Renowned  Yoruba actor and ace comedian, Babatunde Omidina, popularly known as Baba Suwe has disclosed that many film-makers have approached him to make a movie from his ordeal in the hands of National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), which detained him for weeks on allegation of drug trafficking

The comedian who lost his wife barely over a year ago, admitted that the experience was one of the most trying times in his life as he was left confused and devastated.

He said he would never forget the experience and prayed that even his enemies should not have to go through what he went through.

According to him, “There is a film I am working on right now but whether I plan to do a movie on that matter, I will say yes. Maybe in the future though many people have contacted me to do a movie but I am still taking my time and God’s  willing, I shall visit that matter as soon as I can get myself together”

Baba Suwe is expected back in court on October  19, 2012 to continue hearing at the Court of Appeal, Lagos Division, on  stay of execution of the judgement of Justice Yetunde Idowu of a Lagos High Court, which ordered the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) to pay N25 million to the actor  as compensation for detaining him  unduly  over allegation of drug trafficking.
