Celebrated Nigerian actress Tonto Dikeh has revealed that her 2-year-old son, Andre Omodayo Churchill, nearly died after he fell ill recently.
Ms Dikeh took to her official Instagram page to document her son’s close shave with death, though she did not disclose what he was suffering from.
“The last three weeks of our lives have been amazingly terrifying. The devil reared its ugly head, but he met a lion disguised as a woman. I almost lost my son, but ‘almost’ cannot kill a bird. The devil has been defeated in my life and in the lives of my loved ones,” said Ms Dikeh.
“Thanks to my son @henryskule for your selflessness. I mean you slept day in and [day] out at the hospital… All for us? We love you,” she said, adding: “Thank you, Lord Jesus.”
Andre is Ms Dikeh’s first and only child with her ex-husband Oladunni Churchill, whom she separated with in February, 2017 after two years of marriage.
Ms Dikeh accused Mr Churchill of being a wife batterer.
