Nollywood Actress and Evangelist, Eucharia Anunobi who lost her 15 years old son, Raymond to sickle cell anaemia in August 2017 revealed in a new interview that he was mistakenly killed by his doctor.
In a chat with Saturday Beats, Eucharia Anunobi, while narrating why she celebrated her son’s post-humous 16th birthday said that it is something they usually did on their birthdays and that her son was not supposed to die, but was mistakenly killed by his doctor.
“I have not removed my mourning clothes, neither have I opened my hair since the death of my son. I have only been wearing white since his demise and the reason I have maintained this is because my son was a good boy to me; but he was mistakenly killed by the doctor. My son was not supposed to die. He was a very wonderful child. I decided to honour him by marking his 16th birthday posthumously the way we normally do. During our birthdays, we usually visited the motherless babies and show them love by donating some clothes and food to them. This year would not be any different from the previous ones we have celebrated. I am going to do it the way my son and I had always done it and I would give out some of his personal effects. Normally, when someone dies, you do not touch their things for about a year. For instance, if a man’s wife dies he is not expected to touch her things or dispose of them till after a year. Initially, I decided to do the same thing but I later changed my mind and that is why I donated some of his things to a government-owned motherless babies’ home and also to the boys at the Special Correctional Centre for the Boys. I am doing this because I am a humanitarian and to let the motherless babies know that we love them.”
