Evangelist Eucharia Anunobi’s only child dies at 15
Anunobi, well known for her warm and sunny disposition, lost that cheerful smile following the tragedy that saw her only son, born in 2002, battling Sickle Cell Anemia for many years.
However, the biggest challenge she is faced with now is how to deal with the loss of her only son who passed on at the age of 15, a close friend to the star actress, Precious Eze, revealed.
Anunobi recently revealed in the media that she regretted having the son out of wedlock “It was not a deliberate choice that I have made. It came by chance, it came by mistake. God does not kill His children who have made mistakes. He would rather sustain them and tell them that He is the owner of all things.
“The Lord has been sustaining me as a single parent. I don’t think about it, all I know is, ‘God, you are the one that created me and the child that you gave to me’. So whatever that is needed of me, it was a wrong choice that I made, she said.
