Pope hails 14-year-old Nigerian Saint Vivian Ogu

The head of the Catholic church, Pope Francis, on Sunday, October 27, praised the virtue of 14-year-old Vivian Ogu as one that is exemplary of a good Christian.

MSM reports that the pope, who was represented by Archbishop Guampetno Dal Toso, the international president of Pontifical Mission Societies, made this known at the Vivian Ogu Missionary Animation Centre in Benin city.

He said the 14-year-old showed that one can practice their faith without the fear of consequences, saying she laid her life down in trust of her faith.

It should be recalled that the young lady was sent to an early grave on November 15, 2009 when she was shot after she fought back at the armed robbers who wanted to rape her at her family house in the capital of Edo state.

Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state, the archbishop of Abuja, Cardinal John Onaiyekan, were among the prominent figures that praised the late teenager.
