Adebowale Omidina, the son of a late comic actor, Baba Suwe, said his father did not recover from what he suffered at the hands of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency after he was wrongly accused of peddling drugs in 2011.
Baba Suwe died on Monday at aged 63 at his house in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State after battling a sickness.
Timeofgist recalls that Baba Suwe’s son, Adebowale Omidina, tenders his unreserved apology to the public on the circulating video of the late comedian when he died.
Speaking on his father’s sickness, Adebowale said:
He said, “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.”
