The young man was said to have died early Wednesday morning from complications associated with the disorder.
Eucharia Anunobi confirmed the news to NetNG on the phone saying her son had passed to be with Jesus.
“My son has gone to our place of origin (heaven) to be with our daddy Jesus, waiting for me when I eventually go there at the fullness of time.”
Asked about how she felt, the evangelist said: “God knows best.”
Raymond was actress Eucharia Anunobi’s only son whom she had with estranged husband Charles Ekwu.
This is the second time that Eucharia, who recently returned to Nollywood after almost a decade break, has lost a loved one in less than three years. In 2015, her dad, Pa Felix Anunobi, died after a brief illness.
Her son, Raymond had been battling with sickle cell anaemia till his eventual death at the age of 15.
On one occasion Eucharia was asked how she was able to take care of the boy alone without the help of the father, the actress replied saying:
“The Lord has been sustaining me as a single parent. I don’t think about it. All I know is that God created me and the child that He has given to me. So, God will provide whatever that I need.”
We pray that God will console the veteran actress in these times in Jesus name. Amen
