He said the deceased was taken by ambulance to the Mother and Child Hospital in Lagos, where he subsequently passed away.
The renowned actor claimed that as soon as Yul reached him on the phone to discuss the tragic event, his family instantly began praying for the youngster.
"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."
