Lagos State government has commenced investigations into the unprofessional conduct of nurses that filmed the last moments of former BBNaija housemate, Partick Fakoya, popularly known as Rico Swavey.
Gbenga Omotoso, state’s commissioner for information and strategy disclosed this to newsmen shortly after the video surfaced online on Thursday.
Gbenga said an investigation had been launched by the state government and the hospital where the incident occurred wasn’t a government-owned hospital.
The WITNESS reports that Rico Swavey died on Thursday from injuries sustained in a ghastly motor accident on Tuesday.
While he was unconscious one of the health workers taking care of him took a 30-second video clip of him. This generated outrage on social media.
When the nurse pulled out a phone and began recording him, it was seen that the nurses were attempting to carry him on a bed.
A different nurse could be heard advising her colleague not to do it.
From this video it was negligence and unprofessionalism from the nurses that cause the death of Rico Swavey. This hospital should be closed and the license of those nurses should be seized… pic.twitter.com/lJAfJkXDgd

You can see why life expectancy in Nigeria is low.
A person can die because doctors or nurses are not in the mood that day.

The nurses were laughing & contemplating what to do in that Rico Swavey's video.
There was no interest in saving his life.
Even with your money, the health system & personnel will FAIL you.
It's sad 😭

General Hospital, LUTH AND LASUTH.
The Doctors and Nurses in these Hospitals aren’t Humans, you can’t tell me anything else.
May God continue to grant us good health and not have to experience these hospitals.🙏🏾
