The news of the death of Bishop Gregory Ochiagha has just been received. Bishop Ochiagha is the iroko and the father figure of Catholic Diocese of Orlu, being the pioneer Bishop who served as the Lord\’s vineyard for decades.

Bishop Ochiagha (rtd) was the name that rang bell among Christ faithful in the diocese and whenever Orlu Diocese is mentioned attention goes to Bishop Ochiagha. Now after battling with minor health issues coupled with old age, the 88 years old prelate has gone home. He died at Annunciation hospital Enugu where he went for medical check-up.

Catholic Diocese of Orlu is indeed mourning the demise of this great servant, the man whose name is synonymous with the diocese. Worthy of note is the fact that Late Bishop Ochiagha hailed from Mbano and was not a son of Orlu Diocese but very respected during his tenure and after in the entire diocese.

Indeed we have lost a great iroko and heaven has gained a soul. RIP the Lord\’s soldier of faith, Most Rev. Dr. Gregory Obinna Ochiagha.
