Navy Finally Frees Comedian Cute Abiola From Detention

According to The PUNCH, the Nigerian Navy has released online comedian Abdulgafar Ahmad, alias Cute Abiola, from detention.

Commodore Suleman Dahun, a spokesperson for the Navy, verified the news to our correspondent on Friday.

Cute Abiola was reported missing on Monday, November 15, 2021, when his comedy business colleague Debo Adedayo nicknamed Mr Macaroni raised the alarm that he was nowhere to be located after reporting to his office in Navy Town, Lagos, on the same day.

Dahun announced two days after the alarm was raised that the comedian was not missing, but had been jailed for violating military rules by posting a video of himself in military uniform on social media, which was alleged to be in violation of the armed forces’ social media policy.

Dahun further stated that the comedian failed to appear when summoned to explain himself, and that he only appeared after his leave expired on November 15, 2021, and was arrested the same day.

The naval spokesman told The PUNCH on Friday that Ahmad knowingly broke the military’s social media policy but received a mild punishment after being convicted for misbehavior and indiscipline.

He further stated that the comedian is no longer in naval custody and has been freed to serve his sentence.
