Instagram sensation and comedian, Abdulgafar Ahmad, better known as Cute Abiola, is still yet to be released from the custody of the Nigerian Navy for ‘violating and breaching Armed Forces of Nigeria social media policy.’
Naija News understands that the Cute Abiola was declared missing by his family and management on November 16.
After an outcry, the Naval command opened up about his whereabouts revealing he is in detention over certain violations.
According to The Punch, Director of Information, Navy Headquarters, Commodore Suleman Dahun, said Ahmad (Cute Abiola’s) case is an administrative matter which is being treated administratively.
The Naval spokesperson when asked whether the comedian has been released, said, “An administrative process is on regarding the matter. Period!”
Meanwhile, Dahun had earlier released a statement stating that the skit-maker flouted a direct order to report to the office.
The statement read: “Cute Abiola is not missing !!! He is in custody for breaching Armed Forces Social Media Policy.
”The young man was found to have breached the social media policy while he was on leave. So he was recalled, asked to come back, but he refused until he completed his leave which is a disobedience to particular orders”.
