According to reports, Yul’s first child was taken unconscious to the hospital and then given immediate medical attention.
Kambilichukwu’s passing has been verified by Yul, according to a source who talked to Vanguard under the condition of anonymity.
May’s sister who was at the scene said the boy read throughout the night preparing for his exam today.
