Veteran Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie has mourned the demise of his grandson, Kambilichukwu Leo Yul-Edochie, who died at the age of 16.
Recall that Kambilichukwu, who was the first son of the veteran actor’s last child, Yul Edochie, passed away on Thursday.
Pete Edochie confirmed the sad news to journalists yesterday. He stated that on Wednesday, his son Yul called him and told him that Kambilichukwu had collapsed while playing football with his classmates and developed a seizure.
According to him, the deceased was rushed to the Mother and Child Hospital, Lagos, where he was later confirmed dead.
He described his late grandson as an unusual person, very brilliant and easy-going.
“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 a very unusual person in so many respects,” Vanguard quoted Edochie as saying.
The legendary actor added that he has always told his son that he doesn’t fancy people who excel like Kambilinachukwu because experience taught him that they don’t last long.
Meanwhile, actor Yul Edochie has reported the death of his son, Kambilichukwu Edochie, to the Lagos State Police Command.
The command’s spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, who confirmed the development Friday morning, said the matter would be forwarded to the State Criminal Investigation Department on Friday [today] for investigation.
