Drama as Islamic cleric disagree with Baba Suwe family at his burial Ceremony

Funeral preparations for Nigerian renowned actor Babatunde Omidina, often known as Baba Suwe, have already begun.

On The Nation’s official Facebook page, a live clip from the late actor’s Ikorodu mansion was shared, and it was alleged that there was dispute.

The late actor’s family members and some Islamic clergy in attendance at the event appeared to be at odds over how he should be buried.

A mob of bystanders gathered at the site as the event occurred was captured in a 15-second film shared on Facebook.


One Facebook user who reacted to the recording noted that the actor should be buried according to the teachings of his religion before death.

He wrote:

Allow him to be buried in accordance with the teaching of the religion he embraced and practiced b4 he dies.”

Another individual wrote:

“Family tradition supercedes any embraced religion.The clerics should persuade the family, they can’t do it by force.
