Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, lost his son yesterday, Kambilichukwu Edochie.
His death is coming two months after the celebration of his 16th birthday with Edochie and wife, May Edochie.
Confirming the tragic incident, Pete Edochie said his son, Yul, had called him on phone, Wednesday, informing him that Kambilichukwu developed a seizure after he fell down when he was playing football with his school mates.
According to Edochie, the deceased was rushed to the Mother and Child Hospital in Lagos but was confirmed dead hours later.
The veteran actor revealed that his family started a prayer session after Yul called informing them about the incident.
Edochie said: “Kambilinachukwu is a very quiet, brilliant and talented child. He’s not somebody you can ride easily. He doesn’t get angry no matter the situation.
He may change his composure, but he was definitely a very unusual person in so many respects.

“He was so accomplished. I always tell my son that I don’t like people excelling like this in any thing they are involved in. Experience has taught me that such people don’t last long.”
