In a recent interview, veteran Nigerian comic actor, Babatunde Omidina, better known as Baba Suwe, has revealed that he is currently unwell at the moment and unable to walk; no thanks to the experience he said was meted out to him by the personnel of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency.
In 2011, Baba Suwe was arrested by the NDLEA with claims that he was in possession of substances suspected to be cocaine.
“I have not forgotten about my issue with the NDLEA and I will never forget because I am still bearing the pains and suffering from that encounter.
I am still affected by the inflictions they meted on me at that time.
“As I speak with you, I cannot walk with both my legs.
Just to visit the toilet in my room, I have to be carried there. Even using the toilet is a problem as well.
“Although I travel abroad for medical check-up, my body is still not okay at all. As I said, I cannot walk to my toilet at all without assistance.
This development began about a week or two ago. Before then, I hardly walk properly and anyone who sees me would know that I have difficulty walking.”
The veteran actor, while narrating his experience in the hands of the NDLEA personnel, said, “When I was in the custody of the NDLEA, they searched me, injected me, asked me to go to the toilet, but they never found any cocaine inside my system. I defecated there and they did not see anything.
