Nigerian film-maker, Yomi Fabiyi on Wednesday mourned veteran actor, Babatunde Omidina, popularly known as Buba Suwe.
Taking to his verified Instagram page to share Baba Suwe’s burial arrangement, Fabiyi stated that those who tortured the late actor would never know peace.
The actor died on Monday at his house in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State after battling a sickness. He was aged 63.

Mourning his mentor, Fabiyi said, “I really don’t wish for this moment but God understands. I cried out, spoke out but they tried to silence and hurt me for speaking up. They envy everything including voices that fight against injustice. They use social media to kill the voice of reason.
“Those fellow citizens who inflicted and supported the pains, torture done on you Baba Suwe because they have the tools of public service power are cursed and will never know peace.
“Their generation shall not be free from such wickedness and injustice even if justice is sold for free in the land.
“Using torture or unlawful excessive force for investigation is the purest evil and wickedness to mankind. A gross human rights violation.
How can you be suspecting, accusing “someone and already punishing at Police Station level?
“We must understand that only forward thinking Nigerians can save this country. The idea of ‘This is Nigeria’ is the reason why we have not moved forward.
“They always rely on quack approaches and ideas that have sent many innocent people to gallows and avoidable deaths.
“Everyone is raised with brutality and violations, hence we can’t understand why we don’t place value for lives and right protection first. Pains. Rest on Pressy.” (sic)
