Comic actor Baba Suwe has been laid to rest.
Glamtush reports that the remains of veteran Nollywood veteran, Babatunde Omidina, popularly known as Baba Suwe was on Thursday, November 25 laid to rest at his Ikorodu home in Lagos.
The burial ceremony was attended by his colleagues, including Femi Adebayo, Mr Latin, Papi Luwe and many others.
However, there was a disagreement between Islamic clerics and the family of late Nollywood actor which caused a delay in the burial of the popular comic actor.
This was after a massive crowd early Thursday morning besieged the Ikorodu residence of the late actor to catch a glimpse of his body before internment.
A cleric, Sheikh Ahamad Olanrewaju Alfulanny reportedly expressed dissatisfaction over the un-Islamic practices exhibited by the family and other well-wishers. He noted that in Islam, the normal practice is to bury a dead person within a few hours of being pronounced dead.
He said although Baba Suwe, until his demise, was a celebrity Islam but he didn’t give room for unnecessary jamboree during burials.
He said, “There are so many things that they are doing, that are un-Islamic, they put his body in a casket, some other well-wishers even said they want to take his body round, but the family has told us they won’t bury him with his body inside the casket.”
