Rico Swavey, the 2018 Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija) housemate, has been involved in a car accident.


In a Twitter post on Tuesday, Alex Asogwa, another former BBNaija housemate, asked the public to pray for Swavey.

She said her colleague is currently in critical condition.

The reality TV star also said she just left the hospital where Swavey is getting treatment, adding that doctors are trying to resuscitate him.


She, however, expressed optimism that her colleague will be “resuscitated”.

“Good morning sweethearts. Please put @iamricoswavey in your prayers today. He was involved in a ghastly accident hours ago and the doctors are still trying to resuscitate him as I just left the hospital. It’s really critical. I’m staying positive,” Alex wrote.

The post has continued to attract concerns among Nigerians on social media platforms.

Born Patrick Fakoya, Swavey participated in the 2018 edition of the reality TV show titled ‘Double Wahala’ which was won by Miracle Igbokwe.


During his stint on the show, he was popular for his relationship with Princess.

He is a graduate of law from Babcock University.
