Cocaine Ingestion: Baba Suwe gets N25 million for illegal detention

Baba Suwe
 Following his illegal detention for over three weeks without proof that he
ingested himself with wraps of cocaine, an Ikeja High Court has ordered the
National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) to pay the sum of N25
million in damages to Nigeria popular comedian, Babatunde Omidina, aka
Baba Suwe.

The comedian, Baba Suwe was on his way to board an Air France flight, to
Paris at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) Lagos, on
Wednesday October 12, 2012   when he was arrested for alleged drug

As the saga ensued, the drug agency insisted that the comedian had wraps
of drugs in his system.

However, twenty three days after the arrest and after several excretions plus
bowel cleansing, the drug agency was unable to proof that the comedian had
drug in his system. He was then set free by an Ikeja high court on bail of
N500, 000.

Unhappy with the treatment meted to him and the breach of his freedom  and
human rights, the comedian sued the NDLEA through his lawyer Babatunde
Aturu and was awarded N25 million in damages. Sweet victory!
