Baba Suwe vows to appeal judgment over N25m compensation
Mr. Babatunde Omidiran, popularly known as Baba Suwe, has vowed to appeal the ruling of Appeal Court in Lagos, which quashed the N25 million compensation earlier granted to him by a Lagos High Court against the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA.
The Appeal Court had, Friday, ruled that NDLEA had good reasons to detain Baba Suwe, and set aside the N25 million awarded by Justice Yetunde Idowu of a Lagos High Court, to the ace comedian.
Speaking through his lawyer, Mr. Bamidele Aturu, weekend, in Lagos, he said the Court of Appeal decision would be taken to the Supreme Court because it was one that could encourage the culture of impunity on the part of law enforcement agencies.
He said: 'If we do not appeal the decision, history will not forgive us. We shall be heading to the Supreme Court.'
It is a matter of public duty now.
'As soon as we get the judgment, within three or four days the appeal will be ready. Let the Supreme Court finally rule on it. We think this can also encourage the culture of impunity on the part of law enforcement agencies.'
