A second nurse could be heard advising her colleague against the act.
The nurse said, “You guys should stop making the video; someone is dying, and you people are taking video.”
Samuel Atigba, a marketing strategist, responded to the video by criticizing the nurses’ behavior.
“Anytime I watch that video of the nurses joking, laughing, and making unnecessary videos of Rico for social media instead of giving him the necessary urgent attention needed to save his life, my heart breaks over again because he could have survived,” he wrote using his verified Twitter handle, @SamuelOtigba. Rico, RIP.
“This hospital should be closed and the license of those nurses should be revoked,” a director named Egai Eti wrote.
Doctors were attempting to revive him, according to a fellow Big Brother Naija Season 3 ex-housemate, Alex Asogwa, who posted the news on her Twitter page on Tuesday.
Rico Swavey, unfortunately, passed away on Thursday from his injuries.
Gbenga Omotoso, the state’s commissioner for information and strategy, announced that an investigation had been launched by the state government.
“That hospital is not a government hospital,” he declared, “and we have begun an investigation into the unethical behavior of those who appeared in that video.”
