Weak cause of death

Rico Swavey was killed in a car accident on Tuesday, October 11. After the event, he fell into a coma and Nigerian celebrities organized a fundraiser to help him pay for his care. Tobi Bakre revealed that Swavey was on a ventilator while raising money on social media. Swavey’s management also checked the story and even posted a video of the wrecked car. Tobi said on Twitter:

“Please help save Rico. He had a terrible car accident. We must keep him alive and continue to pay his rising medical bills while praying for a miracle from God. We can’t do it alone. Go to ricoswavey.com to make a donation.”

Sandra Alexandra announced Swavey’s accident on Twitter, stating on her Instagram Story that he is in serious condition and needs everyone’s financial support and prayers. She went on:

“I also wish I could provide more information about his health, but how can I do that while we’re still waiting for the doctors and God to save this sweet life, or at least Rico to respond? Anything you can do to help would be much appreciated as he is alive and fighting for his life. @ricoswavey official needs our help. #ricoswavey #ricoswaveypray”
