The end may not have been heard about the controversy trailing the death of reality TV star, Patrick Fakoya, a.k.a Rico Swavey, at a Lagos hospital as the state government on Friday initiated a probe into allegation of negligence on the part of health workers on duty when Swavey was rushed to the facility.
Information pieced together by Per Seconds News confirmed that a video of Rico Swavey in the hospital showed that the health workers, including nurses were nonchalant and were seen laughing at a time when all hands should be on deck to save Swavey.
In the clip recorded by one of the nurses attending to Rico Swavey, the deceased was placed on oxygen as he was unconscious on a chair.
It was observed that the nurses were attempting to carry him on a bed when the nurse brought out a phone and started recording him.
Another nurse was heard cautioning her colleague against the act.
Per Seconds News had reported that the reality TV star got involved in an accident on Tuesday.
A fellow ex-housemate in Big Brother Naija Season 3, Alex Asogwa, who shared the news on her Twitter page on Tuesday, said doctors were trying to resuscitate him.
Rico Swavey, however, succumbed to the fatal injuries on Thursday.
The Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, said the state government had commenced investigation.
“That hospital is not a government hospital; we have started an investigation into the unprofessional conducts of those who appeared in that video.”
