Yul Edochie, a well-known Nigerian actor and politician, is grieving the loss of his first son, Kambilichukwu Edochie, who passed away on Thursday, March 30. The teenager had joined his friends for a football game when he suddenly collapsed. Despite being rushed to the Mother and Child Hospital, the doctors’ efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.
The actor’s family had been experiencing increased tensions since he married a fellow filmmaker, Judy Austin, in 2022. This left his marriage with his first wife, Mary Edochie, in an uncertain state. Just two months ago, Yul had celebrated his son’s 16th birthday with Mary, sharing his good wishes and asking God to guide and protect him always.
Yul Edochie’s fans and well-wishers have taken to social media to express their condolences, offering prayers and messages of support to the actor and his family. While the loss of his son is undoubtedly a challenging time for the family, Yul has shown strength and resilience in the face of adversity. However, he has yet to comment on his son’s passing.
As the family mourns Kambilichukwu’s loss, we extend our heartfelt sympathies and pray that they find comfort and strength in each other during this difficult time. May Yul Edochie and his family find the courage to face the challenging days ahead.
