Yul Edochie breaks silence over son’s tragic death
Nigerian actor Yul Edochie has publicly addressed his son, Kambilichukwu’s death nearly a month after the tragic news broke.
In a post on Facebook, Yul Edochie shared with his followers the conversation he had with his late 16-year-old son on the morning of his death.
He noted that the young boy was excited to inform him about his school activities and he was looking forward to the inter-house games they were expected to have two days later.
However, Kambilichukwu passed away later that day. Yul Edochie stated that the family misses him every day since he died.
“On that Wednesday morning, you came into my room, dressed up for school. You told me your school will be having inter-house sports on Friday and I promised you I’ll be there. You were so excited. You told me you won a gold medal in swimming,” he wrote.
“I congratulated you. We joked about your height, then you left for school in your ever-cheerful manner. And you never came back home again. I can’t question God. My dear son, just 16 years with us here on earth, but you made your mark. Great Son.”
Singing his first son’s praises Yul Edochie added “calm, cute, brilliant, always cheerful, outstanding footballer, gentle and loving soul. You’re an angel. We miss you. We love you, Kambi. Daddy loves you. But God loves you more. Rest well, Son. Till we meet again. Rest in Heaven with God. My dear son, Kambi Yul-Edochie. Kambi yoooooo! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️.”
This comes nearly a month after Yul Edochie lost his first son Kambilichukwu whom he had with his first wife, May.
Kambilichukwu died in March after reportedly developing a seizure and was rushed to the Mother and Child Hospital in Lagos.
Following the 16-year-old’s death, the Lagos state police command has said it will investigate the death of Kambilichukwu.
The Lagos police spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, in a chat with BBC, confirmed that there is an ongoing investigation to uncover the cause of Kambilichukwu’s death.
Hundeyin said Yul reported the incident at a police station close to him.
The actor also cleared his Instagram page of every post he has ever made first starting with pictures of his second wife Judy Austin and her son.
