Pope gives rebel Nigeria priests ultimatum over bishop

Pope gives rebel Nigeria priests ultimatum over bishopPope Francis has given church officials in southern Nigeria a 30-day ultimatum to obey him by accepting the nomination of a bishop — or face being suspended from office. During talks with a Catholic delegation from Nigeria, the pope demanded that priests and church members in the southern diocese of Ahiara write to him personally to “ask his forgiveness”, the Holy See said in a statement at the weekend. “Whoever does not do this will be ipso facto suspended a divinis and will lose his current office,” it warned.
