Nigerian Actor, Yul Edochie Finally Speaks On Son’s Death

Yul Edochie, a Nigerian actor, has spoken out about the death of Kambilichukwu, his firstborn son with his first wife, May.

Kambilichukwu was claimed to have had a seizure while playing football with his classmates in late March.

The 16-year-old boy was transported to Lagos’ Mother and Child Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Edochie turned to Instagram on Thursday evening, about a month after his kid died, to express his grief.

The actor recalled his last moment with Kambilichukwu, adding that “I can’t question God.”

Edochie also described his late son as a “cheerful and loving soul who has made his mark on earth.”

“On that Wednesday morning, you came into my room dressed up for school,” he wrote.

“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. 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. 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!”


The Lagos police command earlier said there is an ongoing investigation to unravel the cause of Kambilichukwu’s demise.

“We will investigate what led to the boy’s death. There’s a need to carry out an autopsy to know what really happened. We can’t really say what happened until the autopsy is done,” the police said.
