According to NDLEA Director-General, Femi Ajayi,Babatunde Omidina, aka Baba Suwe would undergo Computerised Tomography Scan (CT Scan). and if the scan result shows that the actor has no drug concealed in his stomach, then he will be released.
He claimed the comic Actor will be released if after third excretion, no drug is found. This is in line with the NDLEA standard operational rule, that says suspect should be released after third excretion.
Ajayi further said Baba Suwe will only get an apology from NDLEA as he should take this as a sacrifice in the war against drugs.
He ruled out the possibility of the actor taking legal action.
Ajayi said: “As far as we are concerned Baba Suwe is innocent, at least for now, it is just normal that when there is reasonable suspicion, we take people in for observation.
We learnt that Baba Suwe would likely file a lawsuit against NDLEA for defamation of character.
Further findings revealed that Nigerian actors under the umbrella of the Association of Nigeria Theatre Arts Practitioners are currently putting arrangements in place to stage a mass protest over the continuing detention of the actor.
On Sunday, October 16 2011, the ANTP leadership circulated a message among it members reproduced below.
'This is the 4th day of Baba Suwe in NDLEA custody without anything found on him. NOW is time for us to talk. They owe us explanations as we have to act now. Be prepared for a massive rally. Expect further information on this soon, pass this message to others 4RM Prince Jide Kosoko'
The move is aimed at championing a growing agitation for the release of the suspect.
