Yul Edochie Loses 16-year-old Son
Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, reportedly lost his first son, Kambilichukwu Edochie, on Thursday morning.
The son died two months after Edochie celebrated his 16th birthday with his wife, Mary Edochie.
Yul had on January 4 celebrated his (son) birthday via his verified Instagram handle, saying, “A very happy 16th birthday to my first son, Kambilinachukwu Leo Yul-Edochie. May God lead and protect you always. With many more happy years. Daddy loves you.”
Meanwhile, confirming the news of his death, a family member who spoke with Vanguard, was quoted as saying that Kambilichukwu died on Thursday.
“He read throughout the night preparing for his exam today. After his exam in school, he joined his mates to play football and he developed a seizure and was rushed to the Mother and Child Hospital. All efforts by the doctors to resuscitate him proved abortive,” she added.
The death of a child is one of the most painful experiences anyone can go through. Life is the only thing that can never be replaced. Our prayers are with Yul Edochie’s family. May God give them the fortitude to bear this irreplaceable loss, Amen.
