Veteran comic actor, Babatunde Omidina, better known as Baba Suwe, has been buried.
Baba Suwe, who died on Monday after a protracted illness, was buried on Thursday – a day later than was earlier announced by the family.
The Lagos-born thespian commanded the headlines in October 2011 when he was held at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos, by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency on suspicion of drug trafficking.
Though he was later released after a court ruling, the comic actor never got back to his old bubbly self as he battled one health condition or another until he finally succumbed on Monday.
Fans and colleagues have been paying tributes to him, with the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, saying he lived “an accomplished life.”
