The Lagos State government has hinted it has commenced an investigation on the unethical filming of the late Rico Swavey by persons suspected to be nurses in a hospital.
The state Commissioner for Information and Strategy; Gbenga Omotoso made this known as the 30-second video clip showing the final moments of the late BigBrother Naija housemate attracted condemnation from members of the public.
He said, “That hospital is not a government hospital; we have started an investigation into the unprofessional conduct of those who appeared in that video.”
The visual, allegedly recorded by one of the nurses attending to Rico Swavey, had him placed on oxygen as he was unconscious on a chair.
It was gathered that the nurses were attempting to carry him on a bed when the nurse allegedly brought out a phone and started recording him. Another nurse was heard cautioning her colleague against the act.
“You people should stop making the video; somebody is dying, you people are making video,” the nurse said.
Reacting to the video, a marketing strategist, Samuel Atigba, condemned the action of the nurses.
Using his verified Twitter handle, @SamuelOtigba, he wrote, “Anytime I watch that video of the nurses joking, laughing and making needless videos of Rico for social media instead of giving him the necessary urgent attention needed to save his life, my heart breaks over again cause he could have survived. RIP Rico.”
