My dad’s problem started after ordeal with NDLEA, Baba Suwe’s son speaks

Tobi Adebayo
Adebowale Omidina, one of the children of late veteran actor, Babatunde Omidina popularly known as Baba Suwe has said that his father’s problems began after his ordeal with the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

Recall that Baba Suwe had been arrested in 2011 by the NDLEA for alleged cocaine trafficking.

However, the allegation was described as “false and defamatory” by the ruling of the Lagos High Court of Law.

Omidina was also awarded the sum of N25m in damages which was not paid by the agency until his passing on November 22.

Speaking of his father’s death, Adebowale apologised for posting a video of his dead father on social media.

“My father was a lovely person. Whenever I showed him his videos, he would start laughing and sometimes burst into tears and ask if it was him and if he would ever act again and I would console and assure him that he would act again, just to make him happy.

“I can’t really say this was the cause of my father’s sickness, but since his matter with the NDLEA, my dad was not himself. He used to think about his wife and he used to think about us too because he still told me a few days ago that he was not sure if he would be with us for long and I told him that he would be with us.

“I asked them to call a nurse to treat him and when I got home, I went to his room, talked to him; he was trying to talk to me, but he could not.

“Baba Suwe was taking his first drip when I got home and when he was taking the second drip, I went out to wash my kits. I was washing my kits when my mum came to tell me that my dad was dead. I had to ask her if she was joking because I just left him about five minutes ago; I rushed to his room and found out that he was dead.

“I was in shock and had to make a short video and because of the shock, I didn’t know what I was doing at that moment, so I posted it on my WhatsApp status and from there it went viral.

“I was surprised that within five minutes, the video had gone viral. What I have to say is that I’m sorry; I appeal to family members that I never meant it that way because I’m still young, but the shock affected me,” he said
