Ace comedian Babatunde Omidina yesterday narrated how the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) made him fish through his excreta in search of alleged drugs.

Omidina, flanked by his lawyers, Bamidele Aturu and Ugwuzor Adindu, spoke in Lagos.

He said NDLEA officials gave him gloves to put on his hands and instructed him to be looking through his excreta for the narcotic substance they alleged he ingested each time he excreted.



Omidina, popular as Baba Suwe, said his arrest and detention by the NDLEA was a set up. He said the manner of his arrest made it clear that the NDLEA had been set up to arrest him before boarding the Air France flight that was supposed to take him to Paris to attend his engagement.

He said he has not even gone through the check-in processes when a woman accosted him and said,” you, you should go to the office of the NDLEA. You are wanted there”.

Omidina said immediately he stepped into the office of the agency at the airport, “they treated me like a common criminal. They arrested me and put leg-chains on me.”

Pointing out that he did not go under the scanning machine at the MMIA before his arrest, Omidina said that the first CT-Scan that the agency performed on him was on Friday, October 14 during which he said his system was flushed.

Omidina said a day before his release by the court on November 4, a tube was forced through his mouth and another through his anus. He said he was forced to take  six bottles of water while a pill was forced into his anus, all in bid to force him to digest the alleged narcotic substance.

Aturu declared the ace comedian a free man, pointing out that he no longer has any case to answer based on events that happened when they visited the office of the NDLEA at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA), Ikeja last Friday as ordered by a Lagos High Court Judge, Justice Yetunde Idowu.

Aturu and Omidina spoke in Lagos yesterday. Aturu said the NDLEA last Friday has returned everything that was seized from Omidina on the day of his arrest which included his luggage, necklace, three GSM handsets and unspecified amount of money.

“So, as I talk to you today, Mr. Omidina is a free man. He has no case to answer. The NDLEA has seen that it has no case against my client. That was why they returned all the things they took from him when he was arrested,” he said.

Aturu described the experience of his client in the detention of the NDLEA as a violation of his fundamental rights and his experience as intolerable.

He said the way the arrest of Omidina was carried out showed that there are  a lot of things wrong in the agency, saying “maybe their machines are obsolete or that the officials and their consultants are not capable enough to handle the job they are saddled with.”

He said some institutions, including Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), have to explain their roles in Omidina’s ordeal.

While stating that he does not encourage drug trafficking in any form, Aturu explained that it was high time agencies like NDLEA were made to stop violating the fundamental human rights of Nigerians.

It's really a complex situation. But I think the NDLEA should go back and their home work properly so that such does not repeat itself. Thank God, Baba Suwe is finally freeeee.

There is more to this case that meets the eye. Somebody, somewhere is hiding something.

If they need to look through his feces then it is they who should be searching through it.  Looks like being a Nigerian citizen doesn't count for shit (pun intended).  What an indignity.
