Veteran actors Jide Kosoko and Mr Latin have mourned their colleague Baba Suwe who died on Monday November 22, 2021.

The veterans uploaded a photo of the man on Instagram.

“Tunde Goodnite, Rest in Peace,” Jide Kosoko wrote.

“It is the will of God. We tried our very best but we lost him,” Mr Latin wrote.

Baba Suwe began his acting career in 1971, he is well known for his comic roles in movies.

In 2011, he was accused of cocaine trafficking by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, an allegation that was described as false and defamatory by the ruling of the Lagos State High Court. His solicitor was the late Bamidele Aturu, a Nigerian lawyer and human rights activist. Many believed that the accusation triggered his health crisis.

The late actor lost his wife Omoladun Omidina in 2009. He is survived by three children.

He was aged 63.
