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,” the evangelist said.
In 2017, Anunobi lost her only son, 15-year-old Raymond, to complications from sickle cell anemia.
