The family of Rev. Vincent Nosegbe has announced the establishment of The Rev. Vincent Nosegbe Foundation. The mission of the NGO is to offer financial support to indigent students in Ika, Delta State.

He passed on to the great beyond on June 23, 2023, after a brief illness. The NGO is to honour his life and legacy

Rev. Vincent O.  Nosegbe was born on May 6, 1944, to the family of Mr. Benson Mgbedike and Mrs. Lydia Ekawunwaeze of Idumuezeaja Quarters, Ute-Okpu in Ika North East Local Government of Delta State.

He attended CMS No. 1 Primary School Ute-Okpu and thereafter proceeded to Modern School in 1960 where he finished in 1962 with distinction.

Vincent Nosegbe joined the Nigerian Police Force in the year 1964, where he rose to the rank of an Inspector/Station Officer in Ikorodu Police Station along Sagamu Road where he served last in the Force. He got married to the love of his life, Dora Afam in 1970, and was blessed with six children.

He garnered many awards during his time at the Force due to his bravery and diligent work ethics. This led to the then Police hierarchy rejecting his voluntary retirement from the Force initially but he insisted and stood his ground. He voluntarily retired from the Police Force in March 1979 after 15 years of meritorious service to his fatherland.

Nosegbe then joined Nichemtex, a leading textile industry as Head of the Security unit where he served till his retirement at the mandatory age of 60.

He was an ordained Minister of God and actively served in the Lord’s vineyard in different capacity and until recently the head of the counseling ministry of the Omega Fire Ministries, Oregun Lagos

A beloved father, who was selfless and ensure all his children completed their tertiary education with flying colours. He was a man of the people as he helped those he could with jobs and business opportunities.

He is survived by his wife, children, grandchildren, brothers, sister and other relations.

He will be sorely missed.

May his gentle soul rest in the bosom of the Almighty.
