Tears as Rico Swavey is buried in Lagos

Rico Swavey, the late reality TV star, has been buried in Lagos in the presence of family and friends.

The former Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality show housemate was laid to rest at Ebony Vaults in Ikoyi on Thursday.

His interment was preceded by a funeral service at the Methodist Church of the Trinity, Tinubu Square.

Family and friends of the deceased were emotional as his corpse was lowered into the grave.

Swavey’s death became public knowledge on October 13 — a few days after he was involved in a ghastly car accident.

His management had, before his death, announced that he was on life support.

This was shortly after a fundraiser was launched in his name to facilitate his treatment.

A heated backlash had trailed some nurses in the hospital where Swavey died after footage of his last moments surfaced on social media.

Some of his fans had accused the staff of Doren Specialist Hospital in Lagos of recording the footage but the facility dismissed the allegations.

In the wake of the controversies trailing his death, the Lagos government announced it has commenced an investigation into the matter.

Swavey participated in the 2018 edition of BBNaija titled ‘Double Wahala’ which Miracle Igbokwe won.
