigeria and Moslems which was originally reported by foreign media, including AFP.

The insurgents attacked a mosque in Kano on Friday in a deadly attack, killing about 120 people while injuring several others.

Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, also condemned the attack, while he called on concerned individuals to send donations to victims of the blast. He made the call on his Twitter handle. He had earlier cancelled the celebration of his 68th birthday saying there would be many more years of celebration.
