Late Baba Suwe was arrested at the Murtala Mohammed Airport in 2011 on the suspicion that he ingested cocaine wraps. During the encounter, the popular comedian was detained for three weeks by the agency, but no drugs were found. A Lagos High Court subsequently ordered NDLEA to pay the veteran actor N25 million for unlawfully detaining him and to also tender a public apology to him; a ruling the drugs agency appealed. Baba Suwe in 2018 granted an interview where he said the anti-drug agency was yet to fulfill the court order to pay him compensation.
The actor sadly passed on after a long battle with an ailment on Monday, November 22.
Yomi who was close to the actor before he passed, wrote;
FUNERAL RITES for LATE BABA SUWE.
……….really don’t wish for this moment but God understands. I cried out, spoke out but they tried to silence and hurt me for speaking up. They envy everything including voices that fights against injustice. They use social media to kill voice of reasoning.
Those fellow citizens who inflicted and supported the pains, torture done on you Baba Suwe because they have the tools of public service power are cursed and will never know peace. Their generation shall not be free from such wickedness and injustice even if justice is sold for free in the land.
Using TORTURE or unlawful EXCESSIVE FORCE for investigation is the purest evil and wickedness to mankind. A gross human rights violations. How can you be suspecting, accussing someone and already punishing at Police Station level?
We must understand that only a forward thinking Nigerians can save this country. The idea of “This is Nigeria” is the reason why we have not move forward. They always rely on quack approaches and ideas that have sent many innocent people to gallows and avoidable deaths. Everyone is raised with brutality and violations, hence we can’t understand why we don’t place value for lives and right protection first.
Pains. Rest on Pressy.”
