Bowale, one of the sons of late actor, Babatunde Omidina, popularly known as “Baba Suwe”, has said that his father did not recover from the trauma he went through, in the hands of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency after he was accused of peddling drugs in 2011.
Bowale said that his father’s illness started after the NDLEA ordeal.
He said “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.”
He further 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.”
“On the day he died, I noticed he was acting strangely and I asked them to call a nurse to treat him, he was trying to talk to me, but he could not.”
You would recall that Babatunde Omidina aka “Baba Suwe” died on Monday at his house in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State after battling a sickness. He was aged 63.
It has been reported that the actor will be buried on Thursday at his house in Ikorodu, Lagos State.
