Pete Edochie reveals what he told Yul before grandson’s death
Legendary Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie, said he once told his son Yul that he was worried about the way his grandson Kambilichukwu was excelling in everything he does.
“Experience has taught me that such people don’t last long,” Pete stated while speaking to Vanguard on his grandson’s death.
Kambilichukwu died on Thursday morning, March 30, two months after his parents, Yul and May Edochie, celebrated his 16th birthday.
Speaking on the incident, Pete confirmed that his son, Yul, called him on the telephone on Wednesday, informing him that Kambilichukwu fell down while playing football with his schoolmates and developed a seizure.

According to him, the deceased was rushed to the Mother and Child Hospital in Lagos.
The legendary actor said his family started praying for the child immediately after Yul called him on the telephone about the sad 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.
“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 anything 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.
