Pete Edochie speaks on death of his grandson, Kambilichukwu

Pete Edochie, a legendary Nollywood actor, has mourned the death of his grandson, Kambilichukwu Edochie.

Kambilichukwu died on March 29, two months after his 16th birthday, which was celebrated by his parents, Yul and May Edochie.

The actor confirmed the sad news to Vanguard, saying his son, Yul, called him on Wednesday and told him that Kambilichukwu had collapsed while playing football with his schoolmates and had a seizure.

According to him, the deceased was rushed to Lagos’ Mother and Child Hospital, where he died several hours later.

The veteran actor stated that his family began praying for the child the moment Yul called him about the tragic incident.

“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,” Edochie said.

“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.” he added.

Edochie said it was unfortunate that his grandson died while he had shown great promise.
