The management of late Big Brother Naija season 3 housemate, Rico Swavey has broken their silence on his death.
The reality star passed on to glory on Thursday morning, October 13 following injuries sustained from a ghastly motor accident. His car accident was made public by Alex Unusual while his death was announced by his co-star, Tobi Bakre.
