Cute Abiola serving one-month punishment for ridiculing police in his skit – Navy

The Nigerian Navy has reportedly placed its personnel, OSCOMP Abdulgafar Ahmad, aka Cute Abiola, on one-month ‘extra duty’ for wearing police uniform in one of his skits and for ridiculing the Nigeria Police Force in the process.

Recall that the popular Instagram comedian was arrested on November 15, 2021, but released from detention to serve his ‘light corrective punishment’ in the cantonment.

Ahmad, 25, is expected to end his punishment by December 15, 2021, when he would be allowed to return home to his family.

NEWSCASTARS.COM gathered that Naval spokesperson, Commodore Suleman Dahun, confirmed the development to Saturday Beats on Friday saying that Ahmad was given a light punishment of a ‘one-month extra duty’ after a military trial.

Dahun said, “Cute Abiola has been placed on one-month extra duty after he was tried. He will be in charge of cleanship; supervising painting, electricians, carpentry, cutting of grasses, and others. He will be supervising civilians.

“He is no longer under detention. He has been released to move around to serve his punishment.

“Because he was detained on November 15, that one month will start counting from then, which means he is going to be engaged till December 15. By then, he will be off the extra duty.”

A military source, who spoke with our correspondent on the condition of anonymity, said an extra duty means that the comedian is the “Minister of Works in the Barracks” for the period of the punishment adding that Cute Abiola should know better as a military man and should not have appeared in a police uniform in one of his skits, let alone ridicule the sister agency in the process.

Lawyer to Cute Abiola, Fatai Adebanjo, in an interview with our correspondent, confirmed the development said;

“We appreciate the Nigerian Navy for the consideration and we know that we are counting days for him to rejoin his family,”
