Actor Baba Suwe is critically ill

05 October 2016, 14:07

Lagos - Nollywood veteran actor and humour merchant Babatunde Omidina popularly known as Baba Suwe is currently going through health challenges.

Yomi Fabiyi in a post shared on his Instagram page today, October 5, 2016, called on his colleagues in the movie industry to come to the aid of Baba Suwe.

The reowned Nollywood movie director, blamed the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, for Baba Suwe's present health predicament.

In October 2011, Baba Suwe was arrested by officials of the NDLEA at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos, on the suspicion of ingestion of illicit drugs.

He was released after a court ordered NDLEA to release him after nothing suspicious was found on him.

He wrote, “On BABA SUWE: I am calling on all SENIOR COLLEAGUES in the entertainment world especially those close to Baba Suwe cos I don’t have everyone’s contact to please reachout to him asap. The torture done on him by NDLEA is vastly damaging his health at an alarming rate. He told me he no longer feel comfortable since that episode. Baba Suwe is a widower, he can hardly walk properly as I speak, let alone go to film. How will he feed and take care of the children aunty Moladun left behind?”

“This is an A-List Entertainer and this conspiracy of silence gives me MENTAL AGONY on my part, I don’t want to speak when it may be too late, I won’t forgive myself. He told me when I visited him that he is innocent of the accusations and yet a LONG PIPE was inserted through his anus, he was detained for too long amongst other things just because he was randomly suspected like every normal person. In my opinion, only lazy, ill-trained, unfit and uncivilised officers torture in the name of investigation. Torture is criminal and sinful. If this accusation is found to be true by independent investigators, it shouldn’t go unpunished.”
