Why Comedian Cute Abiola is still in detention – Navy explains

Naval personnel and online comedian, Abdulgafar Ahmad, aka Cute Abiola, has spent 10 days in the custody of the Nigerian Navy for sharing a video of himself in military uniform on social media.

NEWSCASTARS.COM gathered from The PUNCH reports that Naval spokesperson, Commodore Saluman Dahun, said Ahmad’s case is an administrative matter which is being treated administratively.

Speaking with the PUNCH on Wednesday, he declined further comments on the matter as he did not state when the comedian would be release to his family.

Dahun also claimed that the comedian failed to show up when called upon to explain himself but only returned after the expiration of his leave on November 15, 2021, and was put in custody the same day.

When asked on Wednesday whether the comedian has been released, the naval spokesman said, “An administrative process is on regarding the matter. Period!”
