Reports emerged today that Kambilichukwu, the first son of Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, had died.
Following this, the fans of the actor have sent their condolences to the family.
It broke out on Thursday morning that the actor’s first son was rushed to the hospital after falling unconscious.
A source who spoke to Vanguard on condition of anonymity revealed that Yul has confirmed Kambilichukwu’s death at the time this report was filed.
May’s sister who was at the scene said the boy read throughout the night preparing for his exam today. After his exam in school, he joined his mates to play football and that’s when he developed a seizure and was rushed to Mother and Child Hospital. All efforts by the doctors to resuscitate him proved abortive, the report added.
