The family of Rico Swavey, the former Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija) housemate, has announced his burial arrangements.


Swavey died last Thursday — a few days after he was involved in a ghastly car accident.

A flier containing details of his funeral arrangements was shared via his Twitter page on Tuesday.

According to the flier, Swavey’s funeral will start with a night of tribute and a candle night walk on October 19 in Victoria Island axis of Lagos state.


This will be followed by a private church service at the Methodist Church of Trinity on October 20 in Lagos Island.

The reality star will then be buried immediately after the church service in the Ikoyi axis of Lagos.

“With a heavy heart, we invite all friends and fans of Rico Swavey to his tribute night/candlelight walk tomorrow as we witness a star supernova,” the caption reads.


The reality star’s death has been met with a chorus of condemnation since footage of his last moments surfaced online

Some of Rico’s fans had accused the staff of Doren Specialist Hospital in Lagos of recording the footage but the facility dismissed the allegations.

The Lagos state government also announced the commencement of an investigation into the matter.


The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) on Monday partnered with the Lagos state government to investigate the cause of the reality star’s death.
