Navy breaks silence on ”missing” comedian Cute Abiola, says he is one of us, he broke a rule..
The Naval Head of Information and Public Relations Directorate, Navy Commodore Suleman Dahun, has told The Punch that popular Instagram comedian and personnel of the Nigerian Navy, Abdulgafar Ahmad Oluwatoyin, popularly known as Cute Abiola, is not missing but in detention.
Dahun, in an exclusive interview with medium, stated that the humour merchant was being detained for breaching the Armed Forces Social Media Policy.
He said, “Abdulgafar is not missing but he is in detention. About two weeks ago, we had evidence that he was exhibiting himself on social media, contrary to the Armed Forces Social Media Policy. He was on leave, so we called him back to come and explain why he was breaching the Armed Forces Social Media Policy. He refused to come back, which itself is an offence.
“We can call anyone on leave back. We need to know why he was exhibiting himself in a manner that is contrary to the provision of the Armed Forces Social Media Policy. He refused to come back. So, when he came back, we put him into custody. He is in detention he is not missing.”
His colleague in the comedy industry, Mr Macaroni, had raised the alarm that Cute Abiola might be missing. He said he went missing after reporting at his office in Navy Town, Lagos on Monday, November 15, 2021.
