Halima Hassan, the mother of the late reality star, Rico Swavey, has for the first time spoken about the incidents surrounding her son’s tragic and untimely death.
Recall that the former Big Brother Naija housemate, Rico, died on October 13 from the injuries he sustained following a road accident in the Lekki/Ajah area of Lagos.
During the unveiling of a foundation in the name of her son, who died at age 29, the bereaved mother pleaded with hospitals to attend to patients first without considering money and also urged the government to fix bad roads in the country to avoid future accidents.
“I wasn’t happy when I saw him. No one would want to bury their children while they are still here. Unfortunately it happened to me and fortunately, I will use this to appeal to the government, and the hospitals. All I’m doing will not bring Rico back. It’s just for the future.
“For the hospitals, any accident, trauma accidents like Rico’s, they should put money aside and treat the person first. I don’t wish this on anybody. And they should try to do the roads, the roads are terrible. Even if it’s the street lights, whatever they can do, to help the young ones. We all have young people moving here and there, hustling for their lives. We don’t want anything to happen to them.” She said.
