The 60-year-old actor, who was accompanied by his son Sola, arrived in the U.S. to complete his medical treatment at an unnamed hospital in Rhode Island on April 22.
Baba Suwe’s ordeal began in 2011 after he was arrested at the Murtala Mohammed Airport on the suspicion that he ingested cocaine wraps.
During the encounter, the popular comedian was detained for three weeks by the agency, but no drugs were found. He has since then been facing different health complications. We hope and pray the veteran actor is perfectly fine now.
