“Veteran Actor and Comedian Babatunde Omidina a.k.a Baba Suwe has been discharged from LUTH after intense medical treatment. I can confirm to you that efforts to quickly stabilize and/or completely treat him to full wellness by medical experts at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) at the instance of Minister of Health are yielding positive results as Baba Suwe can now walk without the stick, less pain and he is getting better.
If further therapies are administered and medications adhered to, he will come out completely of the major ailments. He will, however, proceed abroad very soon to further his treatment.
Baba Suwe personally with tears of joy rolling down from his eyes ask I thank Nigerians, his fans and the media community. While expressing his deepest gratitude, he stated seriously but with humour that “Nigerians have large hearts in spite of the economic situation in the country and can revive a dead man with their kindness and good hearts if the person is not buried”.

Mudasiru Obasa (Speaker of Lagos State), v.) Alh. Abdulahi Rasaq (Corporate Pictures), vi.) Prof. Adewole, Minister of Health, vii.) TAMPAN Movie Members in Nigeria and United States, viii.) Staff & Management of LUTH, ix.) His Club Members, ACC. x.) Mayor Gbenga Adewusi, xi.) Mr Kola Olootu, xii). Hon. Mrs Abike Dabiri, xiii.) His Royal Majesty, Oba of Igbogbo, Ikorodu. Please, any omission unintentional.
While thanking you all for your esteem show of love, please be assured of Baba Suwe’s esteem regards and appreciation to all Nigerians who showed concerned. In a matter of weeks, the veteran actor will be back on movie sets to continue to do what he knows best. Many Thanks.”
