It has been reported that Nigerian veteran Nollywood star, Eucharia Anunobi has opened up about how she was abandoned by everyone after the death of her son.
“When I lost my only son, everybody practically deserted me. But I didn’t give up. I never thought of taking my life. Suicide is never an option. It is a sin against God,” she said in an emotion-laden voice.

In 2017, Eucharia lost her only son, 15-year-old Raymond, to complications from sickle cell anemia. The video had her recounting the loss of her son whom she described as her best friend on numerous occasions.
“I want to let you know that I also feel what you’re feeling; I want you to use me as a point of contact. I lost my only son and everyone practically deserted me. I haven’t given up; I want to tell you not to give up. All will be well, suicide is not an option it’s a sin against God,” .
A certain woman in the comment section, identified as @dr._emma_wifey reacted saying;
” Well said sis. Suicide is never an option. A lot of people are passing through misery of all kinds but they are still praying and hoping that it shall be well someday”.
“Losing an only child is about the worst thing that could happen to anyone but God knows the reason for every occurrence. This world is nobody’s home. We all shall leave it someday for sure. Life is too short for anyone to take his/her own life”.
“There’s no permanence in life. All we can do is to leave a godly life while we are here so that we can merit the eternal life/joy in the presence of God. May the Lord continue to be your strength. 💕💕💕”.
