Comedian Cute Abiola, Not Missing, In Our Custody – Nigerian Navy

The Nigerian Navy spokesperson, Suleiman Dahun, has clarified that popular comedian, Ahmed Gafar, popularly known as Cute Abiola, who was declared missing, is in naval custody.

The Instagram comedian, who is also naval personnel, was declared missing by his colleague, Mr Macaroni, on Monday.

Mr Macaroni shared the news on his official Twitter account and attached a series of WhatsApp messages he received as evidence.

The news sparked several reactions from Cute Abiola’s wife, colleagues, fans, and concerned Nigerians.

Mr Dahun, in a telephone interview with Premium Times, on Wednesday, said Cute Abiola violated the Armed Forces Social Media Policy.

He said the policy specifies the dos and don’ts of personnel as well as salient regulations with regards to their usage of social media on issues of official concerns.

Mr Dahun also said that Cute Abiola was summoned by his superiors from his leave to explain himself but he called their bluff and exhausted the period of his leave.

“Cute Abiola resumed and reported to his office on Monday where he was arrested and is currently awaiting trial”, he said.

Shortly after the conversation with PT newspaper, the navy spokesman issued a statement debunking trending speculations and acknowledging that Cute Abiola is in their custody.

This is not the first time the Instagram comedian would be arrested for violating the Nigerian Armed Forces Social Media Policy.

He was arrested in 2020 after his birthday pictures in a naval uniform went viral. He was later released on May 4, 2020.
