Pete Edochie, veteran Nollywood actor, has mourned the death of his grandson, Kambilichukwu Edochie, describing him as a brilliant and easygoing person.
Kambilichukwu, the first son of Yul Edochie, slumped and died on Wednesday while playing football.
The son died two months after Edochie celebrated his 16th birthday with his wife, May Edochie.
Peter who spoke to Vanguard about the sad incident, said his son, Yul, called him on the telephone, Wednesday, informing him that Kambilichukwu fell down while playing football with his school mates and developed a seizure.
According to him, the deceased was rushed to the Mother and Child Hospital, Lagos, where he died hours later.
The legendary actor said his family started praying for the child immediately Yul called him on the telephone about the sad incident.
Edochie said: “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 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.”
Edochie said it was unfortunate that his grandson died while he had shown great promise.
Meanwhile, both Yul and his first wife, May, haven’t broken their silence since the incident.
