Eucharia’s marriage to Raymond’s father, which lasted nine years between 2000-2009 ended in a messy divorce that saw the actress slammed Charles with a N100 million lawsuit in 2010.

“My son has gone to our place of origin to be with our daddy Jesus, waiting for me when I eventually go there at the fullness of time,” the 52-year-old grieving actress was quoted as saying by The Net on phone over the death of her son.
