Popular Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has reportedly filed a complaint against his late son, Kambilichukwu’s school, alleging negligence that may have contributed to his son’s untimely death.
It’s gathered that the bereaved father reported the death of his first son, Kambilichukwu Edochie, to the Lagos State Police Command, and an investigation is underway.
According to Hundeyin, contrary to reports that the 16-year-old died in the presence of his parents, he died at school.
“The state’s Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, who confirmed this in a chat with newsmen, said the police have begun an investigation into the incident.
He just reported the case and we have begun investigation. By tomorrow (Friday) it will be transferred to state CID. We will investigate what killed the boy. They have to do an autopsy and know what happened to him,” he said.
“We can’t tell you what happened to him now until an autopsy is conducted, but the incident happened in the school.” Hundeyin said.
