Pope Francis, who is the leader of the Catholic church had on Sunday, October 27, lauded the virtue of 14-year-old Vivian Ogu as one that is expected of a good Christian.
MSM reports that the pope, represented by the international president of Pontifical Mission Societies, Archbishop Guampetno Dal Toso, made this known at the Vivian Ogu Missionary Animation Centre in Benin city.
He stated that 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.
