He was only 15.
Nigerians woke up to the news that one the country’s brightest film stars, Eucharia Anunobi had lost her teenage son to the cold hands of death. Raymond, the only child of the actress had reportedly died on Tuesday.
NET reached out to the grieving mother a short while ago and she confirmed the passing of her son.
‘Thank you, I appreciate it, ‘ she told our correspondent. ‘My son has gone to our place of origin (heaven) to be with our daddy Jesus, waiting for me when I eventually go there at the fullness of time.’
Known for her effervescent nature, Ms Anunobi did not betray any emotion as she spoke with our correspondent, even as the latter’s voice cracked when they talked about Raymond’s battles with sickle cell anaemia and eventual death at the age of 15. ‘Common, common’, she said, ‘God knows best. ‘
Eucharia’s marriage to Raymond’s father, Charles, from 2000-2009 ended in a messy divorce that saw the actress slam her husband with a N100 million lawsuit in 2010.
