The Isekhure of Benin Kingdom & Benin Chief Priest Visit Pope Francis

Chief Nosakhare Isekhure, The Isekhure of Benin Kingdom visited the Catholic Pontiff, His Holiness Pope Francis at the Vatican City Rome, Italy on the occasion of the celebration of fifty years of World Peace through religious dialogue, understanding and communication

History has it that the Catholics came to Bini kingdom long before other missionaries came to Nigeria, and the Bini chiefs fashioned their traditional robes after the Catholic priests. Unfortunately the religion could not be sustained in the area.
