The burial of Nollywood actor, Babatunde Omidina, popularly known as Baba Suwe, will hold on Thursday, November 25,2021.
It was gathered that the burial of the comic actor which was earlier scheduled for Wednesday, was postponed by 24 hours to allow a son of the deceased based in the United States attend the funeral rites.
“Baba Suwe’s son in the US insisted that they wait for his arrival before his burial. That was the reason why it was moved to Thursday.
“Everything is ready for the burial, it will surely take place on Thursday,” a family source told newsmen on Tuesday.
Baba Suwe, who died after a protracted illness, was adored by fans for his acting skills.
He came under national scrutiny in 2011 when he arrested at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, by operatives of National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) on suspicion of drug trafficking.
He was suspected to have ingested several wraps of cocaine and was kept under surveillance by the agency for weeks
The comic actor never got back to his old bubbly self after the encounter with NDLEA, battling one health condition or another until he died on Monday.
