Vivian Ogu was born in Benin City on the 1st of April, 1995. She was a parishioner of St Paul Catholic Church, Benin City and served as the President of the Holy Childhood Association, the Choir Mistress of the Children Choir and a member of Catholic Charismatic Renewal in the Parish.
She organised campaigns for charity to the orphans, the poor and the sick. She inspired many youths and children to a life of holiness, purity and virginity. On the 15th of November, 2009, she was killed in Benin City by armed robbers for refusing to be sexually defiled.
It is with delight we join the universal church this month of October, 2019. To celebrate the heroic example of the faith of Vivian Ogu as one of the twenty five great witnesses of the Christian Faith as carefully selected by the Holy see.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are readingNigerian Catholic Reporter than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Nigerian Catholic Reporter’s independent, engagement journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because of our strong desire to use this platform to redirect the warped thinking of perceived citizens of God’s kingdom towards biblical injunctions and God’s desired culture for His people.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as N500, you can support Nigerian Catholic Reporter.
