Cute Abiola, an online comedian with the real name Abdulgafar Ahmad, has been freed from the detention of the Nigerian Army.
Naval spokesperson, Commodore Suleman Dahun, confirmed the development on Friday.
Cute Abiola was declared missing on Monday, November 15, 2021, as he couldn’t be found after reporting at his office in Navy Town, Lagos.
However, the Nigerian Navy later confirmed that the comedian was in its detention for violating the armed forces’ social media policy.
The Navy noted that the comedian also 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 behind bars the same day.
Dahun, on Friday, however, added that Ahmad knowingly violated the armed forces’ social media policy but was given a punishment after he was tried for misconduct and indiscipline.
He confirmed that Cute Abiola is no longer in naval detention as he has been released to serve his punishment.
